German melodic black/death metallers SUIDAKRA have set "Caledonia" as the title of their eighth album, tentatively due next fall. The follow-up to this year's "Command to Charge" will be a concept album dealing with Scotland's ancient history. "At the moment, the band are working on the album's eighth song, and it is fair to say that 'Caledonia' will be more in the 'folk melodic death metal' style that SUIDAKRA are well known for," reads a posting on the group's web site.
SUIDAKRA's most recent CD, "Command to Charge", is available now on Armageddon Music. The follow-up to 2003's "Signs for the Fallen" was recorded at Gernhard studio in Siegburg, Germany. Mastering duties were handled at the Monoposto Mastering Studio (DIE TOTEN HOSEN, SCORPIONS, TITO & TARANTULA, etc.).
