After keeping fans waiting for four years, Norwegian Black Folk Metallers COR SCORPII have set the date of the 17th July on which to begin recording their sophomore full-length album.  As with their previous release “Monument” the album will be recorded and mixed by Børge Finstad at his Toproom Studio (MAYHEM, BORKNAGAR, VINTERSORG, TRISTANIA, ARCTURUS etc).

So far the band have released very little information about the album, which has a working title of “Ruin”, other than to say that they expect to have it finished by the autumn of this year and that it will be released on Dark Essence Records.  They have, however, posted a pre-production teaser of what will eventually turn into a 9 -10 minute epic track, as an indication on what fans can expect.  The teaser can be heard below and on the band’s official YouTube channel at http://youtu.be/T1bDm6I6lVw

 

COR SCORPII was formed in 2004 by WINDIR/ULCUS keyboard player Gaute Refsnes following the tragic death of WINDIR’s Terje “Valfar” Bakken.  With a lineup that includes Thomas Øvstedal on vocals, Gaute Refsnes on keyboards, Erlend Nybøon lead guitars, Rune Sjøthun on rhythm guitars, Inge Jonny Lomheim on bass and Ole “Vargon” Nordsve on drums, COR SCORPII’s music blends melody with aggression, and black metal vocals with strong folk metal feel that has made the Bergen band so popular with fans of the extreme genres.

It has just been confirmed that COR SCORPII will be joining DARK ESSENCE RECORDS label-mates TAAKE at next year’s Karmøygeddon Metal Festival, and more  information about COR SCORPII can be found on the band’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/officialcorscorpii
