Guitar and drum tracks have already been recorded, with bass and vocals to follow.
As with Darksun's last release, "El Lado Oscuro" ("The Dark Side"), there will be separate Spanish and English versions of the album.
Californian metallers DARKSUN have issued the following update:
"Thats right, after playing a sold out show back in August we went straight into the studio to begin production on our CD. We have spent six months working our asses off just so this would be one of the best CDs anyone has ever listened to.
The CD will be available the night of our first show back on March 16th at the Whiskey A Go Go with our good friends DIVINE HERESY. The album is titled Eternal Crucifixion and it's the heaviest mother fucker you've listened to.
In 2008 we take this band to the next level, thanks for all the support. A brand new website should be up within two or three weeks so get your asses to the show on the 16th because it will sell out."

FC Metal Recordings has announced as its inaugural signing the exceptional heavy metal band from Asturias, Spain, DARKSUN. In September 2007, FC Metal will release "The Dark Side", the English-language version of DARKSUN's second album, "El Lado Oscuro". "The Dark Side" will be the band's first album sung in English, as their first two highly acclaimed releases — "El Legado" and "El Lado Oscuro" — were both sung in Spanish.
"The Dark Side" was mixed by Dennis Ward (ANGRA, SILENT FORCE, ADAGIO, SYMPHORCE), while the vocals were produced by Lars Ratz (METALIUM). The album features a guest appearance by singer Peavy Wagner of RAGE on the song "Prisoners of Fate" (DARKSUN also collaborated with RAGE on their "Speak of the Dead" album, creating a Spanish version of the song "Full Moon" entitled "La Luna Reine", which appeared as a bonus track).
