After releasing their debut album “Vine” outside of Finland Century Media Records signed the Finnish atmospheric metal band THE MAN-EATING TREE that is featuring Vesa Ranta (formerly Sentenced) and Janne Markus (ex-Poisonblack) worldwide. Yet again THE MAN-EATING TREE have recorded their upcoming album “Harvest” with Hiili Hiilesmaa, but with some extra force injected by their additional guitarist Antti Karhu. The exact release date of “Harvest” is yet to be scheduled.
Tuomas Tuominen (vocals, lyrics):
The summer is gone. I just sat down at the side of a field. Watched, for one fleeting moment, a man reap the crop had sown in the Spring, grown during the Summer. Much in a similar timeline as his fields have turned golden, we recorded our sophomore album. From the endless summer sun of the North, we hippies evacuated into the studio, to capture our next stereo recording. In studio, we were already accompanied by Antti Karhu. Some of you already got the chance to meet him briefly on our late summer shows. The fine young man was welcomed to our line-up during the Spring to play some mean guitar. He brings a style of playing that ranges through the far reaches of our music with ease. Soulful in one moment, packing all the needed punch in the next. The new recording and the strengthened line-up are not the only things that have come to a completion during the past few months. The album will be released worldwide through Century Media Records, with whom we inked a record deal in the summer. Good to work with the Century Media people, the warmth and dedication in their work matches that of ours. More news on the album, live dates and other actual issues will follow shortly. In the meantime, stop for a moment to enjoy what the harvest season brings you.
