InnerWish Enters Studio For Fifth Studio Release

Greek melodic metal act InnerWish entered the studio on the 5th of August to began recording the fifth studio album and the follow up to the 2010 release "No Turning Back." The new album is slated for an early 2016 release through Ulterium Records.

Drums are being tracked at Devasoundz Studios (of Septicflesh fame) in Athens, Greece, with Fotis Benardo (ex-Septicflesh drummer and current Sixfornine vocalist) handling the recordings.

The as of yet untitled release is the first to feature the band's two newest members: George Eikosipentakis on vocals and Fragiskos Samoilis on drums.

Regarding the musical direction of the new material, the band stated: “This time things worked a bit differently, still maintaining the basic core. New members, fresh ideas were blended to our music characteristics and we believe this is the more diverse album we have ever created. Yet powerful, melodic, heavy, lyrical and full of energy. All the InnerWish elements are still here, but expanded in a way that came naturally through this long and difficult period, during which we were composing and trying to guarantee the best possible result. In the end though, we are proud with these new songs, the sound of InnerWish of today and feel confident that you will love them too! Let’s roll the dice again”.

Song titles set to appear on the album include "Broken," "Zero Ground," "Through My Eyes," "Serenity," "Roll The Dice" and "The Sins Of The Past." More...
