||Gothenburg based metal sextet Marionette recently entered Studio Fredman with producer Fredrik Nordström (In Flames, Bring Me The Horizon) to begin recording the band's as of yet-untitled third album. Guitarist and backing vocalist Aron Parmerud made the following remarks regarding the recording sessions and progress thus far:
"The recordings for our third album are underway! We spent a great deal of time after our last UK/EU tour with BLESSTHEFALL working on new songs and ended up with over 14 songs. Last month Jimmy came in and nailed each of the songs on drums and from there we began tracking the guitars and bass all at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg. Keyboard player Linus Johansson and I are working with the ambiance of the music and the keyboards. Vocalist Alexander Andersson is currently working hard on the lyrics and vocal lines. We've made some studio photos available on our Official Facebook Page.*
Fans of our Spite and more so Enemies albums will find some familiar elements in our new songs. Listeners will certainly hear contrasts between brutal and beautiful, progressive and catchy, and up-tempo and down-tempo. There are more elements that will be very new to our listeners. We're eager to perform a few of these new songs live on our upcoming "The SlaughTour 2010" dates in the UK and Denmark, and our recently confirmed shows with fellow Gothenburgers Dark Tranquillity in Sweden and Norway. So come out, see us live, and be the first to hear some new Marionette songs this October and November!"
