Video footage of Christian Älvestam (SCAR SYMMETRY, MISERATION, THE FEW AGAINST MANY) laying down guest vocals for the sophomore album from Australian melodic death metallers UNIVERSUM can be viewed below.

UNIVERSUM will enter the studio in the coming months to commence recording the follow-up to their debut album, "Leto Destinatus".

Due for release in early 2010, the follow-up to UNIVERSUM's debut album, "Leto Destinatus" — tentatively titled "Mortuus Machina" — will feature guest guitar solos from NIGHTRAGE axemen Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mörck. Jens Bogren of Sweden's Fascination Street Studios (OPETH, SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH, KATATONIA) will once again handle both mixing and mastering duties.

UNIVERSUM lead guitarist Michael Soininen previously stated, "We are all excited by how the new album is developing so far and believe that the songs have a newfound depth, both musically and lyrically. The combination of the new material, the great guest musicians Christian, Marios and Olof, along with Jens' mixing and mastering should result in a great album."

In the year since the release of "Leto Destinatus", UNIVERSUM made a major impact both in Australia and internationally and has received widespread acclaim from the media and its ever-growing legion of fans. The success of the debut album, together with live performances alongside international big guns DRAGONFORCE (Australian national tour) and CRADLE OF FILTH, a string of endorsements and a very well received video clip has seen UNIVERSUM quickly become regarded as one of Australia's premier melodic death metal acts.
