Swedish melodic death metal band ZONARIA has finished tracking the songs for its upcoming, as-yet-untitled debut, tentatively due this fall via Pivotal Rockordings.
Commented guitarist Emil Nyström: "As I'm writing this our man Jonas Kjellgren is sitting in his Black Lounge Studios (SCAR SYMMETRY, SONIC SYNDICATE, CARNAL FORGE) mixing our new album. For all we know we put our life in his hands, and we're certain that the final product will be amazing. We are as excited as you are to hear the final results. Hopefully he's finished with it this weekend. We've also got more stuff in the works: Music videos. For the last few weeks, we have been planning and discussing music videos for the upcoming album. We have some cool ideas and Standard Film Team also have some really awesome ideas. So we are really looking forward to woking with them again. It's going to be a blast and for sure we're gonna turn out with a good video for the song 'Armageddon Anthem' which will also be the first single from our debut album!
"Even though the album will be finished this coming weeks and we'll record a music video the coming months, the album won't be released until September this year. Yeah, we know, it's too far away. But it's the only solution — 'cause we want to make sure everyone gets a chance to buy the album. For those who can't wait — we'll probably do some summer festival shows this year and some one-off gigs whenever we get the chance.
"ZONARIA has also been hand-selected to have their video for the song 'Rendered in Vain' featured on the video game The Darkness, whose developers may be known for the highly acclaimed Playstation/Xbox game The Chronicles Of Riddick: Escape From Butcher Bay. This opportunity to be part of a video game is really exciting. It's another dream come true. I've always wanted to be part of a video game, and now our music is on it. You got to check the game out when it's released. I know for sure it's going to be killer. And if you don't like the game, at least you'll like the music on it. I also know the guys from BLINDED COLONY have their video on it, so it will be packed with amazing bands."
