Jordanian dark oriental metallers BILOCATE will release their new album, "Sudden Death Syndrome", on July 6 in the United Arab Emirates. Release dates for other territories will follow soon.
The cover artwork for "Sudden Death Syndrome" (see below) was designed by Dennis Sibeijn, who has previously worked with such bands as DRACONIAN, CHIMAIRA and ABORTED.
Commented vocalist Ramzi Essayed: "During the mixing stage, we were working in parallel together with Dennis on the artwork idea and layout. It's ready now with the magnificent work of Dennis. He truly reflected the album spirit and concepts. A special thanks to him from BILOCATE for his efforts and support."
"Sudden Death Syndrome" was mixed and mastered at Fascination Street Studio in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, BLOODBATH, AMON AMARTH, SYMPHONY X, PARADISE LOST)
The track listing for the effort is as follows:
01. Humans And The Dark Affiliation
02. Blooded Forest
03. The Dead Sea
06. Pure Wicked Sins
07. The Stone of Hate
The song "The Dead Sea" is available for streaming on the band's MySpace page.
Bogren previously stated about BILOCATE: "BILOCATE takes the qualities from the best epic death metal bands and blend it with their very own Middle Eastern touch, and out comes one of the most interesting metal bands I've heard for a long time You can hear that they put effort and thought in to every note and every scream!"
BILOCATE's Ramzi Essayed recorded the vocals for the new CD at the In the Mix studios with Nash Planojevic, who is known for his work as a monitor engineer for IRON MAIDEN and SAXON.
Stated Nash: "Refreshing, promising and definitely most tight project I ever done so far here in Dubai. On the other hand definitely most demanding task, guys know exactly what they want and that's the way to be!!! Looking forward together with Jens and guys from BILOCATE to open new horizons for the music coming from the region, and proof the fact that the good music lays deep down under the remains of Petra and sand dunes of futuristic Dubai!"
