Italian progressive metallers ELDRITCH have entered the studio to begin recording their ninth album for an early 2014 release.
A short video clip from the drum-tracking sessions can be seen below.
ELDRITCH's eighth studio album, "Gaia's Legacy", was released in September 2011 via Scarlet Records. A concept effort dealing with global warming based on Al Gore's documentary "An Inconvenient Truth", the CD saw ELDRITCH going back to its technical progressive roots, with lots of influences raging from thrash to AOR and a modern approach still in the band's distinctive style. Frontman Terence Holler wrote all the lyrics after a deep search of information on every kind of source for the last three years.
"Gaia's Legacy" was produced by Marco Ribecai and Eugenio Simone at Syncropain Products Studio in Pisa, Italy, and mastered by Göran Finnberg (OPETH, IN FLAMES, EVERGREY, DARK TRANQUILLITY) in Sweden. FIREWIND's Bob Katsionis, a longtime fan of the band, is credited as special guest keyboardist on the song "Like A Child".
ELDRITCH 2013 is:
Terence Holler - Vocals
Eugene Simone - Lead and Rhythm Guitar
