Swedish Viking metal act MÅNEGARM has issued the following update:
"After three weeks in Studio Underground, we're finally finished with our new album 'Vargstenen' (The Wolfstone). Everything has gone very well although it has been three hectic weeks. We have been working really hard, 14-15 hours a day, just to get everything in place…
"Anyway, we are really, really satisfied with the album recording. The songs that we have recorded feel great and Pelle Saether has, as always, done a fantastic job with the sound and with the mix. We all think that the production is the best ever and we are totally convinced, and we hope that we can convince the rest of you, that this is going to be the best MÅNEGARM album we have released so far.
"Our new album, 'Vargstenen', is expected to be released somewhere around March/April 2007 so make sure to keep your eyes open, it's going to be something really special!!!"
"Vargstenen" projected track listing:
01. Uppvaknande-Ur själslig död
02. Minnen-En fallen fader
03. Den gamle talar (accoustic)
04. Genom världar nio
05. Visioner på isen
06. Vargbrodern talar (accoustic)
07. I underjorden
08. Nio dagar, nio nätter
10. Vedergällningens tid
11. TBA (accoustic)
The upcoming CD will be MÅNEGARM's first for Black Lodge Records after a ten-year collaboration with Displeased Records. An early 2007 release is expected.
