The release date of the new BILOCATE album, "Sudden Death Syndrome," has been set to July 6, 2008 in the UAE. The album will be distributed in the middle east region by DAXAR Music through Virgin megastores.

Visit the band's MySpace page to listen to "The Dead Sea," a track from "Sudden Death Syndrome," available for streaming.

The release dates for other territories will be announced soon.

"Sudden Death Syndrome" was mixed and mastered in Sweden by Jens Bogren at Fascination Street Studios, who is well known for his work with bands such as Opeth, Katatonia, Bloodbath, Amon Amarth, Symphony X and many more.

Jens commented on BILOCATE Album:
"Bilocate takes the qualities from the best epic death metal bands and blend it with their very own middle eastern touch, and out comes one of the most interesting metal bands I?ve heard for a long time You can hear that they put effort and thought in to every note and every scream!"

The vocals were recorded in Dubai at InTheMix Studios with Nash Planojevic, known for his previous work with Iron Maiden and Saxon.

Nash commented on the project:
"...refreshing, promising and definitely most tight project I ever done so far here in Dubai. On the other hand definitely most demanding task, guys know exactly what they want and that's the way to be!!! looking forward together with Jens and guys from Bilocate to open new horizons for the music coming from the region, and proof the fact that the good music lays deep down under the remains of Petra and sand dunes of futuristic Dubai!"

The artwork for the new album was done by Dennis Sibeijn, who has previously worked with bands such as Draconian, Chimaira and Aborted, and BILOCATE's new Logo is designed by Christophe Szpajdel (Emperor, Enthroned, Old Man's Child).

Christophe commented on Bilocate:
"This is one of the most original band I came across, providing me an enriching experience in my entire career as I am currently working on their logo. You can see three Bilocate logos on my gallery now. Amazing mixture of dark oriental metal with hints of death and black metal elegantly melt into each other.... What a shame this band was so underrated....this band is a gem and so nice people I would work for indefinitely."
