SUSPERIA, the Oslo, Norway-based extreme metal band featuring vocalist Athera, bassist Memnock, drummer Tjodalv (DIMMU BORGIR) along with guitarists Elvorn and Cyrus, are in the final stages of recording their forthcoming album, "Unlimited" —the band's first for their new label, Tabu Recordings (a division of Norway's Tuba Records).
Most of the album is being recorded at Subsonic Society Studios in Oslo while the drums were tracked at Studio Fredman (AT THE GATES, SOILWORK) in Gothenburg Sweden, where the final mix and mastering will also take place.
Titles for some of the newly recorded tracks include: "Home Sweet Hell", "Chemistry", "Beast By Design" and "Mind Apart". Commenting on the songs, vocalist Athera said, "The songwriting has taken an enormous turn, not only innovative but harder, heavier, faster, and even more powerful. This new material has to be heard to be believed." SUSPERIA have also chosen an interesting song to cover, which will be featured on a special edition of the "Unlimited" album. While the exact details are being kept under wraps at the moment, it has been revealed that an internationally renowned Norwegian band originally recorded the cut.
Almost two years have passed since the release of the bands groundbreaking extreme metal album, "Vindication", the follow-up to their 2001 debut, "Predominance", which saw the international press praising SUSPERIA as one of the freshest and most interesting bands around at the time. The albums paved the way for their appearance as co-headliner at the Milwaukee Metal Fest in 2002 and a headline mini tour of Mexico.
"Unlimited" is set to hit the streets worldwide in March 2004.
