They have also recruited producer Peter Tägtgren (Marduk, Amon Amarth), to work with them on the vocal and keyboard tracks for the effort. on the record.
"It's a nice change to the regular method where we lock ourselves up at a studio in the middle of the woods, usually also during the darkest time of the year," says guitarist/vocalist Alexi Laiho who is currently finishing up lyrics for the songs.
"Last night I finished my parts for the record," COB bassist Henkka Seppälä says. "We listened to all the songs and fixed what had to be fixed. So the bass tracks are locked in and so are the basic tracks for guitars, from both Roope and Alexi. And of course all drums were recorded first. Next in line are the guitar melodies and solos and then the keyboards and vocals. We are ahead of schedule and very happy to work here in Helsinki for the first time ever."
