NORTHER Members Recording New NAILDOWN Album

Finnish melodic death/power metal band NAILDOWN — which features in its ranks current NORTHER guitarist Daniel Freyberg — has entered Sound Supreme studios in Hämeenlinna, Finland to begin recording its third album. According to Freyberg, the as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2007's "Dreamcrusher" will be recorded at several different studios "without stressful deadlines. . . This is gonna be long process, but the engine is finally running again," he adds.

Freyberg, who officially joined NORTHER in early 2010, describes the new NAILDOWN material as "really varied, from epic 10-minute songs to fast and ferocious tracks." He adds, "Even though it's been a while since the last album, the band's sound is still recognizable."

NAILDOWN's forthcoming album will mark the recording debut of the band's new drummer, Heikki Saari, who is also a member of NORTHER and AMBERIAN DAWN.

"I'm thrilled to have Heikki onboard for his first NAILDOWN album," says Freyberg. "His spectacular style and technique is a real asset to the band."

"Dreamcrusher" was released in March 2007 via Spinefarm Records. The CD was recorded at Sound Supreme studios, mixed at Hansen studios and mastered at Finnvox studios.

Formed in November 2003 under the name ACID UNIVERSE, NAILDOWN's sound has been described as a mixture of "CHILDREN OF BODOM, IN FLAMES and SOILWORK, with power metal riffs, while effortlessly alternating between several vocal styles (from the gruffest Alexi Laiho bark to AMORPHIS-style croon)."
