EXECRATION Putting Finishing Touches On New Album

Norwegian death metal band EXECRATION is putting the finishing touches on its second album, "Odes Of The Occult", for a fall release. According to a press release, the follow-up to 2008's "Syndicate Of Lethargy" will contain "nine tracks of vicious, evil death metal on double 12-inch vinyl. It parts with the percussive style of previous releases in favor of a wider set of influences drawing from death metal, doom and cult black metal. In 50-plus minutes, 'Odes Of The Occult' will make your ears bleed from dark, brutal doom-laced death metal chemically cleansed of any 'modern' death metal tricks. With 'Odes Of The Occult', the band has also added more diverse vocals in addition to their traditional guttural growls, giving their musical universe a new dimension. The resulting album is a definite step ahead from previous releases."

"Odes Of The Occult" was produced and recorded by the band with help from Andreas Tylden of ALTAAR and Ola Gundelsby. It is currently being mixed by Gundelsby, who also mixed the band's contribution to the "Oslo We Rot" split.

A demo version of the new track "Obsession" is available for streaming on EXECRATION's MySpace page, and an early recording of "Entheogen" was recently featured on the four-way split 2x7" "In Oslo We Rot" with fellow Norwegians OBLITERATION, DISKORD and LOBOTOMIZED.

EXECRATION's full-length debut, "Syndicate of Lethargy", was released in August 2008 via Vendlus Records. The follow-up to the 2007 EP "Language of the Dead" featured guest appearances by OBLITERATION vocalist Sindre Solem, SHE SAID DESTROY frontman Anders Bakke, Espen Hangård of DISKORD and NOPLACETOHIDE, Andreas Tylden of ALTAR and JR Ewing and Svein Egil Hatlevik of FLEURETY and ZWEIZZ.

According to a press release, the EXECRATION members "possess a taste for the finest vintage death metal, but are strikingly contemporary in terms of composition and performance. EXECRATION masterfully conduct the essence of the genre's 25-year-long history, from pioneers AUTOPSY and DEATH to reinventers NILE and DISGORGE."
