Finland's AMBERIAN DAWN have released the following update:
"So, after hundreds and hundreds of hours spent in studio by playing, recording other people playing and producing the album, I'm really happy to realize that we're finally at this very magical moment, when the mixing sessions have started.
I and the whole band have put even more effort on this album than never before and I'm sure that this new album is going to be best AD album so far. Some songs on this album are probably best that I've ever composed and there's also one instrumental song on this album, which I wrote in 1992 and it was supposed to be released on some Rock Opera project. Unfortunately this project never happened due some unfortunate happenings. But now, after 20 years, this one song is going to be released. All other songs are new and are not covered with dust.
If you liked the sounding of 'The Clouds Of Northland Thunder', which was mixed by Teropekka Virtanen, you'll going like the fact that this new album is going to mixed by the same guy at legendary Finnvox Studios in Finland.
As you know, guitarist Kasperi Heikkinen injured at summer and was unable to play at all for several months. That's why Kasperi was replaced by our ex-guitarist Emppu on our latest European Tour this fall. It even seemed like Kasperi wasn't able to play on this new album at all. But a miracle happened and Kasperi got his hand better only a few days before the mixing sessions started and he was able to play something on this new album after all!! So, Kasperi is back on our happy line-up again.
We're announcing a release date and a cover art very soon....pics and video footage from studio also coming up quite soon."
