Montreal, Quebec, Canada-based black/death metallers NECRONOMICON have issued the following update:
"We are happy to anounce the extras on [the third NECRONOMICON album] 'Return of the Witch' have been recorded. Extras featured include Arianne Fleury (ex-AUGURY) and Roxanne Constantin (NEGATIVA, QUO VADIS) and others.
"Rob the Witch's (guitars, vocals) recovery from a throat injury is going well. A minor infection is still on and off but everything should be good for the April 3 show at the Metropolis in Montreal [with DIMMU BORGIR and BEHEMOTH].
"Some tests will be done this weekend while Rob will be recording his vocal tracks on the album. If everything is good, the band should be ready to mix really soon.
"Scheduled for first week of April, the entire crew and, of course, the producer, as well as the band, will meet on the set for the video clip of 'The Time is Now' [which was premiered during the band's last tour with BEHEMOTH] to talk about the last details before setting the official date of shooting."
NECRONOMICON previously stated that the follow-up to 2003's "The Sacred Medicines" would "probably be the fastest and most brutal" CD the band has released thus far.
Other songtitles set to appear on the album include "Into the Fire", "Alpha Omega", "The Awakening", and "Return of the Witch".
