||It's been close to a year since Italian power metal outfit Drakkar released their latest album When Lightning Strikes. That though hasn't slowed the band down because they are working on yet another new album tentatively scheduled for release later this year.
The band posted the following statement regarding their upcoming fifth album: "The 5th album is taking shape. It's probably gonna be a very direct, straight-to-the-point record, to balance the complexity of When Lightning Strikes. As usual, we'll try to have something new in it, something we haven't done before, like some Irish influences, for instance... we need to keep things fresh and entertaining, for ourselves, and for you guys! Have a wonderful 2013, all of you!"
When Lightning Strikes was released via My Kingdom Music.
