Neverborne Reveals New Album Details

London-based melodic death metallers Neverborne have set "Self Destruct Syndrome" as the title to their forthcoming debut full length album, tentatively due out December 2011.

The CD features guest appearances by Henrik Danhage (DEATHDESTRUCTION, ex-EVERGREY) and Antony Hämäläinen (NIGHTRAGE) and was recorded at Thin Ice Studios in Surrey England late 2010.

Commented the band: "We decided to re-enter Thin Ice Studios and to again enlist Karl Groom (HAMMERFALL, DRAGONFORCE) to produce the new album. We were really impressed with the work he did for us on our 2009 EP and the atmosphere and environment there is awesome. It allowed us to be relaxed, creative and make the best possible recordings. We returned there earlier this year to finalise the mixes."

Neverborne had the pleasure as well to work with Henrik Udd (ARCH ENEMY, DARK TRANQUILLITY) at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg Sweden to complete the final masters. "In Am My Own," a limited edition bonus track from those sessions is now available for streaming on the band's Facebook page, while an album track "Embers To Ashes" can be found on the band's official MySpace page.

Neverborne also announced that the band is now endorsed by Mayones Guitars and Basses. Brand new custom instruments were manufactured and supplied to Stuart Manicom, Jacques Fourie and Sharne Manicom as part of their full band endorsement.

The "Self Destruct Syndrome" cover art was created by Johan H Liebenberg, responsible for the design of the band's previous EP.

Here is the "Self Destruct Syndrome" track listing:

1. Mechanical Ruin (w/Antony Hämäläinen)
2. Forget To Live
3. Black Roses
4. Beneath The Scars
5. With Nothing Left
6. Interlude
7. Embers To Ashes
8. The Enemy That We Keep (w/ Henrik Danhage)
9. Nature Of Destruction
10. My Confession
11. A Touch Of The Divine

Nightrage Posts Track-By-Track Commentary

On September 26th (and a day later in the U.S.) Nightrage is going to release the band's fifth album "Insidious," and the group recently posted the title track online. Vocalist Antony Hämäläinen has now checked in with the first in a series of track-by-track descriptions. You can check out the first segment below.

"So Far Away" – "This would be part one of three instrumental tracks for the album. Short and to the point. Reminds me of a triumphant funeral dirge. Marios' trademark guitar melodies are all over the place on this one."

"Delirium Of The Fallen" – "This is a bit different for the band as an opening song. We have always in the past had the typical 'blast beat' type song open the album. We tried to go in a different direction here. This song kind of has it all. Crazy solos from Marios and Olof, an emotional vocal section by Apollo from Firewind, and a very catchy chorus."

"Insidious" – "This is for me the best song I've ever done. Not only is it heavy as hell, but Tomas Lindberg recorded and sang vocal melodies and lyrics I wrote. A true honor and a great friend to the band. The song as a whole never stops destroying everything in it's path."

"Wrapped In Deceiftful Dreams" – "Another catchy chorus type song. Gus G shreds along with Marios on this one. Tom from Everygrey laid down a clean section for this one. The original way was just a spoken word from me. Marios then had an amazing idea in the studio for Tom to take the lyrics and basically freestyle. It took the man five minutes to lay down these amazing vocals! The one thing I wanted as a singer to change on this record were the clean vocals. I had done my thing on Wearing A Martyr's Crown, and this time I felt the need of a new flavor."

"Hate Turns Black" - "This is one of the first songs we wrote for this record. To me this song takes you on a great ride. Very old school Gothenburg feel in the pre chorus and a traditional metal feel on the rest. This is Nightrage to the bone"

Part II of the track-by-track commentary is set to follow in the coming days with mastermind Marios Iliopoulos. Check back soon for details.

"The new Nightrage album is ready! We are extremely happy with the results and we look forward to sharing this music with all of you. Here is the journey thus far: We recorded the music at Zero Gravity studios on Athens, Greece with our great friend Terry Nikas at the helm. He did a fantastic job and provided us with an amazing environment and atmosphere to make the best record possible.

"Antony had the pleasure as well to work on the vocals in a very different setting with Ryan Butler at his Arcane Digital Recording studio in Arizona. Ryan has been assisting us with demo sessions since the last album and it felt very natural for us to try the final product with him. We then went to Studio Fredman located in Gothenburg Sweden for the mix and master. Our longtime producer Fredrik Nordström and Henrik Udd worked long and hard to make the best out of what we gave them.

"We have recorded sixteen songs overall, and as we promised before our guest players actually need no introduction."

The track listing is as follows:

1. So far Away (Intro))(w/ George Baharidis of Breaking Silence and Deceptor)
2. Delirium Of The Fallen (w/ Apollo Papathanasio of Firewind)
3. Insidious (w/ Tomas Lindberg of At The Gates/ Lock Up)

Nightrage To Support Firewind On Tour

Nightrage has been announced as the supporting act for Firewind on the upcoming "Frets of Fury" North American tour, which starts on October 9th.

Firewind's Gus G. states: “We couldn’t be happier to announce our first full North American tour! It’s been over three years since Firewind toured from coast to coast across the U.S. and we’re coming back stronger than ever with a killer package. We put a lot of thought into who we wanted to go out with us and truly believe that each band on this bill brings something special to the table making this a very diverse line-up. However, shredding guitar driven metal remains the prominent feature across the board.

“In fact there’s more to it than just that, as this package is somewhat of a musical family tree. Not many people know this but Arsis’ guitarist James Malone and I went to Berklee together back in 1998. We had an instrumental band together for awhile, which later became Firewind. James is a kick ass shredder and I’m glad our bands are finally touring together.

“Also, most people don't know that I played in Nightrage for few years. I did two albums with them and their main-man Marios Iliopoulos is a phenomenal guitar player. He also filled in on bass for Firewind this year, when Petros was unable to tour. More...

Nightrage Working On New Album

Nightrage has just finished work on 15 pre-production songs for an upcoming "yet untitled" album, and the band is looking forward to entering the studio to start recording in June.

Mastermind Marios Iliopoulos commented about the recording process:

"This time we have chosen a different approach in the recording process. All drums, bass, and guitars will be recorded at Zero Gravity Studios in Athens, Greece. Some of you might remember, this location was the set for our latest video 'Wearing A Martyr’s Crown.'

"On this record we want to break up the monotony of the typical Scandinavian weather/scenery and head to one of the most beautiful countries this band has ever played. So once again, Greece is our destination!

"Antony will head into Arcane Digital Recording (located in sunny Chandler, Arizona USA) with our good friend Ryan Butler (Landmine Marathon, Misery Index, Phobia, Exhumed) for the vocal recordings. Another first for the band, trying out an American studio will be an interesting change. But for those of you who know Ryan’s work, you can expect the result to be old school and punishing.

"Of course, our album would not be complete without the help from our longtime producer Fredrik Nordstrom (Dimmu Borgir, Opeth, In Flames, The Haunted, Exhumation, Firewind), who will drum edit, reamp, mix and master the album in Studio Fredman. We trust our long time friend Fredrik will do an amazing job once again. He’s been stunned by the quality of our new songs and is looking forward to working with us again.

"We also have some very important guest musicians contributing to the album as well."

The new album will be released via Lifeforce Records in Europe and North America (release dates to be revealed soon) and Floga Records from Greece will be releasing the album as limited vinyl edition.
