Swedish thrashers CARNAL FORGE have issued the following update:
"The pre-production of the new album has been a long, long process but in the end it has been really worth it. We have gone through all the arrangements and vocal parts in a way that we never have done with CARNAL FORGE before. The result is just utterly brilliant. We have also tried some stuff that we never did in CARNAL FORGE. We have a couple really heavy songs. One is so slow it almost falls apart... haha...
"Some wonder why it takes so goddamn long time this time around, but the thing is that we live in three different cities, so we have met for pre-production work once, maybe twice a month to work together. On all other albums with CARNAL FORGE, the vocals were made in the studio. But I promise you it's worth the wait... Soon we'll start the real recording..." More...
Carnal Forge bassist, Lars Lindén, has posted this message on the CF's official website:
We have started to record some vocals to some of the new tracks. Our rehearsal place is slowley forming into a studio... that is nice. So making demos is a lot easier now. Tomorrow [singer] Jens and I are going up to Sala to work on some more stuff with the other guys.
