Dutch "atmospheric doomsters" OFFICIUM TRISTE entered the studio of the band's keyboardist, Martin Kwakernaak, in April to begin recording their fifth full-length album, tentatively titled MORS VIRI. The group states, "Everything has been recorded except for a small acoustic guitar piece in one of the songs that Martin will record shortly. Then Martin needs to do some editing on the recordings before it will all be sent off to Sweden where Ronnie Björnström of ENHANCED AUDIO PRODUCTIONS will mix and master the album. When that's done, we will start looking for the best possible label to release our fifth full-length recording. Some labels already showed interest, so we have high hopes we can come to a suitable agreement. Oh, and we can tell that the rough mixes already sound devastating!"
