German melodic folk/death metallers SUIDAKRA have inked a deal with AFM Records. Due at the end of March, the band's tenth album, "Book Of Dowth", was recorded at Gernhart Studio in Siegburg, Germany with producer Martin Buchwalter. Famous Belgian graphic artist Kris Verwimp once again created the cover artwork and lyrical concept.

Commented the band: "The recordings for 'Book Of Dowth' went even better than expected. We shit you not! Never before have recordings gone as smooth as this time, because all people involved were well prepared and very focused."

A four-minute video clip featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the studio can be viewed below.

"Book Of Dowth" track listing:

01. Over Nine Waves
02. Dowth 2059
03. Battle-Cairns
04. Biróg’s Oath
05. Mag Mell
06. The Dark Mound

In addition to preparing for the upcoming recordings, SUIDAKRA spent the last few weeks filming a video for the song "Dowth 2059". The band said, "It's our first collaboration with director/producer David Thelen and even though the post-production has just started, one thing is for sure: it will kick some serious ass!"

SUIDAKRA will embark on a "major European tour" in March/April 2011 with ONSLAUGHT and DEBAUCHERY. In addition, SUIDAKRA will return to Spain in early March for a "small tour" with EQUILIBRIUM and support act NORTHLAND.

As previously reported, guitarist Sebastian Hintz has left SUIDAKRA due to "work-related circumstances." His final concert with the band took place on December 4, 2010 in Belgium. A new touring guitarist has already been recruited for SUIDAKRA's shows in 2011: Marius "Jussi" Pesch from KINGDOM OF SALVATION.

SUIDAKRA's ninth album, "Crógacht", was released in the U.S. in March 2009 through Wacken Records/SPV.
