Opprobrium Reveals "Mandatory Evac" Tracklisting And Details

Legendary Death/thrash metal band OPPROBRIUM (formerly known as Incubus from Louisiana, USA) is readying their brand new album, "Mandatory Evac" (2008), their follow up new album in 8 years, after "Discerning Forces" (2000/2008 Metal Mind Productions/Nuclear Blast Records).

As previously reported, as part of the recent deal with Metal Mind Productions, the label will re-release the band's earlier albums, "Beyond the Unknown" (1990) and "Serpent Temptation" (1998), both remastered and in a new digipak edition, each limited to 2000 copies, along with Opprobrium's brand new record "Mandatory Evac" (2008) which was available only via the Internet. Opprobrium's album from 2000 - "Discerning Forces" – was re-released by Metal Mind Productions in late June 2008.

The release date of above titles is scheduled for: 3rd November (Poland), 10th November (Europe) and 20th January 2009 (USA).

"Mandatory evac" is another onslaught master piece album by OPPROBRIUM, which remains true to their brutal, yet technical death/thrash metal album. "Mandatory Evac" features 12 new songs. The title track of their new album "Mandatory Evac" tells the experience the band lived during the devastating hurricane Katrina in August 2005, which destroyed their home state of Louisiana. Every song of the album deals with real life scenarios in which the human race struggles to live everyday. Different from their previous album, the band stayed away from the spiritual subjects that the band is well known for and decided to do something completely different, touching on very emotional subjects such as orphans to the very torments in the mind that each of us human beings that hunt us daily.

Recorded in Tampa, Florida during the months of July and August of 2008, "Mandatory Evac" was produced by the band themselves, like their 1988 debut album "Serpent Temptation." In the studio they shot for a live type of recording in order to stay brutal and true to the band sound, and in order for fans to listen to a different type of sound that makes even the drum acoustics sound the way it was meant to be. Moyses took his time with his drum sound, not using any trigger or samples on it.

"Mandatory Evac" will be available on 10th November 2008 in Europe and 20th January 2009 in USA (via MVD). You can hear a preview track , "Fake," on Metal Mind Production's Myspace site.
