ATARGATIS To Enter Studio In June

German symphonic gothic metal band ATARGATIS, which features in its ranks female singer Stephanie Luzie (DARKWELL), will enter Hellion Studios (DARKSEED, EQUILIBRIUM, SYCRONOMICA) in Munich in June with producer Seref A. Badir to begin recording its new abum for a late 2007 release via Massacre Records. According to the band, the follow-up to 2006's "Wasteland" will probably be called "Nova" and will once again be a concept album. The new CD "is going to be even more epic, even heavier and even more powerful" than its predecessor, according to the group. Female violinist Tialupa will once again play the violin on the new album, as will several guest musicians that have yet to be announced.

In other news, ATARGATIS has uploaded two rare demo tracks to its MySpace page. "Angels Crying" and "From Sirius" (the latter featuring a guest appearance by GRAVEWORM's Stefan Fiori) come off the "Divine Awakening" demo and can be heard at this location.

"Wasteland" was mixed and mastered at Alex Krull's (ATROCITY, LEAVES' EYES) Mastersound studios, and it featured guest appearances by Stefan Hertrich (DARKSEED) on vocals, Moritz Neuner (LEAVES' EYES, ATROCITY, DARKWELL) on percussion and treble flute, and Susanne Zisky, formerly of the Junge Sinfonie Berlin, on the violin.
