Spanish heavy metallers KILMARA have entered the ROLAND GRAPOW (Masterplan and Ex-Helloween) studios in Slovakia to begin recording their third album “LOVE SONGS AND OTHER NIGHTMARES” for an early 2013 release.
The band has to say: “After looking into some alternatives with Rising Records to record the new CD we decided for Roland as he always showed much interest and enthusiasm to work with KILMARA. The plan was to start recording early during summer 2012 but between Roland preparing his new MASTERPLAN album and his work with Saratoga, his agenda was fully booked until the end of summer.”
KILMARA is: Christian Wolfgang Kohl (vocals), Jonathan Portillo (guitar), Enrique Torres (guitar), Javier Morillo (drums), Raul Ruiz (bass guitar)
Guests on the new album are DAVE IMBERNÖN from ENUMA ELISH on keyboards and KALEB from young Spanish pagan death metal band DRAKUM on the violin.
“LOVE SONGS AND OTHER NIGHTMARES” will probably be the heaviest KILMARA album up to date and finally make the breakthrough on European and International level.
KILMARA presented one of it’s new songs live on stage during Barcelona’s Harley Days in July. The song called “ALPHA” was written to support KILMARA’s favorite Beer Brewery. The fan made video can be streamed below:
In 2007 KILMARA records its first studio album “Hunting Dreams”. With view on the international music market the band makes the decision to write lyrics in English only. The debut album is quite successful and receives very good magazine and web reviews in Spain. An extended tour follows to present the album in over 40 shows before the band begins to work on new material for the upcoming album. In 2009 KILMARA records its new CD “Don’t fear the Wolf” in Slovakian Grapow Studios with Roland Grapow (Masterplan and Ex-Helloween) as producer. With a new powerful sound and carefully crafted songs KILMARA gets signed by the Spanish record label MALDITO RECORDS where the new album “Don’t fear the wolf” gets released in May 2010. The new CD receives excellent critics in Spain and Europe. During July and August 2010 “Don’t fear the wolf” enters the Spanish Rock & Metal charts on position 20. In November 2010 KILMARA signs with the UK label RISING RECORDS which re-releases “Don”t fear the wolf” worldwide in February 2011.
After nearly 2 years of presenting “Don’t fear the wolf” live KILMARA will enter the studio of Roland Grapow again to record the new album called “Love songs and other Nightmares”. Studio time is scheduled and the Drum recording starts on September 24.
