Chilean thrash band D1straught will enter the studio in August to start work on its debut album, and will abstain from performing live for the rest of 2012 to concentrate on the recording process. The working title of the full-length is "Money Equal Death," not to be confused with the three-song EP of the same title that D1straught released earlier this year. The band has about ten to twelve songs written, but has not revealed which ones it will be putting on the album. The production team will be a combination of experience and understanding. Lalo Guzman, guitarist of D1straught, commented:
"Its really cool to be able to work with people like Johnny Verdugo and Ricardo Martinez. They know what they are doing, and of course to be able to work with Mariano Pavez; all the work he has done in the past with Criminal and Dracma. We are sure we are going to get our own sound, it will be massive and aggressive."
