Recently we had our first guest musician in the studio - a vocalist from famous Ukrainian band I Miss My Death that will share a stage with Shape of Despair and Mourning Beloveth at international Ukraininan based festival Doom Over Kiev VI.
So, we've successfully passed another milestone with recording of our next album. Just like "A Key to Panngrieb" it will also contain cello! But in addition to that we've also decided to use stringed bass (contrabass), which makes it three bass instruments on the future album counting a more common bass guitar as well. Heavy stuff.
On 13.04.13 we have recorded all necessary instruments for our upcoming album. The honor to close our last recording session in the studio had been given to saxophone, which will be present in most of the songs. Anyway, we still need our album to be mixed and mastered, so stay tuned!
Today we are happy to show you the album art for our next album - "Thanathonaut". This time we have collaborated with Christophe Dessaigne, a French photographer and digital artist (http://www.midnight-artwork.com/).
His illustrations have been used for covers of many books including works of Stephen King, Agatha Christie, Margaret Atwood and other famous writers.
The face of the new Narrow House album (literally) will become an art called "The Miracle and the Sleeper", which carries the same mystic spirit as "A Key to Panngrieb". Get ready for a new journey to your inner world - it won't leave you indifferent.
Good news for fans of our first album! Petro Rogutskyi who was the part of original Narrow House lineup, will be a guest drummer for "Thanathonaut". Petro will show his workmanship in a new way, proving his talent once again.
The work on our new album is coming to an end, and it is time to reveal the tracklist for "Thanathonaut". To make this more entertaining we are presenting yet another work of Christophe Dessaigne we have used as album art:
