MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker recently posted the following update to the Earache Records web site:
"Tucker here. I am done tracking all of the bass and vocals for the new CD, and I can truly say that I have done some things I never did before vocally on this recording. I am extremely pleased with the material, and I think everyone involved is doing a tremendous job. Pete [Sandoval] did an incredible performance on drums, and songwriting as usual! Trey [Azagthoth] has put together a seriously twisted set of songs that I am very proud to be a part of. I haven't heard the solos yet, but I am quite sure they will be amazing as always! Punchy [co-producer and longtime front-of-house mixing engineer Juan 'Punchy' Gonzalez] and the studio [D.O.W. (Diet Of Worms)] are great!! I can say that the bass tones we got on this record (Punchy and I) are excellent, the kind of bass sound I always wanted — very driven and gritty yet very audible, it blends perfect with the drums guitars and vox. Punchy is great to work with — a true friend of the band — and I hope we do this again. The mixing is starting and I think this will be an amazing sounding record."
MORBID ANGEL's follow-up to 2000's "Gateways To Annihilation", tentatively titled "H2K3" (a title that is likely to be changed before the album is officially released), is due in September through Earache Records.
