The band will record the follow-up to 2014’s critically acclaimed Voyage in an isolated fjord where they will set up a studio in an old ballroom and work with producer Axel “Flexi” Árnason who also worked with the band on their last album.
Recording sessions will last 2 weeks, aiming for a release in the first half of 2015.
Commented the band: “The songwriting sessions have been going on since around October 2012 when our album Voyage had been out in Iceland for a month. We immediately started writing at that point so some of the songs are quite old for us. Because of that we have a bit too many songs but we intend to make this album around 10 tracks so we can put what we think are the best tracks on the album.
Right now we are doing demos, polishing the stuff and thinking of ways to nicely add to the production of the songs.
We are very excited to start recording this album. It’s going to be interesting to work on. The album is a bit different from our previous album – it’s a bit darker, a bit heavier, a bit more melodic but definitely all in a good way.”
