Toronto, Ontario, Canada's STARRING JANET LEIGH has posted a new song, "Mistress", on the band's MySpace page. The track comes off the group's debut full-length album, "Spectrum", which is scheduled for release on May 12 via Ironclad Recordings (Trevor Phipps of UNEARTH's label). The CD was recorded in June and September 2007 with producer/engineer Greg Dawson of BWC Studios, who has previously worked with MARE (Hydrahead), THE END (Relapse), MONEEN (Vagrant) and many others. Mastering of "Spectrum" was handled by Alan Douches at West West Side who has worked with CONVERGE, THE END, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, MASTODON, UNEARTH, and NILE, just to name a few.
"Compared with previous songs written, the cohesion and understandability of our music has allowed us to push the level of intensity and technicality to new levels while still maintaining a very listenable and atmospheric presence," comments guitarist Matthew Zadkovich. "We hope that listeners will be able to take away something new each and every time they listen to the album, while still knowing and feeling the songs as they did the first time they were heard."
Formed in 2003, the Canadian metal act began with creating music the band found both interesting and challenging with no compromise to musical integrity. Fusing death metal, hardcore, and modern jazz to create a sound that can best be described as progressively technical death metal, STARRING JANET LEIGH's aural onslaught is a fine blend of artistry, fury, passion and precision. Combine the band's musical fervor and dexterity with their unforgettable live show and what you end up with is no need for gimmicks or clichés.
Stated Trevor Phipps of Ironclad Recordings: "We are excited to be working with STARRING JANET LEIGH as we feel they have a lot to offer the world of heavy music. Their technically proficient blend of death metal and various forms of aggressive music is something we can fully back and get excited about."
