Veteran death metallers IMMOLATION recently entered Millbrook Sound Studios in New York with longtime producer Paul Orofino to begin recording their eighth album, due in early 2010 via Nuclear Blast Records.
Video footage of IMMOLATION drummer Steve Shalaty laying down several tracks for the CD can be viewed below (courtesy of SickDrummerMagazine.com).
IMMOLATION's new album will contain "10 songs of the strongest material we have ever written," the band said in a statement. "The new material is more violent and aggressive, with fast sections that take us to a new level of speed and intensity, while complementing the dark and sullen heavier moments. There are plenty of miserable and militant movements to please the diehard and new IMMOLATION fans alike."
The CD will be mixed by Zack Ohren, who has previously worked with DECREPIT BIRTH, SUFFOCATION and ALL SHALL PERISH, among others.
Catch IMMOLATION as direct support to NILE on the "Those Whom The Gods Detest Tour" in January/February.
The upcoming album will be the third consecutive release featuring IMMOLATION's current lineup:
Ross Dolan - Bass, Vocals
Robert Vigna - Guitars
Bill Taylor - Guitars
Steve Shalaty - Drums
IMMOLATION's seventh release, "Shadows in the Light", came out in May 2007 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at Millbrook Sound Studios with producer Paul Orofino.
Along with bands like SUFFOCATION, INCANTATION and MORTICIAN, IMMOLATION is one of the all important forefathers of New York death metal. Not only has the band developed its musical capabilities over the years, but it has also become one of the most intense live acts in the industry.
