Blatant Disarray, the Raleigh based thrash metal band, is set to release second full-length album, “The Harbinger,” on May 13th, 2014 via new label home Dirt Records.
“The Harbinger” will be available for pre-sale here starting on April 2nd, along with the release of the first single “There Will Be Pain."
The new album was recorded at Mike Schaefer’s own studio, Schaefer Sound Productions, in Raleigh, NC from March 2013 to January 2014. Over that 11 month time period, Schaefer personally produced, engineered, and mixed the record.
When asked about the decision to take such a large role in the production process Schaefer said: “I’m not sure if I recommend it to be honest. There were a number of times throughout the process when I thought it was just a bad, bad idea and I should really be paying someone else to do this. In music, nothing is ever perfect. You have to be willing to let it go at some point and be happy with what you’ve captured. That can be tough when you wear so many hats. Now that it’s done, I am very happy we chose to do it this way. It has definitely been a great experience.”
“The Harbinger” shows a progression in the band’s sound, due in part to the addition of two new members during the writing process for the album: drummer Trey McLamb and bassist Patrick Strickland. A number of special guest performances push this new sound even further, including guest vocals by Reed Mullin of Corrosion of Conformity on “Arise” and “Born in a Body Bag.” More...
