French gothic metallers THE OLD DEAD TREE are scheduled to enter Stage One studio in Bühne, Germany within the next couple of weeks with producer Andy Classen to begin recording the as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2003's "The Nameless Disease". A September 2005 release through Season of Mist is expected.As previously reported, THE OLD DEAD TREE recently announced the addition of drummer Foued Moukid (ex-HORRESCO REFERENS) to the group's ranks. Moukid joins the band as the replacement for Franck Métayer, who left the group back in February. THE OLD DEAD TREE's original drummer, Frédéric Guillemot, committed suicide in 1999, shortly after the release of the group's debut mini-CD, "The Blossom". THE OLD DEAD TREE have been confirmed for the 2005 edition of the Fury Fest, set to take place June 24-26 in Le Mans, France. Other groups scheduled to perform at the festival include SLAYER, IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, DIMMU BORGIR and SUICIDAL TENDENCIES.
