U.K. thrash metallers INCINERY have secured the services of British Grammy-nominated record producer Chris Tsangarides (BLACK SABBATH, EXODUS, KING DIAMOND, JUDAS PRIEST, THIN LIZZY) to record their as-yet-untitled debut album at his Ecology Room Studios in Kent.
Comments INCINERY bassist David Jordan: "If anyone had said to us when we started out four years ago that Chris Tsangarides would ever be interested in working with us, we probably would have assigned such a statement to the archived box of pipe dreams — so the realization that it's actually going to happen has us stoked! At the same time, though, it comes with its own pressures; we respect Chris and his reputation and therefore, we're super conscious of not wanting to disappoint.
"Working with Chris is a priceless opportunity and it's our intention to maximize the whole experience in terms of what we can learn through observation and guidance from Chris at work."
David and his INCINERY bandmates James Rawlings (vocals), founder members Chris Kenny and Jason Chaikeawrung (guitars), and Stephen Dudley (drums) played their first overseas gig at the Innocent venue in Hengelo, Netherlands en route to Slovenia's MetalDays in Tomlin where they proudly represented the Bloodstock Open Air festival best of unsinged metal in the Metal 2 The Masses proposition. 2013 also saw INCINERY feature at the Nottingham, and Birmingham finalé of the Headbanger's Balls Tour events in aid of testicular cancer and the Teenage Cancer Trust, Killer Promotions Thrashersaurus II, Heretic Promotions Chaosfest, and Les-Fest Northwest.
