Swedish melodic death metal outfit DARK TRANQUILLITY has commenced the recording process for their upcoming album at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden
Yesterday (Thursday, October 19), DARK TRANQULLITY posted a video of drummer Joakim Strandberg Nilsson laying down tracks for the follow-up to 2020’s “Moment”LP. The post included the following caption: “It has begun! This week officially marks the start of the recording process for the next D.T. album. Have a quick look at Joakim laying down the rhythm foundation at Fascination Street Studios. Stay tuned for more info!”
DARK TRANQUILLITY‘s previous record, “Moment,” arrived in November 2020 and was recorded at Nacksving Studios and Rogue Music under the guidance of Martin Brändström. It was then meticulously mixed and mastered by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios.
In a noteworthy development this July, guitarist Christopher Amott announced his departure from DARK TRANQUILLITY. He took the opportunity to emphasize that there was absolutely no discord between himself and the other members of the band. Instead, he explained that it was simply “time” for him to shift his focus towards some new musical endeavors he felt immensely proud of. Christopher Amott, aged 45, who originally co-founded ARCH ENEMY alongside his brother Michael Amott, had officially joined DARK TRANQUILLITY in 2020, after serving as a part of their touring lineup since 2017.
DARK TRANQUILLITY issued the following statement regarding Amott‘s departure: “We are sad to announce that Chris Amott is leaving the band to pursue his own musical path. It has been an honor and a pleasure to play with him and we are parting amicably. To fill in for him in the near future we will have the awesome shredder Joey Concepcion joining us for the rest of the summer.
“Our mission stays the same – to explore this melancholy that neighbours to rage. A path forged by all members of DARK TRANQUILLITY – past and present. There may be some new faces on stage but in our extended family, much is the same. Niklas Sundin is still setting our visual tonality and Martin Henriksson is still our manager.
“Our next task will be to record our 13th album this fall. We are super excited about the material and can’t wait to bring it to you.”
It has begun! This week officially marks the start of the recording process for the next D.T. album. Have a quick look at Joakim laying down the rhythm foundation at Fascination Street Studios. Stay tuned for more info!— Dark Tranquillity (@dtofficial) October 19, 2023
