Italian folk/power metal band ELVENKING are continuing work on their third album, tentatively due in the fall via AFM Records. The latest installment of the group's studio diary, featuring video clips and photos from the recording sessions, can be found at Elvenking.net.
The follow-up to 2004's "Wyrd" is being recorded at the group's own Sherpa Studios while the mixing will take place at Sonic Pump studios in Finland with Nino Laurenne (THUNDERSTONE, WINTERSUN). The final mastering will be handled by Mika Jussila at Finnvox in Helsinki. Cover artwork and booklet layout are being designed by Hungarian artist Havancsák Gyula (ANNIHILATOR, GRAVE DIGGER).
ELVENKING recently announced the departure of guitarist Jarpen. For the time being, the group will go on as a five-piece.
