“We had some good elements that we have added in this album: Since we three are singers, we had some very special voices and harmonies that turned out really cool, very Pink Floydish or Beatle-ish, but into a metal thing!”, tells Marcos. “But still with a lot of kick ass! Don’t think anything wrong, it doesn’t sound like Beatles, it’s really kick ass stuff!“, continues Peavy.
“Seasons Of The Black” was recorded in February/March 2017 at Megafon Studios (Burscheid, Germany) and at Soundchaser Studios (Zandhoven, Belgium). Its production was handled by RAGE, whilst the renowned Dan Swanö (MARDUK, OPETH, KATATONIA) took care of mix and mastering at Unisound Studios (Grefrath, Germany).
