AS YOU DROWN Working On New Material

Swedish death metallers AS YOU DROWN have commenced writing material for their as-yet-untitled sophomore album, to be released next year via Metal Blade Records worldwide. The follow-up to 2009's "Reflection" will be recorded at the band's own AYD Studio in Borås, Sweden.

Commented AS YOU DROWN: "Since coming home from our tour with VADER and DIVINE CHAOS earlier this year, we've been working hard on some new material. Right now we've got our sights set on recording sometime in the spring, which means the record will hopefully be out in the early fall.

"The material is sounding very promising/menacing so far, so prepare yourselves for a tidal wave of death metal insanity coming your way… Also, we're obviously looking to do some serious touring in 2011, stay tuned for dates. We pretty much can't wait to get this beast back on the road and we expect to see all of you crazy fuckers out there!"

AS YOU DROWN's debut album, "Reflection", was released in July 2009 via Metal Blade Records. The CD was recorded at the band's own studio, the AYD Studio, and was mixed and mastered at Studio Mega by Christian Silver (THE CROWN, SONIC SYNDICATE, IMPIOUS).

Formed in the winter of 2003/2004 under the name of ETHEREAL when the average age of the band was only 17 years, AS YOU DROWN "was born to combine the speed and brutality of the modern death metal scene with the atmosphere and catchy songwriting of its old-school predecessor," according to a press release. "Adding a number of outside influences, the result is an always raging — yet always changing, storm of anger, brutality and finesse.
