Italian metallers ELVENKING will enter Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland on February 24th to start recording the new album with producer Nino Laurenne (who has already worked with the band on The Winter Wake and The Scythe albums and known for his work with AMORPHIS, LORDI, SONATA ARCTICA, APOCALYPTICA).
“I think it is too soon even for us to understand exactly how the new album is going to sound in the end,” says guitarist Aydan. “We know that the final result could be very different from what we expect at the beginning of the recordings and we are still putting the final touches to the songs and we need to choose which one are good enough (or less crappy at least!) to be recorded. But for all of those who is asking me how it is going to sound I would say it will be surely heavier, still very melodic and a bit back to the roots with a lot of good old folklore in it. New drummer Symohn will be immediately put in the middle of the battlefield against Nino to lay down the drum tracks at the highest level. Expect some great surprises as in EK tradition. You’re going to love it!”
A release date for the follow-up to Elvenking's 2010 release Red Silent Tides has not been officially set yet. More news soon.
