Italian folk metallers KRAMPUS have announced their collaboration with renowned producer Tommy Vetterli (ELUVEITIE, CORONER, 69 CHAMBERS). The band entered the studio less than a year after the release of its debut album. Rather than producing a full-length CD, KRAMPUS has chosen to spend a week recording some of its favorite material and to release it later this summer as a free download.Says the band: "We are extremely excited to announce that we have entered Tommy Vetterli's renowned New Sound Studio in Switzerland! Not only are we recording some of the new material we've been working on for months now, but we have decided to break with current conventions (and restrictions!) and deliver the results to our fans mere weeks after recording — FOR FREE. "Rather than waiting years to produce a new album, we have chosen to pick two favorites out of all the material we've written and to record them with Tommy Vetterli — one of the genre's best producers today, less than a year after the release of our debut album. We are doing so independently and on our own terms! A first song will be released later this summer and we can't wait to share it with you."
