Danish thrashers ESSENCE have entered Abyss Studio with producer Peter Tägtgren (MARDUK, IMMORTAL, DIMMU BORGIR, AMON AMARTH, CHILDREN OF BODOM) to begin recording their sophomore album, to be released later in the year through an as-yet-undetermined record label.
Commented ESSENCE: “It is a great honor for us to work with Peter. It was natural for us to pick Peter as producer for this album, as his approach to both music and sound fits perfectly with our new material. We can’t wait to hear the final result and to show all you guys out there how ESSENCE anno 2012 sounds like. Even though we have just started the recording, it is clear to us that the result will be better than we ever could imagine!”
ESSENCE‘s debut album, “Lost In Violence”, was released in February 2011 via Belgium’s Ultimhate Records. The CD was recorded at Medley Studios (ARTILLERY, PRINCE, RADIOHEAD, MARY J. BLIGE, KELLY CLARKSON, THE CARDIGANS) in Copenhagen and was produced and mixed by Søren Andersen (Glenn Hughes, Dave Mustaine, Mike Tramp).
