Finnish metallers PAIN CONFESSOR are continuing work on their third album, "Purgatory of the Second Sun", at Fantom studio for a tentative early March 2007 release. A single will precede the album in February. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Mercenaries", "Last of Forever", "Dreamcrusher", "Second Sun", "My Last Words", "End", "Without Redemption/Without Remorse" and "Ne Plus Ultra".
Commented the band: "It's been a very different session for us since the production is fully our responsibility. What a massive burden has Janne Saksa carried on our previous albums. This time the material is far more aggressive and requires certain type of roughness so perhaps one way to achieve it is to give us about three or four months time to write, arrange, rehearse, record and mix most of the material for the album and leave us to produce it ourselves.
"We have had to admit time and again that by no means putting together a full length album from scratch in a time in which most people refuse even to take a shit is the easiest thing in the world. Hell, at least it will be raw and furious. This album has nine songs from which 80% is pretty much all out war and the rest 20% is heavy, like walking to the gallows."
PAIN CONFESSOR's sophomore album, "Fearrage", was released in March via Megamania. The follow-up to 2004's "Turmoil" was recorded and mixed by Janne Saksa at Studio Sound Supreme and was produced by Janne Saksa and PAIN CONFESSOR.
