Dragonland To Record Fifth Album

After five years, Dragonland's fifth album and follow up to 2006's "Astronomy" is nearing completion. The album is set to be recorded at Hansen Studios starting May 31st. Guitarist Olof Mörck commented on the twelve songs to be recorded:

"After 5 years of doing concepts, writing lyrics and composing we are seeing the light at the end of the proverbial tunnel! After 'Astronomy' we knew we needed to explore our music further not to risk becoming a band that releases music every year cast in the same mold, so the idea from the beginning was; what would it be like with a metal album based in fantasy that respects the literary genre, that actually tries to be mature and that enriches said fantasy world with inspiration from millenias of human mythology? To make a neoclassical album filled with overly bombastic clichés of steel clad warriors was out of the question - instead we explored the themes and sounds around various fantasy movies, new and old, and also countless computer RPG soundtracks to infuse the musical aspect with a genuine fantasy feel, and as previously stated heaps and stacks of tomes on every mythological tale from Gilgamesh to the Aeneid provided a genuine and credible backdrop to the story.

"The album is genuinely a concept album in every aspect, and we will collaborate with some truly gifted artists who are experts in this genre to bring our world to life visually - more on that soon.
Prepare yourself to be engulfed in a world of enchanting phantasy and songs of swirling magic later this year!"

Dragonland also recently signed to AFM Records. The statement from the band can be found here.
