Stefan Weinerhall, Gitarrist der schwedischen Metaller von FALCONER gab kürzlich folgendes bekannt:
“Recording time is coming up. Most songs for the next FALCONER album are written and rehearsed soon as the studio time is drawing nearer, starting to feel a bit stressed! The album will be mixed in the end of January so I’d guess we’re up for a late spring release.
The title of the new album will be ‘Armod’ and will be completely sung in Swedish except for the bonus tracks that will simply be English versions of the best (according to us) new songs.
This time we have concentrated on the traditional folk side of our music including more traditional folk songs (the majority of the material is still our own), more fiddles and flutes. Be calm, the horrid sound of accordions will firmly be left behind!
This is a way to finally devoting an entire album to the influences and getting that out of our system, so to speak, and to do the thing some have asked for during ten years. This is not the new direction of us but just the sound of THIS album.
We are prepared for nagging about lack of speed and the full use of the Swedish language and, of course, the cynical opinions that we lack inspiration and thus use more traditional folk songs. The next time we’ll take another step; I wonder what that can be.”
‘Among Beggars And Thieves’, die letzte Platte der Band, erschien im August 2008 via Metal Blade Records. Aufgenommen wurde sie in Andy La Rocques (KING DIAMOND) Sonic Train Studio in Varberg, Schweden.
