Norway's TRAIL OF TEARS entered Soundsuite Studio in Marseille, France with producer Terje Refsnes on June 24 to begin recording their fifth album, entitled "Existentia". A late 2006 release via Napalm Records is expected.Commented vocalist Ronny Thorsen: "The recordings are well underway. We already finished the drums and started tracking the guitars. We're poolside in Soundsuite at the moment. The sun is merciless and quite heavy for frozen Norwegian metallers to handle! Everything [is going] according to plan and it's a great relief to start the recordings without any problems for once." TRAIL OF TEARS' last CD, "Free Fall Into Fear", is available now on Napalm Records. The follow-up to "A New Dimension of Might" was recorded at Dub Studio with producer Endre Kirkesola (GREEN CARNATION, BLOOD RED THRONE).
