British progressive metallers THRESHOLD have just completed pre-production and are currently at Thin Ice Studios (DRAGONFORCE, PENDRAGON) in Surrey, England recording drum tracks for their ninth studio album. "We've got about 75 minutes of music at the moment so there's plenty to do," states keyboard player Richard West, who is producing the album alongside guitarist Karl Groom, who adds: "I'm very pleased with the way this album is coming together. It is particularly good to see contributions in writing from more band members.”
The voice of original THRESHOLD vocalist Damian Wilson (HEADSPACE, STAR ONE) will be heard once again. He rejoined the band in 2007 following the departure of Andrew 'Mac' McDermott who sadly passed away on the 3rd of August 2011.
THRESHOLD's previous studio record Dead Reckoning was released in 2007 and featured guest vocals by Dan Swanö (NIGHTINGALE, BLOODBATH). The album entered the U.K. rock charts at #37, the German album chart at #64, and #95 in The Netherlands.
