Florida-based blackened death metal band INFERNAEON has inked a deal with Los Angeles-based Prosthetic Records. Boasting former members of Monstrosity, INFERNAEON's debut record, A Symphony of Suffering, will see a March release and features guest vocal appearances from Ben Falgoust (Soilent Green, Goatwhore) and Keith DeVito (Obituary, Suffocation, Catastrophic). Mastering duties were handled by Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, ex-Morbid Angel). Tracks were initially laid down for A Symphony of Suffering in late 2006 at Home Land Studios in Highland Beach, Fla. with producer Zach Brown.
Having already shared the stage with Malevolent Creation, Deeds of Flesh and Vile among others, INFERNAEON has already been making a name for themselves in Florida and throughout the States with a brash, memorable stage show mixing theatrical murder and make up effects provided by Universal Studios. Three tracks from INFERNAEON's forthcoming record are available on the band's MySpace page, including "Oracle of Armageddon," the first song in an album-ending trilogy focusing on an oracle who amasses prophetic powers from the dying.
Artwork, tracklisting and a release date for A Symphony of Suffering will be available shortly.
CATASTROPHIC, featuring Trevor Peres of OBITUARY, will be performing at Ritual in Levittown, NY on Saturday, December 3rd.
Legendary Florida death metallers OBITUARY are in the process of reforming with a view towards releasing a new CD in late 2004 or early 2005. "[Drummer] Donald [Tardy], [guitarist] Allen [West] and I have been working on some new stuff and are thinking about a new album," singer John Tardy told BLABBERMOUTH.NET. "We are just getting started and I know [Donald] has talked to [ex-OBITUARY guitarist] Trevor [Peres] about it, too. Right now we have no timeline or record deal set up, but we are writing songs. If all goes well, [the reunion] would be with all 'original' members [John, Donald, Allen, Trevor and bassist Frank Watkins]."
Although the reformed OBITUARY would likely perform select live shows before and after the recording of a new studio album, there is no truth to the reports that the band will make an appearance at the Sun N' Steel festival in Tampa in early March. "I don't know anything about a Sun N' Steel show...never heard of it," John said.
Formed in 1984 as EXECUTIONER (later shortened to XECUTIONER), OBITUARY are widely considered to be one of the most influential and groundbreaking bands in the death metal genre. After releasing several successful albums in the late Eighties/early Nineties (including the classic 1989 debut "Slowly We Rot" and its equally punishing 1990 follow-up, "Cause of Death"), the band announced their breakup, with John Tardy's disinterest in touring apparently a major factor, according to the Internet heavy metal encyclopedia BNR Metal Pages. Trevor Peres has since started CATASTROPHIC, while Donald Tardy joined Andrew W.K.'s band some time ago.
