Acrania Unveils New Album "An Uncertain Collision" Artwork, Track Listing

Mexican act Acrania has revealed the artwork for the band's upcoming album entitled “An Uncertain Collision,” which will be available worldwide on October 20th, 2012. The album was produced by J.C. Chávez and Luis Oropeza at “Circo Volador Studios” in Mexico City, and according to a press release, "explores a new range of Latin rhythms and instruments that had not been used in previous albums. Merengue, Puerto Rican bomba, cha cha cha, samba and 'plena,' are addressed in this new album, fused with the power of death metal and technical riffs, powerful drumming with unusual rythms within the genre, with growls and lyrics that address all kinds of human and spiritual passions."

The album’s artwork comes by the hand of Berlin-based artist & illustrator Eliran Kantor, who is known mostly for creating album covers for bands such as Testament, Sodom, Atheist, and Mekong Delta.

Eliran Kantor comments, “I wanted it to be about the emotion behind the music, about the colors and shapes I saw when listening to this music : the passion and the 'collision' are represented with the fire, hitting the water, the two symbols of eternity dancing above the skull as it represents mortality - the 'collision' comes from these contradictions. I wanted it to really reflect what the album is about, and how it sounds - without using too traditional elements but just hinting at them. The logo gets the idea across that this is a metal album and a metal band."

The album's track listing is:

01. Treason, Politics & Death
02. Deceive the Pain
03. Now
04. A Praise to Madness
05. Revolutions & Tequila
06. But not Today
07. Speartooth
08. Vallarta Nights
09. In my Land
