Esteemed death metal stalwarts, IMMOLATION, have entered Milbrook Sound Studios in New York with longtime producer Paul Orofino to begin recording their Nuclear Blast debut and eighth album over all. The band posted the following update on the new album and recording:
“Today we have begun the recording process for our 8th full length release. Once again we have entered Millbrook Sound Studios in upstate Millbrook, New York and will start tracking with Paul Orofino tomorrow. This will be our 6th time visiting Millbrook Studios and we are really looking forward to the whole process.
“The new album will contain 10 songs of the strongest material we have ever written. The new material is more violent and aggressive, with fast sections that take us to a new level of speed and intensity, while complementing the dark and sullen heavier moments. There are plenty of miserable and militant movements to please the die hard and new IMMOLATION fans alike.
“We’ve spent the past two months rehearsing and fine tuning the songs so that all ten are stand-outs and create a complete listening experience. Needless to say, we are all very pleased and enthusiastic about the new material and are anxious to debut it to the fans.
“Following the recording process here in Millbrook, we have decided to try something new for the mixing process, so we have enlisted the talents of Zack Ohren (DECREPIT BIRTH, SUFFOCATION, ALL SHALL PERISH). We are confident he will do an excellent job in giving a fresh new life to the IMMOLATION sound.
“We are still in the process of getting ideas together for the album’s concept and cover art, but these final details will be worked out in the near future.”
After the new year, IMMOLATION will be touring in direct support of NILE on the Those Whom the Gods Detest Tour. Also on the tour are KRISIUN, ABIGAIL WILLIAMS, and DREAMING DEAD. Tour dates below.
