Oakland, CA quartet SAVIOURS will unleash its sophomore full-length album, "Into Abaddon", on January 22, 2008 via New York City's Kemado Records. Episode one of an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at the making of the band's new record has been posted online by Ground Control magazine. Check it out below.
Filmed on location at Los Angeles' Bay Recording Studios, the special "Lunarcast" documents SAVIOURS recording and speaking about "Into Abaddon", which was produced, engineered and mixed by "Evil" Joe Barresi.
Over the years, Barresi has consistently worked with quality artists and made some of their more seminal records — TOOL "10,000 Days", MELVINS "Stoner Witch" and the QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE debut, to name a few.
Known for its refreshing take on the classic metal of decades past, SAVIOURS are becoming frontrunners in today's thriving heavy metal underworld, rapidly garnering international attention as one of the best heavy bands active today.
"Into Abaddon" final track listing:
01. Raging Embers
02. Into Abaddon
03. Narcotic Sea
04. Cavern of Mind
06. Firewake Angel
07. Inner Mountain Arthame
SAVIOURS are currently on tour with Swedish rockers WITCHCRAFT, debuting many of the new songs from "Into Abaddon". The self-described "piss-angry metal band" will hit the road in January, 2008 as hand-picked support for fellow Oakland metalheads HIGH ON FIRE.
