FATALIST Recording DEATH Cover For 'After Party Massacre' Soundtrack

Ventura, California death metallers FATALIST are recording a cover version of DEATH's "Beyond The Unholy Grave" for the soundtrack to "After Party Massacre". The band states, "We finished tacking the drums tonight and now it's on to the guitars and bass.

"We tried recording the song using the three different tempos that are on the original recording, but it sounded weird when we did it. So after that didn't work, we decided to go with just the tempo of the intro and it seemed to flow a little better. It might be different than how DEATH played it, but that's why this is a cover. We are using a slightly different way of recording the guitars this time around as well. We will be using the ENTOMBED method of using the HM-2 on the left and right channel, and a DS-1 in the center Channel. [We] used this setup on a demo of a new song and it turned out great."

FATALIST is seeking a new frontman following the recent departures of guitarist/vocalist Wes Caley (ex-EXHUMED, UPHILL BATTLE) drummer Tyler Castro.

Commented guitarist/vocalist Neil Burkdoll: "We need someone who can handle the vocals from the debut album, 'The Depths of Inhumanity', and be able to add a new spin to the formula as well. The singer needs to be able to practice at least once a week and be able to perform live as well. Transportation and a good attitude are required."

"Frozen Epitaph", the new video from FATALIST, can be viewed below. The track comes off the band's full-length debut, "The Depths of Inhumanity", which was released in the U.S. on November 23, 2009 via Ibex Moon Records.

Although the influences are obvious, the band injects its own personality into these 11 songs while staying true to the bruising-and-buzzing sounds of early-'90s Stockholm. Hear for yourself why James Hoare of Terrorizer praised FATALIST for playing "Swedish death metal like the masters" and shredding "the old way."
