Strychnia just issued this statement online via Facebook about work progressing on an impending new album release:
"So if you're wondering what the hell happened to this new album of ours... it's still coming. We really apologize for the delay as unexpected events of misfortune have made this a complicated project.
"For those who don't already know - Rory and I (Kev) are funding this album entirely between just the two of us. I'm sure many of you know that recording is not cheap, along with the artwork, merch, etc.
"We tried the Kickstarter campaign but fell short of our goal, so we have been working hard to acquire the funds needed to finish this album. The recording is actually VERY near finished, so as soon as we get back in the studio - we'll be done quickly.
"Thank you all so much for supporting us and sticking with us through all these years. It's been great, and we don't plan on quitting anytime soon. After the completion of this album, we will work on completing our line-up for live shows. Trust me it would be a dream come true to tour and take the stage before all of you guys!" More...
Strychnia just launched a Kickstarter campaign for new album "Into The Catacombs" (check out the perks for joining the campaign over here) and also revealed the cover artwork below. The band comments:
"For the past year we have been working on completing a new full-length album. Unfortunately the band has dwindled down to 2 members - which does not affect our recording process, but it makes things very hard financially. My partner in the band is a multi-instrumentalist and plays guitar, bass, and drums. So all we need to finish this album is really some extra help with the finances.
"You guys are the best fans we could ever ask for and the amount of support has been immense! You all know our Vocalist - Kevin, was struggling with some personal issues... and because of you guys he is now motivated to come back stronger than ever. We know you will always be by our side, and we will always be by yours!" More...
New Jersey's Strychnia has checked in with the following update about working on a new album:
"With summer quickly approaching, we thought it would be a good time for us to let you all know what we've been up to lately. If you guys thought we were planning to slow down its actually quite the opposite.
"We've been locked up in our death metal laboratory for most of the year so far where Rory and Frank are writing what will become songs for whats looking like a new full length album! We are about halfway through the writing process as of now and things are really sounding BIG so far.
"The new music is sort of a combination of old and new Strychnia styles while pushing ourselves into even more brutal, technical, melodic, and epic sounds. At this point we'll be picking up speed with the writing process and then moving on into the demoing process, lyrics, working titles, pre-production, artwork, and all that fun stuff.
"We're also still in the process of bringing in another special guest artist on one of the new album tracks! If you enjoyed John Gallagher on the EP last year then we promise you won't be disappointed this time around either.
"From now on we'll also be making sure to bring you guys a lot more updates relating to the new album and everything were working on. Thanks again to everyone who is a fan of this band for the undying support! Until next time, you know what to do. Show us some love and likes for new brutality in 2014!" More...
