THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD has entered Geller Cellar Studios in New York to begin recording the band's as-yet-untitled third full-length album. The group is self-producing the effort, with Eliot Geller engineering, for an early 2010 release via Prosthetic Records.
Due to "scheduling conflicts," the South Carolina-based group will **NOT** be mixing the album at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida with Erik Rutan (CANNIBAL CORPSE, SIX FEET UNDER, GOATWHORE). Instead, the mixing process will be handled by Geller and the band once tracking is done. The artwork will be created by Paul Romano (MASTODON, GODFLESH).
"It's really great to have the control on the production of your own album," guitarist Justin Longshore told Noisecreep. "We usually knows exactly what we want to capture on the recording, before the rehearsal process even begins. It starts from the core. We've always self-produced our records in the past, other than our previous album, 'Malice'. We decided to change things up then, and let Erik Rutan — who we really respect as a musician, engineer and producer — produce, engineer and mix 'Malice'.
"We just wanted to change things up a bit with this album so we decided to go this route," Longshore said. "That way, we all get a lot of involvement in the outcome. Everything is going great and we really think we captured what we have envisioned."
THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD released "Malice" in 2007 and "Bloodlust" in 2005, both on Prosthetic Records.
