Following a hugely successful European tour with Insomnium in January, Finnish progressive death metal outfit BARREN EARTH have returned to their home country to start preparing to record the follow-up to 2015’s 'On Lonely Towers' at Woodshed Studios in March with producer V. Santura.
Vocalist Jón comments,
"We are working towards a darker and more aggressive feel, which we attempt to express both experimentally and with a good dose of blunt force!"
Bassist Oppu adds,
“The melodic and melancholic side is naturally still there, but spiced with a touch of anger and groove. I’m also looking forward of working with Victor, since we all appreciate his previous work. It also is the first time Barren Earth works with a proper producer, and are very excited about the idea of bringing somebody else into the mix and seeing where that takes us."
This is how V. Santura comments on the cooperation: “I am really excited about working with Barren Earth! The guys are fantastic musicians and the demo material I’ve heard so far sounds very promising."
