Finnish melodic metallers MASTERSTROKE are currently recording their new full-length album at MSTR Studios in Tampere, Finland for a tentative late spring release via Dynamic Arts Records. The drum tracks for the as-yet-untitled effort were laid down at Fantom Studios (KORPIKLAANI, MACHINE MEN) with the help of Samu Oittinen. The recording sessions for the new CD are expected to last through the end of January.
MASTERSTROKE recently posted the sixth and final video clip in a series documenting the band's spring 2008 European tour with JON OLIVA'S PAIN (led by SAVATAGE mastermind Jon Oliva) and MANTICORA. Watch the footage below.
MASTERSTROKE's sophomore album, "Sleep", was released in Japan on March 19. The CD was issued in Europe via Dynamic Arts Records.
MASTERSTROKE was formed in 2002. After a few lineup changes and several gigs, the band received a well-earned recording deal. The group's debut album, "Apocalypse", was supposed to receive a worldwide release through their previous record label JMT Music. Unfortunately it didn't happen. In the end "Apocalypse" was issued only in Japan, Russia and CIS countries due to the label going out of business.
