||After the release of Beneath in 2011, Amoral are back in the studio after completing the writing stages for their sixth album. The drums are being recorded at Sound Supreme studios in Hämeenlinna. Marco Hietala (Tarot, Nightwish) will produce the vocals for the new album, which will be released later this year. The yet unnamed album contains eight songs, yet the overall length reaches almost an hour. Also the songs and lyrics form a whole, so it is possible to view the album as a thematic one.
Message from the band: "The upcoming album features an all star cast of Finnish music industry people. Having crossed the globe in support of their previous album Beneath, Amoral is happy to begin the recording sessions for their sixth album today. The drums are being recorded at Sound Supreme studios in Hämeenlinna with Janne Saksa. Then the sessions will move to Helsinki and finally to Kuopio where Marco Hietala of Tarot and Nightwish fame will produce the vocals for the new album."
"Working with Janne has always been a lucrative proposition, but after four albums together, we felt like it would be healthy to try new approaches to making an album. Spending a weekend with Janne recording the drums gives us a welcome illusion of familiarity and security, before we take the plunge for ourselves. As for working with Marco, it's something we have discussed since Ari joined the band, but due to conflicting schedules this is the first time we get to test out this working combo", says Ben Varon the guitarist for Amoral, who also acts as the producer for the new album.
The album will be mixed by Mikko Karmila.
