COR SCORPII - Announce Details About Forthcoming Sophomore Album

  • Print

Fans of the Norwegian extreme melodic metal in general, and of Cor Scorpii in particular, have waited eight long years for the follow up to the band's debut album, Monument, and now, at last, the long wait is over with the band set to release their sophomore full-length titled Ruin on the 15th June on Dark Essence Records.
The result of a lengthy, and at times arduous, song writing process, Ruin draws its inspiration from classical music, folk melodies and the soundscapes of Nordic extreme metal. Revealing the hidden talents that can be found amongst its members, Cor Scorpii have on Ruin made use of instruments that are unusual for a metal band, such as the accordion and mandolin.
Recorded at various locations over a period of three years, Ruin was mixed by Børge Finstad in his Toproom Studio, and mastered by Tom Kvålsvoll at his Kvalsonic Lab. Seamlessly blending epic, soaring melodies, with the harshness of extreme metal, Ruin includes  guest appearances by the classical singer Annika Beinnes, as well as Mats Lerberg (I Swear Damnation, ex-Funeral) who lend their considerable vocal talents to three tracks each. With artwork by Novans V. Adikresna of the Marnov Studio, tracklisting on Ruin is as listed below. Link
