Last December, it was revealed that Norwegian black metallers Ancient were working on their seventh album to finally follow Night Visit (2004). Recently, the band updated on that. Their comeback album is being recorded and will be called Chapter VII: Back From The Land Of The Dead, for a release around September.
Nick Barker recorded the drums for the CD at Alpha-Omega Studio in Como, Italy, and the guitars are in the process of being laid down right now. Founder and frontman Zel (a.k.a. Aphazel) will record vocals with Jacob Hansen (who also produced the Proxima Centauri album from 2001) in Denmark.
One song on the album will feature guest vocals by Martyr Lucifer of Hortus Animae and Martyr Lucifer. The master is expected to be ready in May.
