Horrendous Announces New Album

East coast death metal outfit Horrendous have announced their signing to Season of Mist for the release of their currently untitled fourth album. The new outing follows 2015’s Anareta. Says Horrendous via Facebook about the album:

“The time has finally arrived to announce our newest creation to the world. It was a painful birth, brimming with the paranoia and malaise of our times, and has since matured into a sprawling colossus that consumed us as we constructed it. It is our monument to uncertainty, to the mad perseverance of the soul and its tired labors, and the redemptive cycle of failure and resiliency–another stone rolled to the peak, demanding all of our abilities, and we can’t wait to watch it fall.”

Recording will commence at guitarist/vocalist Damian Herring’s Subterranean Watchtower Studios. No release date has yet been confirmed.

Horrendous Releasing New Album

East Coast death metal trio Horrendous is set to unleash third full-length album, "Anareta," this coming October 30 via Dark Descent Records. "Anareta" follows the 2014 sophomore album "Ecdysis." The band also comments on this coming release:

“We are all very proud of the album and feel it is our best work to date. While our composition process has always been spread out over several separated writing-specific sessions, one thing that separates 'Anareta' from our past work is our recording process.

"We recorded all the songs over one continuous period (the recording sessions for 'The Chills' and 'Ecdysis' were more spread out)--Matt and Jamie stayed at Damian’s house/studio for weeks on end and the three of us lived, breathed and dreamed of nothing but the album during that time. It was our entire lives for over a month (two months if you include the mixing and mastering stage), and we think this complete dedication to the record is one of the factors that really made it turn out so well.

"There was a lot of magic in the air once we finished the foundation of the record, and each day we built off of the prior day’s creative energies and inspirations until it bloomed into something immense.” More...
