Finnish extreme metallers CHAOSWEAVER have commenced work on the material for the band's sophomore album, tentatively due in 2010. The group's bassist/backing vocalist Max Power states, "We've written tons of material, wickedest of which will make it on the record. Jack [Tyger, drums], Albert [von Fleischer, guitar] and I have been sweating in the studio whole week, working on the arrangements and recording some new riffs.
"It's impossible to say at this point, what the end result will sound like, but the songs are VERY diverse, massive, beautiful and evil. If you've heard [CHAOSWEAVER's debut album] 'Puppetmaster Of Pandemonium', you'll probably be surprised — in a good way. We've streched the opposites even further, and introduced plethora of new levels and elements in our dark craft. The melodies have grown fairer, the riffs stronger, the orchestrations bigger, and the mood even more bizarre but at the same time catchier. OLD MAN'S CHILD meets THE KOVENANT meets SWALLOW THE SUN meets ANGELO BADALAMENTI in a David Lynch movie."
CHAOSWEAVER last year recorded a cover version of the ARMY OF LOVERS song "Crucified", which was included on the second pressing of "Puppetmaster of Pandemonium".
"Puppetmaster of Pandemonium" was released in April 2008 via Shadow World Records and distributed by Playground Music Scandinavia in Finland, Estonia, Lithuania and Latvia. The CD features guest appearances by Jules Näveri (PROFANE OMEN, ENEMY OF THE SUN), Rotten (ex-DEATHCHAIN, SURVIVORS ZERO), Aleksi Munter (SWALLOW THE SUN) and Ville Sorvali (MOONSORROW).
CHAOSWEAVER's two demos — "Weaving the Chaos" (2006) and "Cult of the Buried Serpent" (2007) — received rave reviews an international airplay.
