Spanish thrash metallers ANGELUS APATRIDA have entered Ultrasound Studios in Moita, Portugal with producer Daniel Cardoso (ANATHEMA, ANNEKE VAN GIERSBERGEN) and sound engineer Hugo Andrade to begin recording their new album for an early 2012 release via Century Media Records. 10 new tracks and two bonus tracks are being recorded for the as-yet-untitled CD, including "It's Rising!", "You Are Next", "Blood On The Snow", "Violent Dawn" and "Still Corrupt". The artwork for the album will one again be created by Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes (ARCH ENEMY, FIREWIND, THE CROWN).
Commented ANGELUS APATRIDA guitarist/vocalist Guillermo Izquierdo: "We are working on an album that’s gonna be, without any shade of doubt, our most mature material. This time we have been able to do a pre-production of the whole record with Daniel Cardoso and it turned out to add a fresher taste in both the music and vocal melodies."
ANGELUS APATRIDA's last album, "Clockwork", landed at position No. 44 on the official Spanish chart.
According to a press release, "[ANGELUS APATRIDA] was born in the Spanish town of Albacete in the year 2000 and perfectly combines both the aggression and the melodic edge of classic '80s thrash metal with a breathtaking modern southern fury that results in an impressive blend of rage, attitude and a high level of technical skills, rarely seen with young bands like this."
ANGELUS APATRIDA's band name mixes Spanish and Latin language and can be translated into English as "stateless" or "renegade" angels. Influenced by the early Bay Area thrash metal and NWOBHM scenes and more specifically bands like IRON MAIDEN, MEGADETH, ANTHRAX, OVERKILL, PANTERA, TESTAMENT and ANNIHILATOR, ANGELUS APATRIDA established itself in its homeland with two independent album releases, "Evil Unleashed" (2006) and "Give 'Em War" (2007), as well as countless live appearances at various festivals (Lorca Rock, Alternavigo, Metalway, etc.) and at the clubs in most of the country's larger cities with acts like BARÓN ROJO, DESTRUCTION, SEPULTURA and many more.
