Extreme metal supergroup LOCK UP has set "The Embodiment Of Paradox And Chaos" as the title if its new album, tentatively due this spring via an as-yet-undisclosed record label. The CD was recorded in November-December at HVR Studios in Ipswich, United Kingdom and is scheduled to be mixed later this month.
Fan-filmed video footage of LOCK UP performing the title track of its forthcoming album at Rock Planet club in Pinarella di Cervia, Italy in October 2010 can be viewed at this location.
LOCK UP last month uploaded the first new piece of music in eight years, a track titled "Life Of Devastation", to the band's official MySpace page. The song is set to appear on a split seven-inch single with MISERY INDEX later this year.
Originally formed by Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, VENOMOUS CONCEPT), Nick Barker (ex-CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR) and Jesse Pintado (NAPALM DEATH, TERRORIZER) to blast out the most caustic, skin-flaying brand of deathgrind, LOCK UP was joined by the raw throat of Peter Tägtgren (HYPOCRISY) for its debut album, 1999's fearsome "Pleasure Pave Sewers", and Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES, DISFEAR) for 2002's "Hate Breeds Suffering", touring Japan and then falling into inactivity.
Now joined by guitarist Anton Reisenegger (Chile's PENTAGRAM, CRIMINAL) in place of the late Jesse Pintado, LOCK UP is back in the most uncompromising style possible.
