Elvenking Announces Guest Musicians For New Album

Italy's Elvenking has issued the following update about releasing a new album and recruiting guest musicians:

"This summer is magical boys and girls! We hope you are already enjoying your summer holidays or that you planning your trips and your relax time.

"As you know the new Elvenking album is ready and it will be hopefully released inSeptember 2012. We will inform you about the final release date as soon as we'll have more news about it. We'll try to give you some updates about the new album every week. In the meantime we are preparing things around the new video clip shooting and we will film it while you'll have a swim at your favourite pool or a good hot night at the seaside!

"You already know that the Mountain King himself, Mr. Jon Oliva, will be guest on the new album leading his voice on two tracks. But we have also other great guest performance on the album. Wintersun’s guitarist Teemu Mäntysaari laid down an Incredible guitar solo on a track called 'Walking Dead' (oh yes, this is the very first new title revealed! …cool as the tv series at least!!). You will hear it.

"Also Maurizio Cardullo from our dear fellows Folkstone has taken care of all the folk instruments in the album. So you will hear a lot of bagpipes, tin whistles, low whistlesthrough the songs. What do you think about that?And last but not least the gorgeous and amazing Finnish singer Netta Dahlberg performed some female vocals. If you have the lastAmorphis album, well she IS that amazing voice!

"Something else? Oh yes, you will hear some amazing choirs performed by a nice fellowship of people: our friend, Mr. Alessandro Conti (yes, exactly him, new Rhapsody’s singer and Trick or Treat frontman), Marco Sandron (yes! new Eden's Curse singer and also Pathosray lead vocalist), Giordana Gisamano, great voice in Insanity Fair and the great addition of our two Heroes (who are not dead...not yet at least :P) Damna and Aydan. A nice colorful group, isn’t it?

"We are also preparing some cool stuff for you guys including a brand new lyric video and some clips around the making of the album and other nice and curious features!

"Prepare yourself...a new era is beginning!"
