MARIONETTE “Adding The Final Touches” to Third Full Length Album, Tour Diary Available

March 1st, 2011

Gothenburg Sweden based metal sextet MARIONETTE is currently in the process of mastering its yet to be titled third full length album at Masters of Audio Studio in Stockholm with Erik Broheden (RAMMSTEIN, TURBONEGRO, WITHIN TEMPTATION). Song titles set to appear on the CD include “Something Forgotten”, “Remember Your Name”, “Stand In Line” and “Lights Out”. Guitarist and backing vocalist Aron Parmerud commented:

 

“Our third album is currently being mastered at Masters of Audio Studio in Stockholm. These guys really know what they are doing, having worked with acts like RAMMSTEIN, TURBONEGRO, WITHIN TEMPTATION, and THE HELLACOPTERS among many others. We’re currently adding the final touches and making some final tweaks, but the light at the end of the tunnel is drawing very near! We worked really hard on all the compositions and we feel this is by far the most unique, dynamic, and mature record we’ve made. Here is a photo we took recently after completing the mixing at Pontus Hjelm’s PH Studio (Dead By April) in Gothenburg.”

 

MARIONETTE also recently completed European dates with the MURDERDOLLS – the band consisting of Joey Jordison (SLIPKNOT, ROB ZOMBIE) and Wednesday 13 – on the “Women and Children Last Tour”. Aron Parmerud commented:

 

“We recently completed our European dates with the MURDERDOLLS on their “Women And Children Last Tour.” It was great to get back down to play in Netherlands, Belgium, Switzerland, Germany and Italy again. We want to give a special thanks to all of our new fans in France as well. We’ll be back to see you soon! Big thanks to the MURDERDOLLS and their crew for helping us make this the best tour MARIONETTE has ever done. We have confirmed a date in Copenhagen on March 19th; we look forward to playing some new songs from our upcoming record that we haven’t tried yet live!”

MARIONETTE Signs Worldwide Publishing Deal

December 21st, 2010

MARIONETTE Signs Worldwide Publishing Deal With Warner/Chappell Music Scandinavia; In Mixing Mode; Video Diary From UK Headline Tour Available

Gothenburg Sweden based metal sextet MARIONETTE has signed a worldwide
publishing deal with Warner/Chappell Music Scandinavia (MESHUGGAH,
SABATON).  The band is currently mixing its as-of-yet-untitled third album
with Pontus Hjelm (DEAD BY APRIL) at Studio PH in Gothenburg Sweden.

Commented by Warner/Chappell Music Scandinavia’s Sanken Sandqvist:
“Sweden has continued to produce quality metal acts for over twenty years
now.  But MARIONETTE stands out above all for its focus on creating quality
metal that is innovative and unconventional, while putting on an excellent,
interactive, live show that is above and beyond what most bands with dudes
in jeans and t-shirts can do in concert.  We look forward to working with
these young guys from Gothenburg and helping them grow to new heights.”

Guitarist, backing vocalist, and founding member Aron Parmerud added:

“We are proud to announce that we have signed with Warner Chappell for
publishing our previous two albums and our future material.  This worldwide
deal will give us the support of one of the worlds largest publishing
companies, allowing us to focus on creating new and innovative music, which
has been our goal since 2005.

“Everyone at the MARIONETTE camp has been 100% focused on the mixing of
our third album, which is occurring (as I type) at Studio PH with Pontus
Hjelm.  This album is by far our most mature release to date; there are a
lot of new elements we are introducing to the MARIONETTE sound.  We expect
to turn a lot of heads with this release, and so far the response to the
new material we played live on our “The SlaughTour 2010” headline tour
of the UK and dates with DARK TRANQUILLITY earlier this year was received
extremely well both by MARIONETTE fans and people who have never seen or
heard us before.  After our album is mastered in January we look forward to
getting back on the road and sharing more new material with everyone who
sees us live next year.  Some titles of tracks on the album are
‘Something Forgotten’, ‘Remember Your Name’, ‘Stand In Line’
and ‘Lights Out’.”

MARIONETTE recently concluded its “The SlaughTour 2010” UK headline
tour and Scandinavian dates supporting Dark Tranquillity: the first tour
dates featuring new vocalist Alexander Andersson (ELDRIMNER) who joined the
band in the spring.  The second video diary from the headline tour can be

MARIONETTE Hits The Studio

August 11th, 2010

MARIONETTE Hits The Studio, Photos Available, More “The SlaughTour
2010” Headline U.K. And Scandinavian Shows with DARK TRANQUILLITY
Announced

Gothenburg Sweden based metal sextet MARIONETTE recently entered Studio
Fredman with producer Fredrik Nordström (IN FLAMES, BRING ME THE HORIZON)
to begin recording the band’s as of yet-untitled third album.  Guitarist
and backing vocalist Aron Parmerud made the following remarks regarding the
recording sessions and progress thus far:

“The recordings for our third album are underway! We spent a great deal
of time after our last UK/EU tour with BLESSTHEFALL working on new songs
and ended up with over 14 songs.  Last month Jimmy came in and nailed each
of the songs on drums and from there we began tracking the guitars and bass
all at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg.  Linus [Johansson, keyboards] and I
are working with the ambiance of the music and the keyboards.  Alexander
[Andersson, vocals] is currently working hard on the lyrics and vocal
lines. We’ve made some studio photos available on our Official Facebook
Page.*

“Fans of our Spite and more so Enemies albums will find some familiar
elements in our new songs.  Listeners will certainly hear contrasts between
brutal and beautiful, progressive and catchy, and up-tempo and down-tempo.
There are more elements that will be very new to our listeners.  We’re
eager to perform a few of these new songs live on our upcoming “The
SlaughTour 2010” dates in the UK and Denmark, and our recently confirmed
shows with fellow Gothenburgers DARK TRANQUILLITY in Sweden and Norway.  So
come out, see us live, and be the first to hear some new MARIONETTE songs
this October and November!”

In addition to MARIONETTE’s “The SlaughTour 2010” headline tour, the
band will join fellow Gothenburgers DARK TRANQUILLITY on the final Swedish
and Norwegian dates of the “Where Death is Most Alive Part II” Tour.
Joining MARIONETTE behind the drums for the upcoming treks will be Robert
Johansson (ELDRIMNER), replacing Jimmy Olausson who amicably left
MARIONETTE to pursue other musical endeavors.
