Evocation Issues Studio Update

Swedish death metal band EVOCATION are currently working on their new album. The band has finished the recordings a few weeks ago. Guitarist Marko comments about the recordings shortly before Thomas did his vocals:

“Everything was progressing just as we planned! For the drums we had some amazing help this time – Roberto Laghi (Producer for In Flames etc.). And the result - well to be honest I haven’t ever heard such an amazing drum sound… Prepare to be blown away… Same goes for the guitars and the bass as well – the sound has progressed and is more evil than ever! Next up to get to work is Thomas (vocals). After having heard his ideas for the vocal patterns together with the songs we all feel very confident that this album will become by far our strongest achievement up to date. It might sound like a cliché but trust me and wait until the album is released…”

At the moment the band is busy mixing and mastering the material. "Apocalyptic" will be released in late October/early November. More...
