XERATH: New Album Artwork Unveiled; First Song Available For Streaming
U.K. modern cutting-edge orchestral metal band XERATH will release its sophomore album, simply titled "II", on April 25 via Candlelight Records. The follow-up to 2009's "I" is described in a press release as "a huge and fully refined slab of XERATH's unique sound from the production genius of Jacob Hansen (ABORTED, PESTILENCE, TYR, HATESPHERE) at Hansen studios [in Ribe, Denmark]. XERATH have combined the most brutal and technical elements of modern extreme metal to offer you something massive, cinematic, heavy, groovy and ultimately epic beyond compare."
A new XERATH track, "Unite To Defy", is available for streaming below.
"II" includes cover artwork by Colin Marks (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, NEVERMORE, SCAR SYMMETRY). It features a guest appearance by Emil Werstler (DAATH).
XERATH's debut album was released on May 25, 2009 via Candlelight Records. The CD was mixed in France by Brett Caldas-Lima (CYNIC).
