Norway's Sworn has issued the following statement about the band's upcoming third full-length album:
"First of all, we want to thank all contest participants, winners will be contacted during September. Also check out our brand new myspace design! Regarding our third album, we're making a lot of progress. The song writing is pretty much finished, same goes for lyrics. Also the album title is set, but we will not reveal it at this point - so stay tuned for that!
"Some words about the material so far: Earlier there's been a mix between very melodic/atmospheric tracks and straight forward almost thrash-like tracks on our albums. We do this because we have a passion for both styles, and love to incorporate them into the Sworn sound.
"What we've done on this third album is to make each song represent our sound alot more, with both melodic and hard-hitting parts, while still being unique in themselves. This defines us alot more, and the preproductions so far sounds killer to say the least. Also, we're happy to announce that Sworn is now endorsed by Engl Amps!"
Norwegian metallers Sworn have issued the following update about working on a new album:
"We'd like to inform you that we're currently working on material for our third album. Half of it is already complete, and it's enormous, to say the least! Our deadline is set to end of august, and our plans are to have the album recorded by the end of 2010.
"Some working titles are: 'The Silver Asylum,' 'Corridors of Dark Salvation,' 'The Keeper,' 'Mot Stupet' (Norwegian lyrics). Also, Sworn and Dag Dreggen Anderson (bass) have split ways, and we will do live shows with a session bass player until we find a suitable replacement. We want to thank Dreggen for his duties on the Bastards and Conquerors album, and wish him good luck with his other projects. Regarding live shows, we're working on a tour for the Bastards and Conquerors album, but nothing is certain on this matter yet."
