FALCONER: New Album Release Date Announced

Swedish metallers FALCONER will release their seventh album, "Armod", in Europe on June 3 via Metal Blade Records. The CD features 11 songs completely sung in Swedish and four bonus tracks that are said to be English versions of the bandmembers' favorite new songs.

"Armod" was once again recorded at KING DIAMOND guitarist Andy La Rocque's Sonic Train Studios in Varberg, Sweden during December and January. FALCONER states, "The recording and mixing process went smoother than ever before.

"The album is embracing the Swedish folk music to a greater extent than before making it sound slightly more down to earth.

"The music spans from acoustic songs with cello, flute and fiddle to songs with blast beats and really heavy riffing.

"As said before this is a 'one-time-only' album and does not define the future sound of FALCONER, but it was about time to pay full notice to the infuence that has always made us different. Now we have that out of our system!"

Songtitles set to appear on "Armod" include "O, Tysta Ensamhet", "Svarta Änkan", "Dimmornas Drottning" and "Herr Peder Och Hans Syster".

FALCONER is:

Mathias Bladh - Vocals
Stefan Weinerhall - Guitars
Jimmy Hedlund - Guitars
Magnus Linhardt - Bass
Karsten Larsson - Drums

FALCONER's most recent album, "Among Beggars And Thieves", was released in August 2008 via Metal Blade Records.

FALCONER in 2007 extended its deal with Metal Blade for another four albums.
