FREYA: Second ‘Paragon Of The Crucible’ Studio Webisode

FREYA, the Syracuse, New York-based band featuring EARTH CRISIS frontman Karl Buechner, recently entered More Sound Studios with producer Jason “Jocko” Randall (THE RED DEATH, IF HOPE DIES) to begin recording its new album, “Paragon Of The Crucible”, for an early 2012 release. The follow-up to 2010’s “All Hail The End” will feature lyrics “about how after the cataclysm, people will create new mythologies to explain the post-apocalyptic landscape, dealing a lot with mans ability to live in harmony with the Earth and each other,” according to a press release. The CD cover arwork will be handled by the group’s guitarist Brendon Flynn.

The second in a series of webisodes featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions for the new album can be seen below.

A pre-production/demo version of the new FREYA song “The Adversary” can be streamed on the band’s Facebook page.
