Folk/Power Metal band Elvenking have announced that they will be entering the studio soon to start the production of their fourth album.
In November the band will enter Gernhart studios in Germany to start recording the drums, before returning to Italy and entering Sherpa studios to complete all the rest of the recording. Nino Laurenne of Sonic Pump studios will be in Italy to set some sounds together with the band and supervise the production. The album will be mastered by Mika Jussila at Finnvox.

The cover artwork will be done by Gyula Havancsak, who is the same artist that created the artwork for Elvenking's previous album 'The Winter Wake'. The lyrical theme hasn't been revealed as yet, but the band says that "it's gonna be the most challenging thing we've ever done lyrically". The band has said that the album is expected to be ready by March/April 2007 and it should be released around September next year. Further details about the album are said to be announced soon.

Here is a comment by Elvenking guitarist Aydan: "As usual our new album will be pretty different from all our previous works. It's something vital for us, we cannot copy ourselves, what we have done in the past is still there and we need to look ahead. The new material is simply thrilling us out, we can't wait to put it on cd!".

The last live gigs before starting the recordings are:

October 27th, Velvet Rock Club, Gias di Aviano (PN), Italy (+Tystnaden)
November 4th, Ragnarock festival, Perth, Scotland (w/ Gamma Ray, Doro, Dream Evil, )

Wow, didn't see that coming. I hope this rush won't be reflected in their sound, though.
