CD/DVD Releases: Cirrha Niva Enter Studio To Record Next Album

Posted on Wednesday, June 18 @ 23:26:18 UTC by nightowl

Dutch progressive metalband Cirrha Niva have entered the studio to record their new album. After an intense process of exploring new directions in song writing and band line up, Cirrha Niva is ready to record a new collection of fine progressive metal songs. It will be the first release for the band with new vocalist Michel LeGrand. The band is very confident about Michel's voice and influences, which has lifted the band's sounds to a complete higher level.

The upcoming yet untitled album will become Cirrha Niva's first new release after their 2001 rock opera album Liaison De La Morte (distributed by Suburban Records (EU) & The End Records (USA). The band has put their earlier theatrical en gothic influences aside in order to develop into a modern style and sound. In the new songs influences and cross references can be made with names like Faith no More, Opeth, Psychotic Waltz, Meshuggah or even the Bee Gees to the Banshees....

Raw melancholic metal riffs, groovy drums and dark grunts will be enlightened with the powerful clean sometimes almost poppy and soulful, lead vocals of Michel LeGrand. Plural chorus lines by the other band members and guest vocalists will complete a wide range of sound. Demo outtakes of 2 new songs can already be found on www.myspace.com/cirrhaniva

The complete album will be recorded & produced under the experienced guidance of producers Jochem Jacobs and Bouke Visser at Split Second Sound Studio (Textures, Autumn). Excess Recording Studio (Ayreon, After Forever, Gorefest) is chosen for capturing drums and bass guitar.

Seven songs will be part of the yet untitled album:
(In no particular order)

1) Framed
2) Self Chosen 3) Spring Before Winter
4) Running From The Source
5) Golan Heights
6) The Fooling
7) Dreamon

Cirrha Niva in 2008 is formed by Michel LeGrand (vocals), Rob Willemse (guitars, backing vocals), Carlo Heefer (guitars, backing vocals), Dani?l Huijben (bass guitar, backing vocals) and Tommy White (drums).
