Dark Phoenix Rising

I. Dead Trees
II. Bow Down
III. The Ember of the End
IV. From the Ashes
V. Dark Phoenix Rising

This recording session was done in June and mixed in July 2015. From the beginning it was only planned to record two songs (“Dead Trees” and “The Ember of the End”) but when we started to rehearse/recording, we felt to revisit an previously recorded song “Bow Down” that got a little more “epic” ending in this version. At the end of the recording blew the creative winds so we wrote and recorded two more songs (“From the Ashes” and “Dark Phoenix Rising”). To tie together the musical heavy adventure with the other three songs.

The recording is as previously recordings done under simple conditions with only a guitar, bass, drums and vocals. No frills or hocus pocus in the mix.
Unfortunately, Daniel Moilanen could not participate during the recording because of the missions with Katatonia. But we used our close friend Oldfor Suns who temporarily took care of the drumming.

Recorded in June 2015. Mixed and mastered by Johan Bäckman in July 2015.
Produced by Nicklas Rudolfsson and Johan Bäckman.
Music and lyrics by Nicklas Rudolfsson.
