THE SCOURGER To Enter Studio This Week

Finnish thrashers THE SCOURGER — who scored a sensational No. 1 single in their home country with "Hatehead" last year — have issued the following update:

"Only three days to go and we start recording the drums for the new studio album at Seawolf Studios in Helsinki. There are currently 11 songs to choose from and let's see how many will end up on the album.

"After the recording of the drums we hit the road with NAPALM DEATH and then we will finish the album during the last winter and first spring months.

"We feel a certain need to work without a specific deadline for the different parts of this recording. This means that we will take some time to find the sound and production we think that the songs need.

"Well, what about the songs then? At this moment in time we don't feel comfortable to share any titles yet. We want to reserve the right to change things, if we feel like it; you propably understand this more than well. However, we can tell you that in the last months or so, three different album titles have been considered. Now it feels like one is clearly above the other two."

THE SCOURGER reissued its debut album, "Blind Date with Violence", in October across Europe via Germany's Cyclone Records. The bonus material on the CD was taken from "To the Slayground" EP, the "Maximum Intensity" single and the Tuska 2006 live performance.

THE SCOURGER was formed in 2003 by former GANDALF singer Jari Hurskainen, guitarist Pekka Hämäläinen and drummer Seppo Tarvainen. Jani Luttinen of THE WAKE took the second-guitar post from Harri Hytonen, this new lineup debuting with a hometown (Helsinki) support to TRIVIUM in October 2005. THE SCOURGER issued their full-length debut, "Blind Date with Violence", produced by BLAKE's Aaro Seppovaara, in January 2006. In May Jani Luttinen injured his hand, necessitating WARMEN's Antti Wirman stepping in as substitute.
