THE CHANT To Release 'New Reality' Single In January

Finnish melancholic metallers THE CHANT recently entered the studio with producer Ville Sorvali (MOONSORROW) to begin recording their second album, tentatively titled "This Is The World We Know", for an early 2010 release via Full Metal Music. The first single from the CD, "New Reality", will be made available in January.

The first two in a series of video clips featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the recording sessions for the new album can be viewed below.

A studio diary is available at this location.

THE CHANT's debut album, "Ghostlines", was released in February 2008 the U.K. and Ireland via Shadow World Records / Plastic Head Distribution. "Ghostlines" was described as "a 54-minute emotionally charged rollercoaster ride with morose atmospheres, beautiful melodies and harmonies in the course of KATATONIA, ANATHEMA and HIM."

"Ghostlines" was produced by the MOONSORROW vocalist-bassist Ville Sorvali, and was mastered by Mikko Herranen of Rust and Misery Inc.. The cover booklet was shot by Ville Juurikkala (NIGHTWISH, HIM, AMORPHIS), who was named the "Best Rock Photographer" by the immensely popular City magazine.
