KEEP OF KALESSIN Putting Finishing Touches On New Album

Norwegian extreme metal four-piece KEEP OF KALESSIN recently entered the studio with producer Rune Stavnesli (NECROPHAGIA) to begin recording the follow-up to 2006's "Armada" for a spring release.

"We were supposed to deliver the final mix for mastering today (January 31) at 3:00 p.m., however, we decided to do some changes to the title track in the last minute," stated guitarist Obsidian C. "After a phone call with the mastering studio, we were able to postpone the upload of the files until 7:00 a.m. tomorrow. As we're moving close to the deadline, me and Rune had only two hours of sleep last night and we're in way over our heads by doing these changes so late..."

KEEP OF KALESSIN took the metal scene by the throat with 2006's "Armada", which won a number of accolades in the best publications out there, including top review scores in Metal Hammer and the Norwegian national and regional dailies — Dagbladet (6/6), Bergens Tidende (6/6), Adresseavisen (6/6), Tronderavisen (6/6).

Fan-filmed video footage of KEEP OF KALESSIN performing the song "Many Are We" at last year's Brutal Assault festival, which took place August 9-11, 2007 at the Old Army Fortress Josefov in Jaromer, Czech Republic, can be viewed below.
