Below Enters The Recording Studio

Epic doom metal band Below is currently holed up at Sonic Train Studios in Sweden with none other than Andy La Rocque (King Diamond) recording the band's Metal Blade Records debut.

Below hails from Sweden features influences from late Black Sabbath, Candlemass, and King Diamond, so going with Andy La Rocque as the producer was a clear choice for the group. The band offered up the following update:

"The progress of the recording of our debut album is going great and to have the opportunity to work with Andy La Rocque and Olof in Sonic Train Studios is amazing. We are currently finished recording the drums, the bass and the main guitars, and will start with the vocals this weekend. It sounds amazing already. It will be a truly epic album that will leave its mark in the history of doom."

Andy La Rocque added; "this is one of the heaviest bands I have worked with in the studio for a very long time, and the sounds so far is amazing! And always great to work with great musicians!"

Not much is known about the Swedish quintet, however they are working with Tobias Rosén - bass player of fellow Metal Blade Records artists Noctum - of Howlin' Owl Productions and a split 7" is in set to be released by Dark Descent Records with the doom act’s full-length being released via Metal Blade in 2014.
