Long-running Italian metallers SCHIZO have inked a deal with Scarlet Records. The group's new album, "Cicatriz Black", is scheduled for release in March. Production duties were handled by SCHIZO themselves, while the mastering was taken care of by Peter In De Betou (MARDUK, MESHUGGAH). Cover artwork was created by Italian artist Lorenzo Mariani (MAYHEM, DARKTHRONE, MARDUK, 1349, ABORYM). Guest appearances on the CD include Steve Sylvester (DEATH SS), AC Wild (BULLDOZER) and Flegias (NECRODEATH).

Commented SCHIZO mastermind Alberto Penzin: "Thrash metal is attitude, not just a pose. And we incarnate thrash's most extreme and psychotic spirit. With guitarist S.B. Reder back in action 15 years after, the magic is still there. SCHIZO are back. And this time they're here to stay. But don't expect the usual copy/paste from the old years… We're able to look at the future with a different mentality, keeping in mind that sonic violence is still SCHIZO's real trademark. This album is for those who never stopped to believe. Ourselves first. Psycho thrash is back!"
