Zierler Projects Issues New Album Update

Mastermind Finn Zierler has posted an update online about the forthcoming Zierler Projects album, revealing that Daniel Bergstrand will be handling mixing duties on "Matrix I." Finn comments:

"I'm very excited to announce that we are entering the last stages of finishing the album. Currently working in 5 different studios. Acclaimed producer and a dear friend of mine, Jacob Hansen, is working on pre-drum work, his assistant in Russia on mappings, acclaimed producer Daniel Bergstrand, is preparing the mix sessions and has started on the drums, his assistant Rickard Sporrong is working on audio details and I'm gathering thousand and thousand of tracks doing the final setups, working on audio and doing the last minor adjustments. I'll later be flying to Sweden to work with Daniel Bergstrand who will be mixing the album. I'm absolutely thrilled about this - Daniel has been one of my personal fave producers for years.

"This album is by far the most time consuming, complex and detail oriented album I've ever worked on. I've tried to create the best working conditions for everyone involved, taking the time it needs to record this beast out of repect for the musicians, the compositions and the music itself. While recording it I've put a lot of weight on not taking the easy way out, not to use technology to do edits to save time or whatever.

"The musicians involved are all so talented - no cheats, no copy/paste is done on this album. Everything on the album is played by us humans and recorded as organic as possible. I'm putting a lot of effort into not losing this when entering these last stages. Personally, I'm sick of listening to 'plastic' albums that sounds more like machines than humans. Sadly, a lot of metal has fallen into this hole in recent years. Metal is one of the few genres where the musicians can actually play - personally I think it is something we should be proud of and something we should nourish in metal."

Finn is also working with London-based graphic artist Rob Sindermann once again, whose stunning visuals will be gracing the CD packaging.

Zierler Projects is a Transatlantic progressive metal supergroup consisting of Finn Zierler (Beyond Twilight) on keyboards, Bobby Jarzombek (Fates Warning, Arch/Matheos) on drums, Per Nilsson (Scar Symmetry) on guitars and bass, Kelly Sundown Carpenter (Beyond Twilight, Eypsode) on lead vocals, and Truls Haugen (Circus Maximus, Insense) on vocals and bass.
