Finnish melodic death metallers Omnium Gatherum have officially entered the studio and began recording their sixth studio album and follow-up to last year's New World Shadows.
Commented the band: "The 6th album studio sessions have already started secretly in silence and are flowing together really nice and easy! The drumming madness of Jarmo "Kammm!" Pikka was already caught on tape at Nordic Audio Labs studio in Vaasa by engineer Sami Koivisto (Amorphis, Sotajumala etc.). Now we are in the middle of other recordings at Teemu Aalto Productions & OmG studio in Kotka, where the recordings are made with our trusted man Teemu Aalto. The mixing & mastering will be done again by Dan Swanö at Unisound studio - so expect nothing more but the best!"
"Joonas Koto will be making his OG album debut on this album with his awesome flawless action-Jackson guitar skills, so the guitar duo Vanhala / Koto is on fire here like never before! The bass parts will be played by Eerik Purdon, the legendary man behind the bass lines of The Redshift."
"We've done a huge amount of pre-production for the album in the shadows, during the gig break on the first half of this year and all we can say is... sounding astoundingly gooooood! The new album will surely continue from where New World Shadows left but there'll be also some stylistic echoes from the The Redshift past as also lots of new spices and flavours. The next chapter of Adult Oriented Death Metal that is..."
The tentative release date for the album is set to February, 2013.
