Long-running Canadian metallers INFERNAL MAJESTY have set "Systematical Extermination" as the title of their new album, tentatively due before the end of the year via Greece's Black Lotus Records. The follow-up to 2004's "One Who Points To Death" is being produced by Jean-François Dagenais (KATAKLYSM, MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX) and marks the recording debut with the band of new singer Brian Langley (MECHA MESSIAH), who replaced longtime frontman Chris Bailey earlier in the year.
In a recent interview with MetalEater.com, Langley had the following to say about the new album's musical direction: "The guitar is going to be very complex — very big-sounding. The vocals — not to say that I'm going to be singing like clean vocals or anything like that, but I can definitely do the low growls and the high screams. I can do the Halford banshee wails but they won't like that (laughs). It doesn't really suit INFERNAL either. When I sing the songs, I obviously look at how Bailey WOULD do them, but at the same time, I try to bring something new and fresh — give it my kind of stamp of approval on it or whatever. I think they’re really going to like the sound on it. I know the Coach (Eric DeBoer) has been practicing harder. His drumming is even more insane than it was on 'One Who Points to Death'. My jaw just drops. I watch the Coach drum all the time and I don't know how he does it."
"Systematical Extermination" projected track listing:
01. Against All Gods
04. Burnt Beyond Recognition
05. Systematical Extermination
06. From Paradise To Hell
08. Nation of Assassins
