Frontman Zak Tell of the Swedish rap/metal combo CLAWFINGER has issued the following update on the writing/ recording sessions for the group's new studio album:"It's Friday afternoon and Bård [Torstensen, guitar] just left the building to make the long drive home and reunite with his wife for a week before he comes back again to continue the work on the new album! In the meantime Jocke [Skog, keyboards] and me will continue to work, maybe with a slightly less hectic schedule than Bård's but we'll keep the work coming in, I promise! (Clawfingers crossed behind my back, he he.) We now have rough mixes of six finished tracks and there are a couple more that only have small detail pieces lacking; we just never got round to getting those last details done this round, but we'll get there soon, believe me! "I'm looking forward to a well-deserved weekend with the family and I'm even thinking about taking my first shower in a week. I smell fucking awful but I just haven't had the time to deal with unimportant things like personal hygiene! "During the time off I'll be sure to listen to the tracks we have so far on my home stereo. It's always fun to hear how songs sound in different enviorments and audio equipment! "What else is happening?! Well, nothing. All we do is sit here in our little room and brainstorm, write and record day in and day out, all in the name of entertainment!:D "As always, I'll try and keep you updated as frequently as possible. Hell, if I have to, then I'll even make something up to make it seem like the procedure is more exciting than it actually is. Still I guess for someone not in a band the whole idea of a studio and a bunch of sweaty guys sitting in it is pretty exotic.....weird thought, ha ha!" CLAWFINGER's latest album, entitled "Hate Yourself with Style", was released in the U.S. in February via Nuclear Blast Records.
