AVA INFERI To Enter Studio In November

AVA INFERI, the Portugal-based band whose lineup includes guitarist Rune Eriksen (a.k.a. ex-MAYHEM guitarist/songwriter Blasphemer), will enter the studio in November to begin recording its third album, "Blood Of Bacchus", for a 2009 release. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Fireflies", "A Witch She Was, The Witch I Am", "Lights", "Last Sign of Summer" and "All the Colours of the Dark".

Commented Eriksen: "The studio has now been chosen and the majority of the votes landed on Top Room Studio (ULVER, ARCTURUS, MAYHEM) in Norway (again). We have been wandering those territories at earlier stages of our career but it's with renewed passion we enter the woods once more. Chief technician [Børge] Finstad + 1 will be supervising and doing the magick this album deserves.

"We will head into the studio (armed to the teeth with red wine) on Monday the 24th of November and finish off the ritual at Winter Solstice. I believe this is just enough time to capture what we have in store this time around.

"I'd say that as far the material goes, we are more than 80% done with the music, or perhaps closer to 85%, actually. All basic fundaments, tons of layers, rhythmics and vocal lines have been crafted and we are so very curious of the final outcome of this album. Emanating Bacchus in the bliss of winter...

"Some special guests will also appear this time, but all will be revealed when the time is right.

"In the meantime, watch out for our five-date Scandinavian tour kicking off in Tampere (Finland) the 8th of October!"
