AGAINST THE PLAGUES: New Album Title, Track Listing Revealed

Chicago-based multinational extreme act AGAINST THE PLAGUES has issued the following update:

"We are currently wrapping up the production of the new AGAINST THE PLAGUES album. As we are nearing the release, we felt that it was time to reveal the album's title and details. We decided to call this collection 'The Quaternion' since the album features four extensive pieces that correspond to one conceptual idea. This concept underlines the theme and philosophy of AGAINST THE PLAGUES. We feel that over the past six years, the listeners of 'extreme metal' have been denied and robbed of the essence of metal's original intentions, class, and quality. We are hoping, with this album, that perhaps yesterday's listeners will revive their estranged relationship with extreme music. We also hope that new ears will catch a glimpse of this craft before it completely dies out in North America."

Due this summer, "The Quaternion" will feature the following track listing (not in final running order):

01. Man's Modern World
02. Theokratia
03. The Praetorian Icon
04. Enemy Herein

AGAINST THE PLAGUES is:

* Varyen Chylinski (FOREST OF IMPALED, DAMNATION) - Drums
* Marco Martell (MALEVOLENT CREATION, DIVINE EMPIRE) - Guitar
* Marcin "Novy" Nowak (BEHEMOTH, VADER, ROAD'S END) - Bass
* Orlando Logan "Plague Healer" Perez (ex-VEX, WHORE OF BABYLON - Vocals

AGAINST THE PLAGUES' debut album, "Decoding The Mainframe", was released in Europe on March 31, 2010 via Vic Records.

AGAINST THE PLAGUES in 2010 parted ways with guitarist Adrian Adamus (FOREST OF IMPALED, CORPHAGY). According to the band, Adrian left AGAINST THE PLAGUES "in order to focus on his personal/family life." Guitar duties in AGAINST THE PLAGUES are now being handled by Marco Martell (MALEVOLENT CREATION, DIVINE EMPIRE, KULT OF AZAZEL), who previously played bass for the group.

"Decoding The Mainframe" contains re-recorded versions of all eight songs from AGAINST THE PLAGUES' self-released CD, "Architecture of Oppression". The tracks were remastered and mixed by Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, AEON, DISSECTION, KATATONIA, MARDUK).
