ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW Completes Recording New Single

Finnish melodic death metal band ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW has finished recording a new single and is now waiting for it to be mixed and mastered. According to the band, "The name of the single will be revealed later as well as the names of the songs on it. Let's just say we haven't recorded any cover songs this year and probably won't be recording any of those next year either."

ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW recently inked a new deal with the Finnish label KHY Suomen Musiikki Oy. The group is currently recording its sixth album, which is tentatively expected in April 2009. As was the case with the band's previous five LPs, the forthcoming effort is being recorded at Tico-Tico Studio in Kemi, Finland. The as-yet-untitled CD has already been licenced to Massacre Records (which will be release the album in Europe excluding Finland) and Marquee/Avalon (which will make the record available in Asia).

ETERNAL TEARS OF SORROW fans will get a chance to hear some of the band's new material during the group's appearance at the Finnish Metal Expo in Helsinki in February 2009.
