Denmark's ESSENCE Taps Producer PETER TÄGTGREN For Next Album

Danish thrashers ESSENCE will enter Abyss studios in Pärlby, outside Ludvika, Sweden on February 13, 2012 with producer Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY, PAIN) to begin recording their sophomore album. The CD will be mastered at Black Lounge Studio by SCAR SYMMETRY guitarist Jonas Kjellgren.

Commented ESSENCE: "We feel incredibly honored and grateful that Peter will produce our next album. He has influenced European metal in a way rarely seen through his work as producer and especially through his music in PAIN and HYPOCRISY. We believe that he has made some of the best metal and best productions the metal community has heard, and therefore we are very glad that he wants to work with us."

The band continued, "With the recordings in 2012 we will start a new, challenging and different chapter in ESSENCE's musical universe.

"It is important to us that our music is evolving and changing in a healthy way. Music should grow with the band and evolve alongside with the natural development which the band members go through. To accommodate this development, and in relation to our future plans in the longer term, Peter and his abilities the perfect choice for us. "
