SAMAËL Finish Recording New Album

Switzerland's SAMAËL have finished recording their new album, tentatively due this summer. Recorded over a three-and-a-half month period in two different studios, using four different sound engineers (for electronic, guitars, vocals, and acoustic takes), and co-produced by Waldemar Sorychta (who had worked with the group on most of their previous recorded output), this CD is said to be "the most complex and the heaviest recording the band have ever produced."

SAMAËL are going to France this weekend to play at the La Rotonde festival and they will then fly straight to Stockholm, Sweden to mix the album. The mixing duties will be handled by Stephan Glaumann (BON JOVI, RAMMSTEIN). Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Oriental Dawn", "Telepathic", "As The Sun", "High Above", "Heliopolis" and "Further". The album is set to be released on SAMAËL's own label, Galactical Recordings, with exclusive licenses to Musikvertreib for Switzerland and Regain Records for Europe/Asia. An American licensing deal has yet to be signed.
