TORCHBEARER To Begin Mixing New Album This Week

Patrik Gardberg and Christian Älvestam of the Swedish death/black metal band TORCHBEARER are currently finalizing the rhythm and lead guitar tracks for the group's third album, entitled "Death Meditations". Christian states, "All vocals are done and to my ears Pär [Johansson] has outdone himself this time. Downright evil to the bone. I am personally also contributing a lot more vocals this time round, as going fifty-fifty with Pär. Me exclusively on low growls and Pär on the somewhat higher ones."

He adds, "I'm really satisfied with how this mixture turned out and I think you will like it too. Musically, the album will contain all the elements heard on our two previous efforts, but with a new twist to it.

"All you who like your blackened death metal fast and brutal, yet melodic, will not be disappointed!

"We will start mixing the album September 1! Release later this year via Vic Records!"

TORCHBEARER's forthcoming album will be the group's first with the band's latest additions, drummer Rolf Pilve and bassist Tomas "Plec" Johansson.
