POISONBLACK Frontman Discusses Making Of 'Lust Stained Despair'

POISONBLACK's Ville Laihiala recently told MTV.com that the band's forthcoming second album "Lust Stained Despair" sounded "like shit" the first time he heard it. The group recorded the LP more than two years ago, but it didn't quite live up to the ex-SENTENCED frontman's standards. "That's the reason why we postponed it," he explained. "And also, I opened a bottle, and it stayed open for six months, so that was also a reason."

But this spring, the Finnish gothic metallers headed back into Tonebox Studio, in the band's hometown of Oulu, Finland, to record several new tracks and revisit others. "We recorded three new songs and some additional keyboards here and there, and then I flew to Denmark to mix it, so it would sound the way it sounds right now," Laihiala explained. "I am happy with it now. Everything feels great. We know we have a pretty strong album that we really feel honest about, and we've been rehearsing like apes."
