Swedish death/black metallers ZONARIA have completed work on their long-awaited third album for an early 2012 release. The CD was recorded in part at Abyss studio in Sweden with producer Jonas Kjellgren (SCAR SYMMETRY, SONIC SYNDICATE, HYPOCRISY, CENTINEX, CARNAL FORGE).
Comments bassist Max Malmer: “After recording for quite a long time, we are happy to be able to say that the final master of our third album is completed. A lot of meticulous work has been put into the songs, and because of that I believe that this is the best record that the band has ever produced so far! We want to specially thank Jonas Kjellgren, Per Nilsson and Ronnie Björnström for their help with production and mixing of the album.”
ZONARIA vocalist Simon Berglund previously stated about the upcoming CD: “I’m stoked about going into the studio with Jonas. He did an amazing job on [ZONARIA‘s 2007 release] ‘Infamy And The Breed’ and has done some more incredible work with other bands. And not to mention recording in studio Abyss for the first time. Many of our all-time favorites have recorded in that studio and something magic always happens with the albums recorded there.”
ZONARIA‘s second full-length album, “The Cancer Empire”, was released in the U.S. in January 2009 via Century Media Records.
