The Man-Eating Tree - New Project Of Ex-Sentenced Drummer

The Man-Eating Tree, the new atmospheric metal band featuring ex-Sentenced drummer Vesa Ranta alongside current/former members of Poisonblack, Reflexion and Embraze, have entered Mastervox Studio in Oulu, Finland to begin recording its debut album with producer Hiili Hiilesmaa (Him, Sentenced, Amorphis).

According to the group's official bio, The Man-Eating Tree was formed when "Vesa Ranta, having taken a break from music after Sentenced, began to overcome his post-Sentenced battle fatigue and lack of musical motivation. The idea of a new band - or bands - was eventually brainstormed over a period of time between Vesa and his friends, including gentlemen Miika Tenkula, Aaron Rantonen, Janne Markus (guitar, Poisonblack) and Mikko Uusimaa. Plans were made reality in 2009; the outfit was completed by the addition of Tuomas Tuominen (Fall Of The Leafe) as a vocalist and Heidi Määttä (Embraze) as a keyboard player. First demo recordings were made in the spring and summer of 2009.

Vocalist Tuomas Tuominen states: "Most of the instrument tracks will be recorded here in wintry Oulu. I will lay down the vocals in the later half of the month there in the South."

Songtitles set to appear on the CD include:

* Lathing A Good Man
* Contractor
* King Of July In The Kingdom Of Winter
* The Eastern Part Of Sleep
* Free Of Shadows
* The Forecast
* Out Of The Wind
* The Forge Of Hope
* Of Birth And Passing

Anything related to Sentenced & Poisonblack is worth checking!
You who will come to the surface
From the flood that's overwhelmed us and drowned us all
Must think, when you speak of our weakness in times of darkness
That you've not had to face

Oh, this should be worth the wait! And that's a good band name, indeed.

Mouth-watering news This project definitely needs my attention, hoping it will also deserve my attention.
Laugh and the world laughs with you. Weep and you weep alone.
