Ensiferum have been locked away at the Astia Studio in Lappeenranta, Finland with producer Anssi Kippo for three weeks. Drums, bass, and most of the guitar parts have been recorded. At the end of last week, guest musician Timo Väänänen tracked some takes with his kantele, and over the weekend, vocalist Petri Lindroos began tracking vocals!
Bassist Sami Hinkka has this message for their fans:
"Hi folks! For the last few days, Mahi and Pete have sweated their asses off whilst recording guitars. Songs sound, like our friends in UK would say, bloody awesome! Today (Friday, September 26th) we recorded kantele and some special guitar tracks. Tomorrow it's time to set up a microphone and start recording the vocals. Things are proceeding as planned."
The album is tentatively scheduled for release worldwide on Metal Blade Records in early 2015.
