Guitarhoo.com conducted an interview with Ben Varon and Masi Hukari of Helsinki, Finland-based hard rockers AMORAL when they were in the Philippines for an appearance at the 13th edition of Pulp Summer Slam, the premiere metal festival in Southeast Asia, which was held on April 27 at the historic Amoranto Stadium in Quezon City. You can now watch the chat below.
AMORAL recently entered the studio today to begin recording their sixth album, due later this year via The End Records. The drums for the CD — which will feature an all-star cast of Finnish music industry people — were recorded at Sound Supreme studios in Hämeenlinna with Janne Saksa. Then the sessions moved to Helsinki and finally to Kuopio where Marco Hietala of TAROT and NIGHTWISH fame produced the vocals for the new album. The as-yet-unnamed album will contain eight songs wth a running time of almost an hour. In addition, the songs and lyrics form a whole, so it is possible to view the album as a thematic one. The CD will be mixed by Mikko Karmila, who is no stranger to dealing with large conceptual pieces.
