IRONWOOD: New Album To Be Mixed By DAN SWANÖ

Australian progressive metallers IRONWOOD have tapped Swedish producer and multi-instrumentalist Dan Swanö to mix and master their sophomore CD, "Storm Over Sea", for a late 2010 release.

"This album is a huge evolution from our first effort," said IRONWOOD vocalist/bassist Henry Lauer. "We've fully assimilated our progressive, acoustic, and metal influences into a concise, yet epic and evocative, whole."

Inspired by the majesty of the ocean, and featuring dizzying technicality, rich vocal harmonies, and the introduction of new elements such as piano, cello, and fretless bass, "Storm Over Sea" is "set to leave an indelible mark in the world of underground music," according to a press release.

"Storm Over Sea" track listing:

01. Hail Sign
02. Infinite Sea
03. Arctic Tern
04. Weather The Storm
05. Share The Burden
06. Will To Live
07. A Bond To Sever
08. When It's All Over


Phil Brown - Vocals, Guitar
Henry Lauer - Vocals, Six-String Bass
Dan Nahum - Drums
Matthew Raymond - Vocals, Guitar

IRONWOOD's debut album, ":Fire:Water:Ash:", came out in 2009.
