Norwegian gothic metallers TRAIL OF TEARS entered Sound Suite Studio in Marseille, France earlier this month with producer Terje Refsnesto begin recording their as-yet-untitled seventh album. An early 2012 release is expected.
A short video clip from the studio — filmed on September 6 — can be seen below.
TRAIL OF TEARS last year parted ways with guitarist Pål Olsen and opted to carry on as a five-piece.
TRAIL OF TEARS‘s sixth album, “Bloodstained Endurance”, was recorded and mixed over a six-week period at Sound Suite Studio in Marseille, France with producer Terje Refsnes. Mastering duties were handled by Mika Jussila at Finnvox Studios in Finland. The cover artwork for the album was designed by acclaimed artist Travis Smith (AMORPHIS, OPETH, NEVERMORE).
In 2007, TRAIL OF TEARS was rejoined by vocalist Cathrine Paulsen, who sang on the group’s 2002 album, “A New Dimension of Might”.
