Norwegian prog outfit Leprous have commenced the recording sessions for their as-yet-untitled new studio album, to be released in early 2013 on InsideOut Music.
Commented Leprous singer and synth player Einar Solberg: “As many of you already know, we’ve started recording our new album. The drums are finished, and we’re now focusing on the guitars. Also this time we’re using Vegard ‘Ihsahn’ Tveitan and Heidi ‘StarOfAsh’ S. Tveitan as our producers/technicians. The drums were recorded in the really cool and old school Juke Joint Studio, and we’re really satisfied with the result.
“As far as the new music, we can only remind you that Leprous will never be the kind of band to re-create the mood from previous works, and it’s very important for us that each album has its own strong character. We have great belief in this album and we promise something fresh, challenging and soulful! This album will also be mixed and mastered by Mr. Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.”
I’d be interested to see how Ihsahn influenced the sound of the new Leprous.
I see this as a good thing.
