Montreal extreme metallers, DESPISED ICON, have started work on their new album, due later this year via Century Media Records.

Vocalist Alex Erian comments, "We're done writing and the new shit is packed with brutality. Can't wait to play these songs live! As always, our longtime buddy Yannick St-Amand will produce the whole thing and we got Zeuss and Alan Douches to take care of the mixing and mastering, so the result should sound monstrous! Our boy Felix Rancourt, the evil mastermind behind all our imagery, promised us his sickest album artwork to date."

To keep you updated on the recording process, Despised Icon launches weekly webisodes on their MySpace page. You can also see the videos here:
