Immolation Issues Studio Update

Immolation has posted a new studio recording blog through Decibel Magazine. Excerpts from the blog follow:

"Since the last update, Bob and I spent the remainder of the week laying down the guitar and bass rhythm tracks. As soon as Bob was finished up with the rhythms, he then had to go song by song and record all the additional guitar rhythms and overlay sections. This became a long and involved process because there were so many layers in the songs that it became hard to keep track without referring to the pre-production. As soon as he thought he was all finished with one song, he would check the pre-production demos and realize he had more to go. So this is how it went for most of Friday and all day Saturday. I managed to finish up the bass tracks on Friday night hoping to get in there Saturday to start vocals, but this didn’t happen. After spending almost two full days with the additional guitar parts, Bob was ready to start leads, but now we were running out of time. We essentially had one day to get all the leads and vocals done, which we knew wasn’t realistic. More...

Immolation Posts New Studio Report

Immolation has posted a new studio blog on Decibel Magazine. Excerpts from the blog follow:

"It’s been a busy day here at the studio. It’s Wednesday night, and we have been hard at work all day. Our drummer Steve [Shalaty] just left a few hours ago, not really looking forward to the 8-hour drive back to his home in Ohio. He really did an amazing job and really had so much input not only in the drum department, but also in some of the arrangements, lyrics and in just lending his ear to make sure certain aspects of the guitar and bass parts flowed correctly over the drum parts. His playing on this record has just raised the bar for future Immolation albums, and I think it will be a welcome step up in our song dynamics that our fans will really enjoy!

"It’s my turn in the hot seat tonight. Bob [Vigna] and I have been trading off between guitar and bass rhythms since Monday. We have developed a routine over the last few days where Bob will start on the early side, usually between 10 and 11 in the morning (since I am not out of bed until 11 or 12), and then I will usually start tracking bass in the late afternoon. Today, I got started on the later side and managed to get through three songs by 8:30 in the evening, so now we have rhythms done to seven out of the ten songs. If all goes well, we should have rhythms all wrapped up by tomorrow evening and will be ready to start tracking vocals and leads. More...

Immolation Issues Recording Update

Immolation has issued the following update from the recording studio:

"Still moving forward here in the studio. Steve has finished up his drum tracks and we started guitars and bass between yesterday and today. Ross and Bob got their amp sounds set and got through some basic tracking, while Steve got a well deserved rest after pummeling his drum set for a week straight. Here are some more pictures from Millbrook Sound Studios. We'll have some more video up as soon as we can.

"Been making use of Paul's in studio bar after a few of the sessions. Paul has a vast array of hundreds of different beers, ....not to mention the special Belgian beer on tap, truly amazing! For now more tracking to come, but album number 8 is slowly starting to take shape! More to follow."

"Due to the fact that we are not real festival lovers or great fans of flying, the chances of us ever coming to the States for a one-off show was always very small. But after years of relentless emails from Ryan we've finally given in. It's hard to believe that it's been 14 years since we last played in the US, so we are very happy to announce that we are finally coming back. Bolt Thrower will be playing Maryland Deathfest VII, on May 22-24, 2009, at Sonar, Baltimore, MD."

Immolation Announce More European Tour Dates

On March 8th (Saturday) legendary New York- based IMMOLATION appeared on Metalmania Festival in Poland (Katowice, Spodek Hall). It was their warm-up show before the upcoming Shadows Of The Emissaries' Curse Tour 2008.

At the festival Immolation shared the stage with such metal monsters as MEGADETH, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN and SATYRICON. Two days later, March 10th in Prague the band teamed up with MELECHESH and SICKENING HORROR, to begin their regular European tour featuring 25 shows. America's GOATWHORE are joining the tour on March 14th in Trencin, Slovakia.

Unfortunately, the tour won't come to Stockholm (as was previously announced) due to lack of interest of local promoters. What a shame! The tour will last till April 6th. The last gig will take place in Warsaw, Poland.

Check out a tour trailer here. More...
