Costa Rica-based melodic metal band SIGHT OF EMPTINESS has finished recording its as-yet-untitled third album, to be released later this year. The CD was recorded at SoloHits Studios in San José, Costa Rica with 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 byThomas Johansson at Panic Room Studios in Skara, Sweden.

SIGHT OF EMPTINESS’ new CD will feature guest appearances by the following 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 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.”

Singer Whitfield Crane (UGLY KID JOE, ANOTHER ANIMAL, LIFE OF AGONY) will join the Costa Rican metal band SIGHT OF EMPTINESS for a very special night of covers. On July 10 at 8 p.m. at Jazz Cafe in Escazu, Costa Rica, the crowd will be treated to renditions of songs in tribute to Ronnie James Dio (HEAVEN & HELL, DIO, BLACK SABBATH,RAINBOW), Peter Steele (TYPE O NEGATIVE) and Paul Gray(SLIPKNOT), with Crane taking the mic for the Dio portion of the show. “I have been in Costa Rica for the past few months, when I went to the Megadeth show I saw Sight Of Emptiness open the show. Those guys just killed on stage and one thing lead to another. I am excited to rock the mic, Costa Rican style”, said Whitfield Crane about the show.

When asked about the current status of UGLY KID JOE, Crane said, “It’s ON — UGLY KID JOE is back. We are talking about doing shows next year, in addition to studio time. I’m stoked”

SIGHT OF EMPTINESS supported MEGADETH on May 9 at Autodromo La Guacima in San Jose, Costa Rica in front of 14000 people. SIGHT OF EMPTINESS also won the Award of “Best Metal Album” for their second Independent record: “Absolution of Humanity” 2010, at the ACAM AWARDS in Costa Rica = ASCAP in the USA.

They also shared stages with such bands as LACUNA COIL, IN FLAMES, ARCH ENEMY, TESTAMENT, FIREWIND and SABBAT (featuring Andy Sneap, producer of the latest MEGADETH album, “Endgame”).
