Nominon - New Album Details Revealed

Swedish death metallers Nominon are busy working on their new, fifth upcoming album. The band posted the following update: "The recording of the new Nominon album is certainly moving on after a bit chaotic change of studio in the very last minute (due to some incompetent losers at the studio we had booked to start with), so with a very short notice we could start the recordings with engineer Robert Ericsson at Studio Hell, a small studio located here in Jönköping, Sweden. We actually used that studio for the latest 7" EP Manifestation Of Black, and since then the studio itself has been upgraded, that somehow was necessary before we felt that we could use it for a proper album recording."
