British progressive metallers THRESHOLD have entered Thin Ice Studios (DRAGONFORCE, PENDRAGON) in Surrey, England to begin recording their ninth album. “We’ve got about 75 minutes of music at the moment so there’s plenty to do,” said keyboard player Richard West, who is producing the CD alongside guitarist Karl Groom. “I’m very pleased with the way this album is coming together,” added Groom. “It is particularly good to see contributions in writing from more bandmembers.”
THRESHOLD‘s new album marks the return of the band’s original vocalist Damian Wilson (HEADSPACE, STAR ONE) who rejoined the group in 2007 following the departure of Andrew “Mac” McDermott, who sadly passed away in August.
THRESHOLD‘s previous studio album, “Dead Reckoning”, was released in 2007 and featured guest vocals by Dan Swanö (NIGHTINGALE, BLOODBATH). The CD entered the charts at position 64 in Germany, 95 in The Netherlands and 37 in the U.K. (rock chart).
THRESHOLD‘s new CD will be released in early 2012 through Nuclear Blast Records.
