To-Mera To Enter The Studio Soon, Issue Updated

Lee Barrett, bassist of British progressive metallers TO-MERA, has issued the following update:

"Well, we've got eight new songs in various states of completion. Titles confirmed so far include 'The Lie', 'A Sorrow To Kill', 'Merry-Go-Round' and 'Asylum'. Working titles (i.e. these could change!) include 'Temptation' and 'A Silver Key'.

"We will start the recording process on August 21st, again using Brett Caldas-Lima who produced the debut 'Transcendental'. Recording will take place near Oxford, England at a purpose built rehearsal studio (which is a bit better than the 'back room of a pub' like last time, hehe).

"The music's definitely going in a heavier direction. I know most bands say this, but since Tom [MacLean, guitar] is writing a majority of the stuff with his seven-string baritone tuned to F# it's definitely true. The songs are also going to be considerably more complex and roundly structured than before. All the parts that have become 'typically' TO-MERA are still going to be there only much more so in every possible way. There's more fluidity and emotional depth to the new songs. We're all more than happy with the way things are working out.

"You may be pleased to know the average song time is still hitting the seven-minute mark!”

TO-MERA's debut album, "Transcendental", was released in Europe on September 11 via Candlelight Records. A U.S. release followed in early October.
