Norwegian extreme avant-garde metal masters Quadrivium return after several years of hiatus with a new album, "Methocha," due out via SoulSeller Records on November 23rd, 2012 in Europe and February 3rd, 2013 in the USA.
The self-produced effort was recorded at various studios all over the world. It was finally mixed in Tower Studio, France and mastered in Panic Room Studio, Sweden. The eight tracks feature members from Ragnarok, Augury, and Dolls of Disaster with a guest appearance by Carl August Tidemann (ex-member of Arcturus, Winds).
Chief songwriter and keyboardist Erlend Antonsen adds: "Four years after our first album we return with an expanded line-up, our strongest material to date and a production to match. Venturing ever deeper into the avant-garde side of metal and finding different atmospheres to explore, we have finally managed to put it on tape and present it to you in the form of the Methocha album. Expect everything from full-on metal, mystical atmospheres to dives into a much darker abyss." More...
Norwegian metallers Quadrivium have issued the following update about streaming a cover of the Arcturus track "Wintry Grey" on their MySpace page:
"We have been quiet for some time now. Its time for some news.
"First we want to tell you that we have strengthened our lineup with a new vocalist that will be sharing vocal duties with Lars. His name is Attila Bakos and he hails all the way from Hungary.
"His voice will be a powerful addition and will most certainly take us to the next level. What better way to introduce him by presenting our contribution to a Arcturus tribute cd that has been released. We covered Wintry Grey and are pretty pleased with the results. We came in late in the process and had to work fast, but its alright.
"Attila did all the vocals on this one as Lars is busy with Myrkgrav these days (the new album will be killer!) We wanted to keep it cold and we feel that we managed that.
"Check out the song on our Myspace site or check out the entire tribute cd here.
"This cover song will be our last stint in that world of music. Almost all the writing for the new album is done and it will be something new and different for sure. Still metal though! Even more than before actually!
"Until next time then, keep your antimatter safely out of the reach of children!"
