THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD Prepares To Record New Album

South Carolina's THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD is currently writing material for its second full-length album, "Malice", tentatively due later in the year via Prosthetic Records. The follow-up to 2005's "Bloodlust" will once again feature artwork from Paul Romano (MASTODON, THE RED CHORD), while this time around, the band will enlist Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, ex-MORBID ANGEL) for production, engineering and mixing duties. Alan Douches (UNEARTH, SHADOWS FALL) of West West Side Music will master the effort. Recording is set to begin on February 16 at Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida and wrap on March 15.

Commented guitarist Justin Longshore: "The new material is coming along nicely. The songs are a lot more mature and the music is much faster, aggressive, and way more pissed off. I think fans are going to really love it.

"We are really pumped to work with Erik Rutan on 'Malice'. We've never worked with a producer and I don't think we could have chosen anyone better; we really admire the work he's done in MORBID ANGEL and HATE ETERNAL and also the engineering efforts he's produced for CANNIBAL CORPSE, HATE ETERNAL, and PREMONITIONS OF WAR, among others.

"After we hit the studio, we plan to dominate the world once again and tour throughout the year. We will be playing a lot of new places including Europe.

"2007 is going to be an exciting year for THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD."

Since the release of "Bloodlust", THROUGH THE EYES OF THE DEAD has stayed on the road for much of 2005 and 2006, including landing a slot on last year's Sounds of The Underground, supporting UNEARTH, and fronting the band's own highly-successful headlining tour with FROM A SECOND STORY WINDOW and labelmates THE ACACIA STRAIN and LIGHT THIS CITY, among others.
