FACE DOWN Prepares To Record New Album

FACE DOWN, the reunited Swedish outfit featuring former THE HAUNTED singer Marco Aro, has posted the following update on its official web site:

"We're still writing material for the next album like crazy, and it's going very well. We have booked studio time (at Offbeat Studio, where we did the 2004 demo) for a demo recording, starting on November 24th. We'll record 3-4 new songs of blazing thrashing mayhem in the usual FACE DOWN style. First time for Chris [drummer Christofer Barkensjö; KAAMOS, BLACKSHINE] in the studio with the band, so we're really looking forward to that. If all goes well (which we don't doubt it will) you will see some new music up here in about a month or so. We've also booked a new show the same weekend, just to make ourselves as busy as possible. We'll play at Club Undertaker in Södertälje with RAISE HELL on Saturday 25th of November. Still no idea of when we're able to record the new album, but we're hoping for some time next spring."

Barkensjö joined FACE DOWN in February 2006 as the replacement for Erik Thyselius, who will continue to be involved with CONSTRUCDEAD and TERROR 2000.

As previously reported, FACE DOWN entered the Swedish hard rock album chart at position No. 19 with their latest effort, "The Will to Power", back in November 2005. The CD was recorded at Fear and Loathing Studio with engineer/producer Jocke Skog and was mastered at the Cutting Room.
