MONSTER MAGNET's Ed Mundell has laid down "ripping guitar tracks" for the upcoming ninth studio album from Finnish goth metallers THE 69 EYES, tentatively due in September. The CD is currently being tracked with the Grammy-winning producer Matt Hyde (SLAYER, MONSTER MAGNET, FU MANCHU). The recording process is taking place both in Helsinki and Los Angeles.
Commented THE 69 EYES drummer Jussi 69 (born Jussi Heikki Tapio Vuori): "We used SLAYER's 'God Hates Us All' for long to wake us up before the shows on tour back then, I guess that's where the name Matt Hyde came into our mind."
THE 69 EYES recently completed a European tour as part of the Hellhounds Fest 2009, also featuring TIAMAT and AVA INFERI.
Quality video footage of THE 69 EYES' February 18, 2009 concert in Munich, Germany can be viewed below (clip uploaded by "eblinternational").
THE 69 EYES released a box set called "Goth'n'Roll" in Finland on Halloween. The set, which contains three CDs and one DVD, documents THE 69 EYES' period from 1998 to 2003 when the band broke into the mainstream success in Finland and spread their Helsinki vampire bat wings over Europe.
