AMBERIAN DAWN Begins Recording New Album

August 21, 2008

Finnish female-fronted metal band AMBERIAN DAWN has issued the following update:

"Well, since we had some free time on our hands... we were thinking, 'Why not record some new stuff and put a second album out somewhere around spring 2009? Doesn't sound bad, does it? I know.... First album was just released and European tour with EPICA is more than close. Like we don't have anything else to do than go to studio... We just love creating music for you!!!

"AMBERIAN DAWN will follow the same path with the second album. We are so happy of the feedback what our debut album, 'River of Tuoni', has received. Thank you all so much for you support!! So far 13 songs have their drums and guitars recorded. Heidi [Parviainen] has done also some vocals... still long way to go but better be early than late."

Video footage from the recording sessions for the second album can be viewed below.

AMBERIAN DAWN has been confirmed for the Dames of Darkness festival, set to take place September 27 at The Asylum in Birmingham, England.

"River of Tuoni", the new video from AMBERIAN DAWN, can be viewed below. The clip was directed by Matti Kuusniemi in Jyväskylä and features animated 3D graphics in the spirit of the lyrics in addition to the powerful band performance in a studio environment.

AMBERIAN DAWN had its debut album, "River of Tuoni", released in European territories outside of Finland on June 16 via Ascendance Records. Two tracks from the CD — "Valkyries" and "River Of Tuoni" — can currently be streamed on the group's MySpace page.

The band previously stated: "Our [Finnish] label, Suomen Musiikki, has defined AMBERIAN DAWN's music as fantasy metal, but as always, the genre borders are very thin and hard to define. Our music has definitely fantasy in its lyrics... but melody and rhythm are the key components."
