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...
