Finnish melodic death metallers Tacere has entered the studio to record the follow-up to 2007's "Beautiful Darkness."
Guitarist Karri comments on the band's first day in the studio:
"The first recording day is now behind of us… Today we spent most of the time with tweaking the drum set-up and the drum sounds, but we also managed to drum tracks for one full song - 'Storm of The Century.' It was mostly pain free, we just went through the song a couple of times and that was it - perfectly played drum tracks. We also played through the song 'Absolute Power' once, but the tuning of the snare drum had gone down so the sound was not good enough, and we decided to continue tomorrow and retune then (as it was already really late).
A short clip of the 1st take of Absolute Power:
"I’m very happy with the sounds also - I think that the raw sounds for recording that we got out of our setup are the best raw drum sounds I’ve had during my career, so that’s pretty awesome.
"We tried to be very mimimalistic with the drumkit, and left out everything that we possibly could… We’re looking for a very organic drum sound anyway, and we will do no time-editing and no triggering/sampling for the drum sounds, quite the contrary to what most of the metal bands do these days… The exception of course beign electronic drum parts (which we will have quite a few of on the new album)."

The new female singer of the Finnish melodic metal masters Tacere is "Taiya R." from Tampere, Finland. She was selected after a long application process lasting for over 6 months.
Tacere also hired a new keyboard player, "Veli-Matti Kananen", who is best known for playing with bands such as Poisonblack and Eternal Tears of Sorrow.
Here is what the band's leader "Karri Knuuttila" had to say about the situation:
"We were astonished about the huge amount of singers applying for the band from all around the world. Making a decision about the new singer was hard as there were a lot of talented applicants, some of who already had existing publicity and status. But in Taiya we found the perfect singer: She is extremely talented, looks killer, has a very cool attitude & stage presence and most importantly her personality fits the band perfectly. Now with the new line-up the motivation of the band is higher than ever and we're really excited about the future of our band."
Tacere is planning to enter the studios in February 2009 to start recording a follow up for the 2007 debut album "Beautiful Darkness." The release date has yet to be announced as the band is still looking for a proper partner to release the album with. The band will also have the first live performance with the new line-up already during this month in Helsinki, Finland.

Finnish metal band, Tacere, issue the following announcement regarding the departure of vocalist Helena Haaparanta on their MySpace page:
"Helena Haaparanta is no longer a member of Tacere. She was an excellent vocalist and performer so this is of course very unfortunate. But the fact is that the ways of Tacere and Helena departed only because of personal reasons and this has nothing to do with the band or its music, or Helena's skills. As far as we know Helena always loved Tacere's music and this was a very tough decision for her - one that just had to be done. We wish her all the best with her future musical endeavors."
