KIVIMETSN DRUIDI, who played a massive European tour supporting fellow Finnish folk metallers KORPIKLAANI last October and November, has entered Noice Camp studio in Turku to begin recording its debut album, tentatively due in October.

Commented the band in a statement: "KIVIMETSN DRUIDI members are extremely pleased with the deal with Century Media Records whose impressive catalogue speaks for itself. It is great to be a part of the Century Media family with such awesome bands like TURISAS, STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, LACUNA COIL and ARCH ENEMY."
