Sweden's KATATONIA have entered Fascination Street studio, located in the outskirts of Örebro, Sweden, to begin recording their new album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Peaceville Records. The band have posted the following recording update on their official web site:
"After a misty cold gig in Estonia and a melting hot gig in Greece, we're now back in the studio again to put down the last rhythm guitars. This weekend Mattias will come down and start recording bass and after that we'll continue with additional clean and lead guitars and also start the vocal session. Fascination Street has two studios, so we can work simultaneously at both while being at different stages of the recording process all thanks to that clever thing they call 'clicktrack.' The material is sounding very heavy already."

KATATONIA's last album, "Viva Emptiness", was released in 2003.
As previously reported, The End Records recently licensed through their sub-label Infinite Vinyl series KATATONIA's "Saw You Drown" — a mini album from 1998 that collectors regard as maybe the rarest and most-wanted item in KATATONIA's discography. The vinyl version is limited to 1,000 copies, all hand-numbered. It also features an unreleased band photo, lyrics to all songs, plus personal liner notes from the band.
