DARKWATER Hard At Work On New Material

9:10 AM / Posted by metallic sucker and moslem militan /

Swedish melodic/progressive metal band DARKWATER has issued the following update:

"We've understood that a lot of people are curious and would like an update on what is going on with DARKWATER at the moment. It's now been a while since we released our first album and we quite recently parted with our bass player. So what is really happening in the dark waters?

"Regarding the bass player spot, we have auditioned several people but still haven't found exactly what we are looking for. We will keep looking until we find the perfect match. In the meantime we will use Simon Andersson (ex-PAIN OF SALVATION) as a session player. He is an amazing bass player with lots of experience, and a better substitute would probably be impossible to find.

"And what is happening with the new album? For quite some time we've gone through all the music we've had laying around, re-written a lot of it and written a bunch of new songs. So right now we have far too many songs to put on one album, or even ten albums. But we are doing our best to choose the most fitting songs for this upcoming album. We still have a lot of lyrics to write and also some melodies, but we are planning to head into the recording studios later this year. So sometime next year there will be a new DARKWATER album out for you to enjoy."

DARKWATER's "The Play - II" video can be viewed below. The track comes off the group's debut album, "Calling the Earth to Witness", which was issued in Sweden in May 2007 via Ulterium Records.

"Calling the Earth to Witness", was mixed by Pelle Saether (ACT, SKYFIRE) at Studio Underground and was mastered by Göran Finnberg (IN FLAMES, THE HAUNTED, DARK TRANQUILLITY) at the Mastering Room.
