German thrash metal veterans ASSASSIN will release a new album, "Bestia Immundis", on February 7 via Massacre Records. The disc was mixed by Marc Görtz at Nemesis Studio, and mastered by Olman V. Wiebe (a.k.a. Olman Viper) at Hertzwerk Studio. Dirk Freder created the cover artwork.
According to a press release, "Bestia Immundis" is "aggressive, powerful and heavy but also varied, and offers a nice mix of speed and thrash metal with hardcore and punk influences."

"Bestia Immundis" will be available as a CD digipak, limited-edition gatefold vinyl LP as well as download and stream.

Originally formed in 1985, the band has already released numerous demos, albums as well as a DVD. They aren't strangers to the stages at festivals and in clubs either.
ASSASSIN's latest studio album, "Combat Cathedral", came out in May 2016 via Steamhammer/SPV.
After founding member and vocalist Robert Gonella left ASSASSIN in 2014, new singer Ingo "Crowzak" Bajonczak joined the group.
In late 2016, longtime ASSASSIN guitarist Michael Hoffmann exited the band for "personal reasons." He has since been replaced by Frank "Blackfire" Gosdzik (KREATOR, SODOM).
