HFMC is currently in the studio recording the follow-up to the Live DVD/Album No Place Like Home - The Concert (2017). This time the band has chosen to record at Soundfront Studios (Studio 1 Kjellarn) together with sound engineer Kjell Sandberg. The amount of music recorded so far could easily make a double CD. Still the band has decided to concentrate on making approximately one hour of music ready for release around summertime 2018. Among the songs the band is focusing on is Sleeping With the Ghost, All Those Faces and a 25 minute epic called Parallell Life. According to Hasse, the direction of the music on the still untitled album is: "More technichal but without us losing the heart and soul we put in to our music. I'd say all the elements that's required for the classic HFMC sound are in place but definitely with a new twist. You better learn to expect the unexpected.

Join the guys for this event and make it magic – No Place Like Home -
“…It turns out that “this one” is a quite marvellous “Pages” which, in common with just about everything else in this magnificent 75 minutes, is incredible. Much of it – including the aforementioned tune, is from their new “HFMC” record, and although it only came out this year, it has that timeless, classic quality that only the best Prog Rock has. Almost flawless, it is the stone-cold stunning “Something Worth Dying For” that really shines. Froberg and fellow guitarist Anton Lindsjo meshing superbly and trading licks just for the fun of it.” (Maximum Volume Music, UK)
“As the sound of the sonorous ticking of a clock fills the room, I am transported once more to a murky Sunday night in London. Downstairs in The Underworld, the lights go down, Hasse Fröberg and Musical Companion take to the stage, and those of us who are fortunate enough to be gathered there are treated to an experience of such exquisite virtuosity, passionate commitment and joyful dedication to musical expression that I doubt (and most sincerely hope) that it will ever be forgotten “ (Progradar, UK)
