Oligarquia Reveals New Album Details

Brazilian metal act Oligarquia recorded the new album "Distilling Hatred" at Top Noise studio, and the band also commented on the recording process:

"The highlight is that the mastering was done by legendary producer Ciero in his equally legendary Da Tribo studio. We wanted an extreme sound to this album and nobody knows how to make a sound just as good as Ciero.

"Another highlight is the controversial cover, created by artist Felipe Eregion from Mysterian of Art. With the search for an extreme sound, wanted a strong cover to complete the theme of the album, I believe we have achieved this aim!"

The band also commented on the album's delay: "The release was postponed several times due to sponsorship problems and changes in the line-up at the time of recording, this time is about to leave in fact! Our largest sponsorship is the company Frigocenter we only have to be giving thanks on this great force for the band. Oligarquia has always been a totally independent band, with its ideology and views on the music market, which is prostituted. Because several absurd proposals that the band received from record companies, we decided to wait a little longer to get sponsorship and then run the CD independently."

A teaser trailer for the album can be viewed below, with the track listing available after the jump.
