Ephel Duath Issues Album Recording Update

The 6th full-length album from avant-garde metal band Ephel Duath will be released in spring 2013 via Agonia Records. The album title as well as album artwork have been set and will be revealed later this year.

The follow up to the "On Death and Cosmos" EP (reviewed here) will introduce a line-up change in the rhythmic section. All bass parts have already been recorded by Bryan Beller (Mike Keneally, Steve Vai, Dethklok, The Aristocrats, James La Brie, Dweezil Zappa) in replacement of Steve Di Giorgio. Marco Minnemann returns playing drums for Ephel Duath, which according to a press release "brings the creative relationship between drums and guitars to a dynamism never reached before by the band."

"Ephel Duath's new album is the musical statement I wish this band will be remembered for," comments Davide Tiso (founder/guitarist). "All I've learned or not learned musically, all I've always wanted my lyrics to be, live and breathe in these eight new songs. This album holds together all that Ephel Duath's music has touched in the last fifteen years and pushes its boundaries even further. I feel that a whole new expressive world is opening up to me and this band. My intent is to blindly follow this recent path and to bring Ephel Duath to higher and higher levels of intensity, riff after riff, song after song, with patience and obstinacy, an open heart and dedication."

In January Ephel Duath will enter Mana Recording Studios is St. Petersburg, Florida with producer Erik Rutan to record guitars and vocals and to mix the album. At the moment the band is busy putting the last touches on what will be the final guitars and vocals tracks. The band's current recording line-up is:

Karyn Crisis - vocals
Marco Minnemann - drums
Bryan Beller - bass
Davide Tiso - guitars
