Reunited hardcore legends EARTH CRISIS have entered the studio with producer Chris "Zeuss" Harris (SHADOWS FALL, HATEBREED) to begin recording their sixth full-length album for a summer release via Century Media Records. Songtitles set to appear on the CD include "The Eradicators", "Raze", "Askari", "Neutralize The Threat", "Counterstrike" and "100 Kiloton Blast".
The first in a series of video clips featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the studio can be viewed below.
EARTH CRISIS' chugging riffs and barked declarations served as the mouthpiece of America's militant vegan, straight-edge movement throughout the '90s, detailing the ideas of animal and human liberation, drug-free living and personal empowerment through hardcore music. The group has continued along this path of breaking new ground, constantly working and reaching more people spreading their message to the masses.
After a lengthy hiatus, the band reformed in 2008 to the delight of the hardcore genre. They soon produced the vicious offering "To The Death" that undoubtedly proved that they have never been stronger from both songwriting and musicianship perspectives.
"To The Death" was released on May 5, 2009 via Century Media Records (April 20 in Europe). The self-produced CD was recorded at Castle Recording Studios in Utica, New York and was mixed by Tue Madsen (HEAVEN SHALL BURN, DARK TRANQUILLITY, MOONSPELL, THE HAUNTED). Artwork for the effort was handled by Paul Romano (MASTODON, GODFLESH).
