ANTIMATTER Set Title For New Album

Britain's ANTIMATTER, a group made up of current and past members of popular post-metal merchants ANATHEMA, have set "Planetary Confinement" as the title of their third album, tentatively due in February. "The album is acoustic-based, and will have a much more organic feel than 'Saviour' or 'Lights Out', this time featuring natural strings, piano and drums," reads a posting on the group's web site. "Some of Duncan's [Patterson] recordings will be of interest as one is a track that was originally intended for 'Alternative 4'. ANATHEMA fans will also notice 'Eternity Part 24', which is a modern version of 'Eternity Part 4'. Duncan and Mick worked seperately in their home countries for this release, involving local musicians.

"Duncan is currently mixing the Irish sessions for the album. Confirmed song titles are 'Line Of Fire', 'Planetary Confinement', 'Relapse', 'Mr. White' and 'Eternity Part 24'. The sessions will feature guest performances from local Irish musicians.

"Recording and mixing is now complete for the English half of the album. Mick recorded four tracks in mid-July ('A Portrait Of The Young Man As An Artist', 'Legions', 'The Weight Of The World' and 'Epitaph'), choosing to abandon all electronica and produce an all-natural session, complete with live drums and violins, the latter performed by Rachel Brewster of Liverpool band MARLOWE. Recording took place in Studio 33, Liverpool and was engineered by Ronnie O'Keefe."
