Finnish melodic death metallers CRYSTALIC have issued the following update:"We are hitting D-Studio on December 19, 2008 for the drum recordings of our second full-length album. Rest of the instruments and vocals are going to be handled by Deaf Ear Music with Matti Auerkallio at the helm. "There's definitely some surprises coming your way with the new material. For example, the fastest CRYSTALIC song to date (with some blastbeats!) and also the slowest one. Stay tuned for a possible studio diary, photos, videos etc once we get going!" CRYSTALIC parted ways with vocalist Jarno F. Moberg this past spring and replaced him with Matti Auerkallio (ex-FARMAKON, FOXY FLAMMABLE, AVENIE, DUALITY). CRYSTALIC released its debut album, "Watch Us Deteriorate", last year via Thundering Records. Check out audio samples at this location. Former CRYSTALIC frontman Jarno F. Moberg makes a guest appearance on latest CD from Finnish metalheads MACHINE MEN, available now on Century Media. Jarno is featured on the album's title cut, "Circus of Fools".
