Norwegian/Italian metallers TRISTANIA entered the studio on Friday, January 4 to begin recording their seventh full-length album for a late May release via Austria's Napalm Records. The first part of the recording sessions (drums) will take place at Tanken Studio in Oslo with engineer Fredrik Wallumrød, before the band moves to another location where they will join the CD's producer for the remainder of the recordings.
TRISTANIA's sixth album, "Rubicon", was released in August 2010 via Napalm.
TRISTANIA in 2007 announced the addition of Italian singer Mariangela "Mary" Demurtas to the group's ranks. Guitarist Gyri Losnegård was added to the lineup in 2008.
The band's previous CD, "Illumination", was released in January 2007 via SPV. The effort was recorded at Woodhouse Studios in Hagen, Germany with producer Waldemar Sorychta (LACUNA COIL, TIAMAT, GRIP INC.).
