STIGMA Recording New Digital-Only EP

Fresh from touring Northern Europe with TRIGGER THE BLOODSHED, Italian horror-inspired extreme metal act STIGMA has entered the studio to record a yet-to-be-titled digital-only EP, set for December release via Pivotal Rockordings. Recording is being overseen by engineer Simone Mularoni while mixing and mastering duties will be handled by the Bombs Of Death Productions duo of BLEEDING THROUGH singer Brandan Schieppati and ANAAL NATHRAKH mainman Mick Kenney.

STIGMA recently shot a video for the song "The Undertaker" with director Salvatore Perrone (A DAY TO REMEMBER, EVERGREEN TERRACE, SUICIDE SILENCE). The track comes off the band's sophomore album, "Concerto for the Undead", which was released on April 30 in Europe and May 4 in North America via Pivotal Rockordings. Check out a trailer for the clip below.

The follow-up to 2008's "When Midnight Strikes!", "Concerto for the Undead" features lyrics centered on the cult-classic comic book series Tales From the Crypt and includes an additional guest vocal appearance by Jamie Hope (ex-THE RED SHORE). The CD was produced at Fear Studio by BRING ME THE HORIZON guitarist Jona Weinhofen and was mixed and mastered by Scott Atkins (BEHEMOTH, CRADLE OF FILTH, SYLOSIS). The artwork for the album features stunning comic illustrations of the band's now patent horror-themed lyrics and was created by Andrea Berton of Corefolio Design (THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, WINDS OF PLAGUE).
