Timo Tolkki, guitarist for the Hamburg, Germany-based power metal super group Symfonia, recently posted an online update regarding the recording of the band's debut album:
"Me and André [Matos, vocals] have been here in the middle of a Swedish forest for a week recording vocals.
"We rented a cabin which is at a top of a hill with an amazing view.
"If the drumming studio was in the middle of nowhere, then this one is in the middle of that nowhere.
"Things are going smooth; we got a great vocal sound.
