Chicago's THE CHASM have announced that they will be joined by bassist Ivan Galdamez of Chicago's WHORRID during their upcoming gigs with MORTICIAN.THE CHASM's new album, "The Spell of Retribution", is scheduled for release on November 16 via Earache Records. The vinyl edition will be released on a single disc and the first 250 copies (the "Death & Retribution" edition) will include a limited-edition poster. Comprising 10 tracks with a running time of over 66 minutes, "The Spell of Retribution" represents THE CHASM's "most adventurous and ambitious project to date, and firmly sets them apart from the rest of the current death metal scene by incorporating purposely lengthy songs dealing with intricate concepts close to the heart of frontman Daniel Corchado," according to a posting on the Earache web site. Recorded at Soto Sound Studios in Illinois and then mixed by Corchado at Lux Inframundis, the album's recording was not without its problems, including at one point a studio fire that set the schedule back and led to the CD taking longer than anticipated to complete. A full-length MP3 of the new THE CHASM track "Fortress", taken from the forthcoming album, is available for download at this location.
