HEAVENWOOD: Pre-Production Version Of New Song Available For Streaming

Portuguese metallers HEAVENWOOD are streaming a demo/pre-production version of a new song, "Fading Sun", on their MySpace page. The track will appear on the band's as-yet-untitled fourth studio album, which will feature contributions from Russian symphonic classical composer Dominic G. Joutsen. Other songtitles set to appear on the CD include "Goddess Presiding Over Solitude", "September Blood", "The Arcadia Order", "Leonor", "A Poem for Mathilde" and "Sudden Scars".

Commented HEAVENWOOD's guitarist/mastermind Ricardo Dias: "'Fading Sun' is an intense song, both musical and lyrically. It has great orchestral arragements by Dominic Joutsen that when added to the guitar riffs made everything become unique, in our opinion. It's a small token for our fans and a little example of how the new HEAVENWOOD album is coming. The release will be very sophisticated like something we've never done so far. We believe it's going to be our best album. We're working hard in order to make it happen."

HEAVENWOOD's "13th Moon" video can be viewed below. The clip was shot on May 30, 2009 in Braga, Portugal with the production team of Carlos Barros, Rui Correia and Ricardo Coutinho (NomedeCena.com), who are described as "young talented Portuguese video/filmmakers, designers and photographers." The video concept is based on the Zodiac signs.

"13th Moon" comes off HEAVENWOOD's third album, "Redemption", which was released in August 2008. The CD was mixed at Fascination Street Studios in Örebro, Sweden with Jens Bogren (OPETH, SOILWORK, AMON AMARTH). The initial recording sessions for the album took place at Ultrasound Studios with Daniel Cardoso and Ricardo Dias. The CD features guest appearances by ANNIHILATOR guitarist Jeff Waters (in the song "Bridge To Neverland"), FIREWIND guitarist Gus G. (in the track "One Step to Devotion") and singer Tijs Vanneste of the Belgian progressive metallers OCEANS OF SADNESS (in the song "Obsolete").
