ELVENKING To Enter Studio Next Month

Italian folk/power metallers ELVENKING will enter Sonic Pump Studios in Helsinki, Finland on February 24 with producer Nino Laurenne (AMORPHIS, LORDI, SONATA ARCTICA, APOCALYPTICA) to begin recording their new album for a mid-2012 release via AFM Records. Nino previously worked with the band on "The Winter Wake" and "The Scythe" CDs.

"I think it is too soon even for us to understand exactly how the new album is going to sound in the end," says ELVENKING guitarist Aydan. "We know that the final result could be very different from what we expect at the beginning of the recordings and we are still putting the final touches to the songs and we need to choose which one are good enough (or less crappy at least!) to be recorded. But for all of those who is asking me how it is going to sound, I would say it will be surely heavier, still very melodic and a bit back to the roots with a lot of good old folklore in it. Expect some great surprises as in ELVENKING tradition. You're going to love it!"

Drummer Zender left ELVENKING last year for "personal" reasons and was replaced by Symohn.

ELVENKING's "Your Heroes Are Dead" video can be viewed below. The song comes off ELVENKING's most recent album, "Red Silent Tides", which was released on September 17, 2010 in Europe (November 9 in North America) via AFM Records. The CD was recorded at Piranha studios in Karsdolf, Germany with producer Dennis Ward (ANGRA, PINK CREAM 69, PRIMAL FEAR). The album's cover artwork was created by Samuel Araya, who has previously worked on CRADLE OF FILTH's "Thornography" CD.
