The Danish Metal Machine MNEMIC have begun recording their as-yet-untitled third album for Nuclear Blast Records in Los Angeles. Production is being handled by FEAR FACTORY guitarist, Christian Olde Wolbers, as well as new addition Warren Riker (DOWN, CATHEDRAL, THE FUGEES) who began tracking the band at Track Record Studios (KISS, MEGADETH, AEROSMITH) this past weekend. The band had this to say, “Finally after two weeks of rehearsals and pre-production we’ve started tracking the drums with Warren Riker and Christian Olde Wolbers in North Hollywood. We’ve been really busy working on 13 brand new songs that kick ass, and along with new singer Guillaume Bideau (ex-SCARVE) this marks a new era for the band. Things are sounding great and we are just getting started!”
This marks the first time that MNEMIC have done pre-production and recording in America and the second production project of Olde Wolbers for Nuclear Blast as he recently turned the knobs for THREAT SIGNA:S‘s debut Under Reprisal (due out August 22nd in North America). He commented recently, “I’m honored to get the opportunity to work with MNEMIC, and I am actually a fan of the band.”
The follow-up to 2004’s The Audio Injected Soul, MNEMIC‘s new album is due out in early 2007.
