MARIONETTE: U.K. Tour Video Diary Released

Gothenburg, Sweden based metal sextet MARIONETTE recently came home from a two-week, fifteen-date trek across the U.K. with DEATHSTARS and THE DEFILED.

A tour video capturing the excitement and debauchery of MARIONETTE's second U.K. trek of 2009 can be viewed below.

Upon arrival in Gothenburg after the U.K. tour, MARIONETTE entered Studio Fredman with legendary producer Fredrik Nordström (IN FLAMES, AT THE GATES, ZONARIA) to begin the mixing process for the band's as-yet-untitled sophomore release.

Prior to the U.K. tour, MARIONETTE tracked the album with Pontus Hjelm (DEAD BY APRIL, ex-CIPHER SYSTEM) and two-time Swedish Grammis award-winning producer/composer Åke Parmerud in Gothenburg.

The CD will be mastered by Peter In De Betou at Tailor Maid Production (OLD MAN'S CHILD, DARK TRANQUILLITY, DIMMU BORGIR) in Stockholm Sweden, for an expected fall 2009 release via Listenable Records.

MARIONETTE lead guitarist and backing vocalist Aron Parmerud recently described the band's new album as monumental evolutionary step from its predecessor, "Spite". "Unlike the recording process of 'Spite', we will record over a period of months, and we will have plenty of time to try new things in the studio to make the album absolutely insane," he said. "Every element that you heard on 'Spite' will be taken to the extreme. At the same time, there is a clear evolution from 'Spite' to this album. All of the live experience we have had while touring in support of 'Spite' has made us more skillful as individual musicians and tighter as a band. All this will reflect itself on the album when it is in your hands!"

"Spite" was released in North America in September 2008 via Koch/Listenable Records. The CD was recorded, mixed and mastered with a team of up-and-coming and established producers, including Simon Exner (AS YOU DROWN), Christian Silver (SONIC SYNDICATE, THE CROWN, BY NIGHT) and two time Swedish Grammis-winning composer/producer Åke Parmerud.
