Swedish Death Metallers PUTERAEON have parted ways with guitarist Hasse Sörensson (earlier Gustavsson) due to distance and lack of time. The band’s new guitarist Rune Foss was in the Swedish old school band EXEMPT and has since then played with AGGRO and RECLUSION. PUTERAEON will enter Studio Decay with producer D.K. (TAETRE) on July 26 to start the recordings for their upcoming Cyclone Empire release "The Esoteric Order". Jonas Lindblood had this to say about it: "The coverartwork is finished. We are just about getting ready to start recording the album as well. We will start recording drums in Studio Decay (with my friend D.K. from my other band TAETRE). Guitars, bass and vocals will be recorded in my home, and we’re planning on mixing and mastering the album at my friend Andy LaRoque’s (KING DIAMOND) studio Sonic Train. Date is not scheduled for SonicTrain yet. But I’ll get back to that." The band rehearsed the following songs for the album: ‘Storms Over Devil’s Reef’, ‘Coma’, ‘Whispers Of The Dead’, ‘Into The Deep’, ‘Re-Animation’, ‘Graverobber’, ‘The Plague’, ‘Castle Of Despair’, ‘The Extraordinary Work Of Herbert West’, ‘Experience Zombiefication’, ‘Dead Once More’, ‘The Innsmouth Insanity’ and ‘The End Of All’.
