BARREN EARTH Begins Recording New Album

Finland's progressive death/doom maestros BARREN EARTH have entered Helsinki's Sonic Pump Studios to record the follow-up to last year's highly acclaimed debut album, "Curse Of The Red River". The band has written 12 new songs, and is currently laying them down with engineer/co-producer Jukka Varmo. Dan Swan (KATATONIA, OPETH) will once again be at the mixing helm. The tracks mainly continue in the vein of the previous record, having perhaps even more '70s prog influences, but maintaining the basic heaviness and brutality one has come to associate with BARREN EARTH.

The album is due for release in autumn 2011 on Peaceville Records, and the artwork will be made by Paul Romano (MASTODON). Studio reports will be updated at BARREN EARTH's Facebook page.

BARREN EARTH recently completed a successful U.S. tour with fellow Finns FINNTROLL and ENSIFERUM, and received the accolades of "Newcomer Of The Year' at the Finnish Metal Awards and "Best Debut Album" at the Metal Storm Awards 2010 for "Curse Of The Red River".
