ANCIENT To Enter Studio In January
Norwegian black metallers ANCIENT will enter the studio in January to record their new album, tentatively due in the spring through Metal Blade Records. The CD will be recorded at Mirage and Alpha-Omega studios and the mixing and mastering will take place in early February at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden.
The as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2001's "Proxima Centauri" will contain 10 new tracks — three written by Jesus Christ and the remaining seven by Aphazel, Dhilorz and Grom. A video to promote the album will be shot in London in February.
Among the songtitles set to appear on the CD are the following:
01. Envision The Beast
02. Fuel The Flames
03. Raping The Children Of Abel
04. Night Visit
"The new album will show a somewhat new musical direction for the band, although with a good amount of the typical ANCIENT sound as always," the group write on their web site. "The band has been focusing more on dynamics and power this time, in order to make it an album very catchy and interesting. As usual the songs are all rather diverse, resulting in an album to not be bored of easily."
