German symphonic death metal act Deadlock announced that the band will release its sixth full length LP "The Arsonist" on July 26, 2013 via Napalm Records. A trailer for the album and the artwork can be viewed below.

With their mix of Melodic Death Metal and elements from the world of pop the band has reached a new level of maturity and depth of details on "The Arsonist." The band did not shy away from orchestral sounds, choir elements or synth fragments, which will make “The Arsonist” a timeless piece of music.

Besides Sebastian Reichl, Benny Richter (e.g. Caliban/Moonspell) took his place behind the mixing console. The pounding fundament of the drums was laid down at the Chemical Burn Studios with Alexander Dietz (Heaven Shall Burn) at the helm. Eike Fresse (e.g. Callejon/OOMPH!/Gamma Ray) mixed the new songs at the Hammer Studios in Hamburg. Finishing and mastering touches were provided by Olman Viper (Caliban/Emil Bulls/ZSK) at the Hertzwerk Studios. The artwork was created by Niklas Sundin (Dark Tranquility)

The track list is as follows:

1. The Great Pretender
2. I'm Gone
3. Dead City Sleepers
4. The Arsonist
5. Darkness Divine
6. As We Come Undone
7. Hurt
8. The Final Storm
9. Small Town Boy (Bronski Beat-Cover)
10. My Pain
11. Dead City Sleepers (Erode-Remix)(Bonus Track)
12. As We Come Undone (Philip Abbas-Remix) (Bonus Track)
