Barren Earth’s breakout record Curse of the Red River made some head movement last year with their brand of melodic death metal. Apparently the group has entered Helsinki’s Sonic Pump Studios to record the follow-up. Barren Earth has written 12 new songs, and is currently laying them down with engineer/co-producer Jukka Varmo. Dan Swanö (Katatonia/Opeth) will once again be at the mixing helm. The sophomore album is due for release in autumn 2011 on Peaceville Records.
And in other news, the group has released a “silly” teaser trailer for our enjoyment. Yaaaaaaay!
