Finland's TAROT, the group led by NIGHTWISH/ex-SINERGY bassist Marco Hietala, has issued the following update:
"In the middle of touring the summer festivals, TAROT has been also been active and sweating in the studio. Currently Pecu [Cinnari] has played the drums for all the 10 upcoming album tracks and Zac [Zachary Hietala] just finished all of his guitar parts. Half of the tracks already contain their basses and next week Janne [Tolsa] is about to step in to do his synth parts. Marco's and Tuple's vocal recordings are to start after the next week and the new album should be in the mix at the end of September at Finnvox. More info on the exact release date of the album follows as soon as it's been confirmed."
As previously reported, TAROT's latest single, "You", entered the national chart in Finland at position No. 1. The single contains two tracks: A straight-forward classic heavy metal song "You", taken from the upcoming full-length TAROT album, and a BLUE ÖYSTER CULT cover, "Veteran of the Psychic Wars". The as-yet-untitled new TAROT album is expected to be released during the fall.
TAROT recently released remastered versions of their first five studio albums along with the "To Live Again" live album previously released in Japan. Each CD includes special bonus track(s).
