Swedish hard rock band ALL ENDS entered the studio on November 2 to begin recording its second full-length album for an early 2010 release. The forthcoming CD will mark the recording debut of the group's new singer, Jonna Sailon, who replaced Emma Gelotte (sister of IN FLAMES guitarist Björn Gelotte) in March.
ALL ENDS's new album is being produced by Roberto Laghi, who is said to be one of the most successful engineers and producers in Sweden (having worked on recordings that have collectively sold more than two million copies). He has recorded, mixed and produced such artists as IN FLAMES, MUSTASCH, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR and DIA PSALMA and has mixed the latest album from SONIC SYNDICATE. He primarily works out of IF (In Flames) Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.
Commented drummer Joseph "Joey" Skansås: "So the drums are done; great sessions and a great last song to record...
"The drums on the record are not groundbreaking just really nice and laid back with an awesome sound, but hey, I'm not in this band to show off. When we write songs and drum ideas, we listen to the songs and the lyrics and try to combine everything to the best. That's why i love drummers who play with a less-is-more attitude...
Great inspiration/drummers: Tommy Lee (MÖTLEY CRÜE), Niklas Sigevall (ELECTRIC BOYS), Taylor Hawkins and Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS), SHOTGUN MESSIAH (drum programming).
"So now we will concentrate on the bas and guitar recordings, so tonight I will try to get some sleep and start fresh tomorrow."
ALL ENDS will support KAMELOT on the following dates in April 2010:
Apr. 10 - Gothenburg, SWE - Trädgårn
Apr. 11 - Stockholm, SWE - Tyrol
The self-titled debut album from ALL ENDS was released in Germany on September 26, 2008 via GUN Records. The package contains a special feature and a bonus DVD with several videos.
