Recently we finished the recordings of our third full-length CD at Soundlodge Studio in Germany with Jorg Uken. The mixing will also be done by Jorg in February. The title is: Divine Incarnation. We recorded 9 blasting death metal tracks with an evil and twisted atmosphere. Soon the track list and release date will be announced."
US metallers Believer have issued the following update in regards to their forthcoming full-length album:
"We're pleased to announce that mixing and mastering for the upcoming album is complete. We decided early on in project that we wanted an outside person to mix the record so we could spend more time writing and recording. Kevin Leaman (Believer guitarist) recommended Kevin Gutierrez from Assembly Line Studios for mixing this record. Leaman had worked with Gutierrez previously and said that he was really easy to work with. From the first telephone conversation it was clear that Gutierrez understood exactly what we were looking for sonically and he seemed really interested in helping us achieve that.
Mare, the new album by Norwegian pagan black metal band Kampfar, will be released on March 25th in Europe and April 5th in North America through Napalm Records.
The album was produced by Peter Tägtgren at Abyss Studio.
According to the press release, Mare opens a new chapter in the Norwegians' band history, while delivering a true monument to black metal. Frontman Dolk and the rest of the band have achieved the difficult task of giving their sound new impulses without losing their unique style. Isolated keyboard passages and sprechgesang consort with icy riffs, dark melodies, and oppressive drums. Dolk's raw vocals continue to set the pace, while giving songs like "Bergtatt", Volvevers", and the title track such intensity that they are left with no other choice but to crawl under the skin of even the most discerning black and pagan metal fans.

Our long time producer John Custer (Blind, Deliverance, Wiseblood, America's Volume Dealer, Arms Of God) will be working with us again on the new record and Mike Dean has threatened to join in on some of the production work as well. Also a lot of touring in the very near future.

Looking forward to all."
