Virus Issues Studio Recording Update

Norwegian metallers Virus have issued the following update about recording a new album:

"Hi all. Thought we'd give you a little heads-up on the studio progress. We have so far spent two days in Amper Tone, the same studio we used on The Black Flux, with Bård Ingebrigtsen once again at the rodder. We have recorded drums for 10 songs, and we have 3 more to go before Czral will start laying down his alien strings. He will spend about a week doing that before going with Plenum to Fias Co for bass implements. When the basic tracks are down, we will take a break from the studio for a while to get some words on paper and give those vocal chords a little exercise. Singing and mixing will then ensue, and the final result should be within your reach sometime in the autumn of 2010. Some song titles:

"The Continental Drift, Portrayed in the Sediments, Red Sand Choir, Long Distance Corridors, Chromium Sun, The Agent that Shapes the Desert, Parched Rapids, Dead Cities of Syria, The Fever Maze, Siberian Traps, Unheard of, Shutout (Walker Brothers cover)

"Everything is of course subject to change (only 5% of the lyrics actually exist at this point). There are in total 13 tracks, but we have not yet decided if we'll include them all on the album. We might leave one or two out, and use them as lp bonus tracks or something. Album title is not decided 100% yet, we have a working title that we might use if nothing better comes to us.

"We do have a pretty good idea about the visual concept though, all we need is an artist to realize it for us. Although only drums have been recorded so far, the sound of them bode very well for the final outcome. We have gone all Berlin '77 and placed several mics where they shouldn't be, in addition to on the actual drum kit, and the result is remarkable. Virus hereby declare a eternal ban of triggers. Seriously, who needs that crap?"
