Los Angeles-based hardcore band STRIFE will head down to Brazil next week to start recording its as-yet-untitled new full-length album. The group has enlisted longtime friend Igor Cavalera (SEPULTURA, CAVALERA CONSPIRACY) to play drums on the CD, which will be produced by TERROR drummer Nick Jett (TAKE OFFENSE, LIONHEART). The effort will be laid down at Mix Nova Studios in Brazil, with additional recordings set to take place at Blood Tracks Studio and Sunset Lodge in Los Angeles. Producer Matt Hyde (HATEBREED, SLAYER) will take care of the mastering duties.
Commented STRIFE guitarist Andrew Kline: "This album is going to be our best release yet… We have been working on pre-production tracks for the last few months, and the songs are amazing. This record is more along the lines of [1997's] 'In This Defiance', but with a harder and a little more modern edge. Plus Igor's drumming is really going to take everything to the next level."
A final release date, label, cover art and additional information will be revealed in the near future.
