Spanish metal band DARKSUN will release its new album, "Libera Me", on September 29 through FC Metal/Avispa Music. The follow-up to "The Dark Side" ("El Lado Oscuro") will once again be made available in separate Spanish and English versions.
DARKSUN recently shot a video for the track "Miedo", which was produced and directed by Jacinto Hinojal/Eyes Only (who worked on RAGE's "Full Moon in St. Petersburg 2007" DVD). Watch the clip below.
"Libera Me" was produced and engineered by vocalist Dani G. All lead guitars on "Libera Me" were played by new member David Figueiras, with both David and Tino Hevia laying down the rhythm guitar tracks (Dani is no longer playing guitar in the band, as he is now solely concentrating his efforts on singing). The drum tracks on "Libera Me" were performed by Dani Cabal, whom the band re-enlisted to record the new album (he played on DARKSUN's debut album, "El Legado"). The band's new drummer is Jose Ojeda, an exceptional talent who combines the technical style of Rafael Yugueros (drummer on "The Dark Side"), with the heaviness and power of Dani Cabal.
DARKSUN is completed by founding member Pedro Junquera on bass, and new keyboardist Ana Fernández.
"Libera Me" will be released with multi-media extras, including the "Miedo" music video. As on "The Dark Side", the album will feature excellent cover and booklet artwork by Daniel Alonso (WARCRY, HARD SPIRIT).
