Woodshed Session Complete & Studio Diary Online

Posted in News with tags , , , , on February 12, 2012 by kuolemanlaakso

Kuolemanlaakso has finished recording the instrument tracks for their upcoming debut album at V. Santura‘s (Triptykon, Dark Fortress) Woodshed Studio in Enghof, Germany. The vocals will be captured on tape in the near future in Finland.

It’s been a pleasure working with Mr. Santura. We had, of course, high expectations of his talents as a producer and a master of sound, but the flawlessness of our cooperation just blew us away. The album will sound absolutely crushing, and we’ve had a helluva time making it“, states guitarist-songwriter Laakso.

Read the first studio diary entries.

We are thrilled, proud and honoured to announce that Kuolemanlaakso will record its debut full-length at V. Santura‘s (Triptykon, Dark FortressWoodshed Studio, in Enghof, Germany, starting February 1st, 2012. In addition to recording, Mr. Santura will also co-produce, mix and master the album.

The album will feature eight tracks of epic darkness and musical despair, recited in Finnish. At this point, we do not have a release date as we haven’t started negotiating with record labels yet. The shadow will grace the face of the earth this year, one way or the other…

Keep checking the site for updates from the studio. The first mark has been carved.
