DESASTER have finished the songwriting process for their upcoming, sixth studio album “666 - Satans Soldiers Syndicate”. This time around the German black/thrashers will be heading over to Holland to record at Harrow’s Studios in Losser. “Bands like the legendary death metal gods ASPHYX and other fine bands like SOULBURN, OCCULT, MELECHESH and FLESH MADE SIN have recorded their albums in this studio. Quite a good selection of bands we’d say”, comments the band. The album will be mixed in June and DESASTER are looking into an August/September release.
“The new songs are a strict continuation of the last few albums, which means NO COMPROMISE! If you are expecting innovative, ambitious music you are 666 % wrong. DESASTER stands for traditional riff metal – thrashy, black and full of blasphemy!”
Song titles include a. o. 'Fade Forever Flesh', 'Razor Ritual', 'Hellbangers' and 'Tyrannizer'.
