God Dethroned frontman Henri Sattler has posted the following studio update:

"Rythm guitars, bass and lead guitars are all finished now. We took some time off from the studio to prepare some new things for us like different bass lines, harmonies and other stuff we haven't done like this before.

"Producer Joerg Uken learned some new things when it came down to my unconventional way of composing harmony lines.
One day we would record a melody line and the harmony just on the clicktrack to put it into the song later.
He goes 'this already sounds out of tune like this and we haven't even put it in the music yet.' I go 'just put it in the music Joerg.' It was nice to see this big questionmark above his head when we checked out the result. It sounded just great.
You can check that out yourself when our album comes out somewhere in April next year.

"Right now I'm finishing my lyrics and I already screamed my lungs out on a few tracks. Actually now I'm writing the lyrics for the album, I realise how intensely sick this war was. World War I had the biggest amounts of casualties during a single battle than any other war in history. I've been stunned quite a few times when I did research for my lyrics. Anyway, vocals should be ready by the end of next week.

"Then last but not least, we also started to work with keyboard player Danny Servaes again. He also played keyboards on the Grand Grimoire and Bloody Blasphemy albums. He just knows what to play to our songs and as promised our new album will go back to those old times, sound and song wise.

"God Dethroned entered Soundlodge Studios in Germany in October with producer Jörg Uken to begin recording its new album, Passiondale, for an April/May 2009 release via Metal Blade Records.

"Passiondale will be a concept album about World War I. Song-titles set to appear on the CD are as follows: 'Under A Darkening Sky', 'Behind Enemy Lines', 'Drowning in Mud', 'No-Man's Land', 'Passiondale', 'Poison Fog', 'Fallen Empires'
'Artifacts Of The Great War', 'No Survivors'."
