||Italian prog metallers Eldritch have signed a worldwide deal with Scarlet Records for the release of their eight studio album, Gaia's Legacy - a concept album on global warming based on Al Gore's documentary An Inconvenient Truth. The album will see the light of the day in late September 2011.
Gaia's Legacy will see Eldritch going back to their technical progressive roots, with lots of influences raging from thrash to a modern approach still in the band's distinctive style. Frontman Terence Holler wrote all the lyrics after a deep search of information on every kind of source for the last 3 years.
The album was produced by Marco Ribecai and Eugenio Simone at Syncropain Products Studio in Pisa, Italy, and mastered by Göran Finnberg (Opeth, In Flames, Evergrey, Dark Tranquillity) in Sweden. Firewind's Bob Katsionis, a long-time fan of the band, is credited as special guest keyboardist on the song "Like A Child".
