Check out the first webisode from Sight of Emptiness New Album – Studio Report #1.
Costa Rica-based melodic metal band SIGHT OF EMPTINESS have finished recording their third and it’s as-yet-untitled new album, to be released later this year. The CD was recorded at SoloHits Studios in San José, Costa Rica by Swedish Producer Thomas “Plec” Johansson (Scar Symmetry, Watain, Eskimo Callboy, Solution .45, Miseration), who traveled all the way to Costa Rica to work with the band closely for about 22 days. The mixing and mastering duties are being handled by Thomas Johansson at Panic Room Studios in Skara, Sweden.
The album will feature guest appearances by the following top musicians: Glen Drover (King Diamond & Megadeth), Christian Älvestam (Scar Symmetry, Miseration, Solution .45), Whitfield Crane (Ugly Kid Joe, Another Animal), Ralph Santolla (Deicide, Iced Earth, Obituary), Ole Halvard Sveen (Extol, Mantric, Lengsel) and last but not least, one that comes as a shocking but pleasant surprise, no other than the Minister of Culture of Costa Rica; Manuel Obregón who plays the Marimba and the acoustic piano.
Commented Producer Thomas “Plec” Johansson: Coming to Costa Rica to work with Sight of Emptiness has been a great experience. Such dedication and love for music as these guys show is a rare commodity to come across these days and that’s probably why we got along so well and managed to dish out some kick ass tracks. The new album will be something to look forward to, creating a blend of dark, heavy, energetic and melodic atmospheres that are ready to take the stage.
