Original news, posted on 28.11.2009

Dark Tranquillity will release We Are The Void, due in Europe on March 1, 2010 via Century Media Records.

The drums for the CD were recorded at bassist Daniel Antonsson's studio, while the remaining instruments were tracked at Martin Brändström's (electronics) newly renovated Rogue music facility. The mixing duties are once again being handled by Tue Madsen (Halford, Behemoth, Kataklysm, The Haunted) at his Antfarm studio in Århus, Denmark. Working songtitles set to appear on the CD include "I Am The Void", "Zero Distance", "The Burden Of Love Alive", "Archangelsk" and "Memories In Reverse".

Regarding the musical direction of the band's new material, Dark Tranquillity previously said, "It's a bit too early to delve into details, but the material feels diverse and fresh and covers all the facets of the Dark Tranquillity sound. Those who are familiar with our songwriting process know that we always keep re-arranging and experimenting with the material until the recording starts, and while we currently have the basic foundations for around 10 songs, many things are still open. The final result is likely to surprise ourselves as well as you people."

The band's follow-up to 2007's Fiction was recorded at Dark Tranquillity's very own Rogue Music studio and mixed and mastered by Tue Madsen at Antfarm Studio in Denmark.

The cover art has got a new feel to it, but I don't like it very much. The same goes for the song, the keyboards are unnerving.

The reason why the cover art doesn't really feel like they use too is that it's not Niclas Sundin doing it, and that is why it didn't feel that he did it too me in the first place (reffering to an older post I did here).

Don't know but ''Dream Oblivion'' has some Scar Symmetry vibe in it also the titles of the tracklist as well,the cover maybe reminds In Flames,anyway I'm looking forward to it

Weak cover art, a "single" that sounds like it could have been on Fiction (an already bland album)... I mean it's good for the people who like hearing the same thing over and over, but I for one appreciate growth and DT haven't made any strides to change since the outstanding Damage Done.

I think I'm finally coming to and end with my love for melodic death/Gothenburg/whatever-you-want-to-call-it metal.

Where did you hear this news? And who is responsible for that album cover?

Troy, Niclas Sundin said it himself in one of their Studio Reports for "We are the Void".

Bad art. just seems so uninspired.

Edit. lol! On their myspace, in the group photo, 4 of the members are doing the exact same thing with there hands (thumbs in the jeans). Originality FAIL... I still love you DT

Thanks for the info mango; it's just unfortunate because Niclas Sundin definitely has great vision and his album art is always something to be admired.
