DIMENSION ZERO — the Swedish band featuring IN FLAMES guitarist Jesper Strömblad (on bass), ex-MARDUK vocalist Joakim "Jocke" Göthberg, LUCIFERION/DIABOLIQUE drummer Hasse Nilsson, and PATHOS guitarist Daniel Antonsson — has begun recording its third album, tentatively due in early 2007. "At last all the drum tracks are finished," the group writes on its web site. "14 brand new tracks. Feels great to be back in the studio after two years of hybernation. Right now we are preparing for Joakim's arrival a week from now..."
Check out pictures and video footage from the recording studio.
DIMENSION ZERO's sophomore full-length album, "This is Hell", was released in October 2003 through Regain Records. The CD — the band's first to feature Antonsson — was recorded at Phlat Planet studios in Gothenburg, Sweden with producer/IN FLAMES frontman Anders Fridén.
DIMENSION ZERO has been confirmed for the Close-Up Båten festival/day-long cruise, set to take off from Stockholm, Sweden on February 15, 2007. Also scheduled to appear are TIAMAT, DARK TRANQUILLITY, PAIN, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR and NECROPHOBIC.
Strömblad is sitting out IN FLAMES' current European tour with SLAYER, LAMB OF GOD and CHILDREN OF BODOM due to "personal issues." Filling in for Jesper is longtime friend Niklas Engelin, who previously toured with IN FLAMES in 1997-1998.
