French gothic metallers THE OLD DEAD TREE are scheduled to enter Stage One studio in Bühne, Germany in early 2005 with producer Andy Classen to begin recording the as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2003's "The Nameless Disease". A September 2005 release through Season of Mist is expected.
As previously reported, THE OLD DEAD TREE recently announced the addition of drummer Foued Moukid (ex-HORRESCO REFERENS) to the group's ranks.
Moukid joins the band as the replacement for Franck Métayer, who left the group back in February.
THE OLD DEAD TREE's original drummer, Frédéric Guillemot, committed suicide in 1999, shortly after the release of the group's debut mini-CD, "The Blossom".
