Finland’s progressive death metal act Barren Earth has entered Helsinki’s Sonic Pump Studios to record the follow-up to last year’s debut album, "Curse of the Red River" (reviewed here).

The band has written 12 new songs, and is currently laying them down with engineer/co-producer Jukka Varmo. Dan Swanö (Katatonia/Opeth) will once again be at the mixing helm. A video report from the studio is also available here. Barren Earth has now commented on the new album:

"The tracks mainly continue in the vein of the previous record, having perhaps even more 70’s prog influences, but maintaining the basic heaviness and brutality one has come to associate with Barren Earth. The album is due for release in autumn 2011 on Peaceville Records, and the artwork will be made by Paul Romano (Mastodon, etc.). Studio reports will be updated at Barren Earth's Facebook page which you can follow here."
