Italian death metallers NATRON have issued the following update:
"After performing two amazing summer festivals (Neurotic and Sziget Sound) we're now ready to start mixing the new album this coming July 16th, after an endless multi-postponement of the sessions due to availability of the Golem Dungeon Studios (other bands in the meanwhile came to record their stuff). We should take one week to mix down the whole thing. Cover artwork is also on works so everything should be ready within the end of this month. We know this time we took a lot to get everything done but that was due to our will to make it the most perfect we can, because we know there's plenty of you out there who's waiting for the next NATRON album therefore we want to give you THE BEST NATRON ALBUM ever!!! We know that you are also curious about the new lineup after so many years, even if some of you could check it out already and experienced the new brutality. Well, we only say that detractors (if any) will be smashed again by this record. Record label also will be announced soon!"
The sixth NATRON studio album was recorded at the Golem Dungeon Studios in Bari-Capurso with Ottavio Marzo (GOLEM guitarist) as engineer and co-producer.
NATRON's current lineup:
Nicola Bavaro (CRUENTUS, SCHIZO, GLACIAL FEAR) - Vocals
Stefano Pomponio (URSHURARK, MUTALA, AD NOCTEM FUNERIIS) - Guitar
Domenico Mele - Guitar
Alyosha Danisi (EXHUMER) - Bass
Max Marzocca - Drums
NATRON split with France's Holy Records after releasing four albums through the label: 1999's "Negative Prevails", 2000's "Bedtime for Mercy", 2002's "Necrospective", and 2004's "Livid Corruption".
The band's most recent full-length effort, "Livid Corruption", was recorded at Jolly Roger studios in Italy and was mixed at Starstruck studios in Denmark with Anders Lundemark (KONKHRA). The mastering session took place in Paris, France.
