German melodic metallers ARVEN will release their second album, "Black Is The Colour", on August 23 via Massacre Records.
The band spent the past few weeks recording choirs, orchestrations, guest vocals and violins. After the recordings were completed, Markus Teske mastered and mixed the album at the Bazement Studio.
"Black Is The Colour" will be available as jewel case CD, digital download as well as limited-edition digipak with exclusive bonus tracks (cover versions of Irish folk songs). Jan "Örkki" Yrlund (Darkgrove Design) was responsible for the cover artwork.
