New Zealand-based extreme metallers DAWN OF AZAZEL will enter Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida mid-September to begin recording their third album for an early 2009 release. The band says, "We have been extremely busy working on this project for the last few months and are expecting some amazing results before the end of the year."
DAWN OF AZAZEL recently uploaded three new demo tracks to the band's MySpace page.
Commented frontman Rigel Walshe: "These three new tracks are demo versions of three new tracks that will be appearing on the forthcoming album — 'Fornication Revelation', 'The Art of Seduction' and 'Liquor and Lust'. We have been rehearsing intensely since [drummer] Jeremy [Suckling, ex-SCORIA] joined the fold and we feel these new tracks represent the strongest material, musically and lyrically and ideologically that we have produced since our inception."
DAWN OF AZAZEL's latest album, "Sedition", was re-released in September 2006 with a video bonus track and distributed through RED/Megaforce Records/MIC via Ibex Moon Records.
DAWN OF AZAZEL created a stir in 2005 after a New Zealand newspaper published an exposé on frontman Rigel Walshe's occupation as a police officer and the band's lyrical content (check previous BLABBERMOUTH.NET stories: Story#1, Story#2, Story#3).
