DENDURA, the female-fronted, prog-metal band from Grand Rapids, Michigan, has issued the following update:"We officially can release this exciting news on whom we are recording with! Grammy Award-winning producer Neil Kernon is recording DENDURA's untitled album! We are very excited to have Neil work with us on this album as we have always been fond of his work and admire the bands we has worked with. Neil worked with NEVERMORE, QUEENSRCHE, DOKKEN, TAPPING THE VEIN and Jeff Loomis' [NEVERMORE] solo project and a whole lot more. We know Neil sees our vision and can help make our album the best it can be! We have been discussing the album with Neil for several months and we discussed ideas, albums we really liked, our newer material and his work. We just finished drum tracks this week!"
DENDURA last summer inked a deal with KillZone Records. According to a press release, DENDURA are a perfect fit for KillZone "because they stand out from the norm in terms of talent, ability and marketability, bringing a presence of their own. They present an unforgettable approach to progressive metal that builds and weaves dark themes with the allure of sensual mystery. Their music and sound calls from a past that touches both the primal and inquisitive nature of our souls. They combine powerful, heavy music that drives like the shifting sands, carrying vocals like rising smoke and invoking the ghosts of a land and time long passed, but never forgotten." DENDURA previously put out a self-released album, "New Life", and contributed a song to the award-winning film "Broken". For more information, visit www.myspace.com/denduraband.
