Australia’s melodic death metal heavyweights Universum will commence recording of the much anticipated follow-up to their debut album "Leto Destinatus" in the coming months.

Due for release in early 2010, the album, tentatively titled "Mortus Machina," will feature guest appearances from vocalist Christian Älvestam (ex-Scar Symmetry), guest guitar solos from Nightrage axe-men Marios Iliopoulos and Olof Mörck. Jens Bogren of Sweden’s Fascination Street Studios (Opeth, Soilwork, Amon Amarth, Katatonia) will once again be handling both mixing and mastering duties.

Universum’s lead guitarist Michael Soininen comments: "We are all excited by how the new album is developing so far and believe that the songs have a newfound depth, both musically and lyrically. The combination of the new material, the great guest musicians Christian, Marios and Olof, along with Jens’s mixing and mastering should result in a great album."
