Swedish death metal act ZONARIA has inked a deal with Pivotal Rockordings. The band will enter Black Lodge Studios (SCAR SYMMETRY, CENTINEX) on November 20 with producer Per Nilsson (SCAR SYMMETRY) to begin the tracking its as-yet-untitled album for a late spring release. The mixing will be handled by Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY, CENTINEX, ex-CARNAL FORGE).
Commented guitarist Emil Nyström: "We are really excited about the signing with Pivotal Rockordings. We have been in talks with them for quite a while and it didn't take long before we realized that they were the right label to release our debut album. We've grown really fond of the personnel and the way they work. They are really willing to go 100% for ZONARIA!
"The recording is starting this Monday, November 20th! It's been quite hectic the last weeks, loads of rehearsing. How this release from the 'Rendered in Vain' single is that we're not recording it ourselves, but we are working with Per Nilsson, which is going to be a blast! We are also expecting major miracles from Jonas Kjellgren behind the mixing tables! We really love all his work and we're confident that he'll do some really great things with our songs! The artwork will of course be handled by Seth, and we are really looking forward to what he can create for our debut!
"We are all very excited to hear what the new album will sound like and are equally excited to dive into the recording process! Especially since we all have developed a lot, not just as musicians and composers: but in all ways! So this debut is going to be the pay off for all the hard work we have put into this band! The metal community can expect a great album in late spring of 2007 and loads of shows in all of Europe. We are planning tours already."
