Finnish metallers AMORAL will enter Sound Supreme Studios in Hämeenlinna, Finland on January 30 to begin recording their fifth album for a late spring release. Guitarist Ben Varon recently described the band’s new material as “all over the place style-wise, from the chillest acoustic stuff to fast death metal, with lots of solid, hard-rockin’ metal in between.”
In other news, AMORAL will play a one-off show at Nosturi in Helsinki on January 15 as a tribute to the band’s late friend and lighting technician Lauri Mailasalo.
Commented the group: “Lauri passed away this year as a result of leukemia. Needless to say, the whole band was crushed by the news as Lauri had been part of the AMORAL crew almost since the very beginning. He will be deeply missed.”
