The Australian technical death metal outfit, Psycroptic, has announced that its fifth studio album, The Inherited Repression, will hit stores on February 7th in North America and February 10th in Europe. The upcoming nine-track full-length will mark the band's second release on Nuclear Blast Records.
Psycroptic will be joined by guest vocalist Zdenek Simecek (Godless Truth) on their upcoming US tour with Nile, Ex Deo, Keep Of Kalessin and Pathology. Vocalist Jason Peppiatt will be unable to join the band on the tour due to the imminent arrival of his newborn son.
"A month or so after we confirmed the US tour I was greeted with the excellent news that I would be a new father, halfway through the tour no less," commented Peppiatt. "Since I could not miss the birth, and I couldn't exactly drive from the US to Tasmania, I talked it through with the rest of the guys and decided to ask Zdenek in to fill for the last tour of the Ob(servant) album for me. Zdenek has been a long time friend of the band and is a super talented vocalist, so I'm happy to have him in my shoes for this run. I'll be working hard demoing the new material while at home (as well as changing nappy's), and I'll see you all in 2011!"

The clip was directed by James Harmsworth of Express Media Productions and it reaches almost eight minutes in length. The song comes off Psycroptic's fourth album, "Ob(Servant)", which entered the AIR chart (Australian Independent Recordings) at position No.7.
A new Psycroptic track called "Ob(Servant)" is available for streaming on the band's official MySpace. The song is the title cut of the group's new album, "Ob(Servant)", which is scheduled for release in Europe on September 26th and in North America on October 14th via Nuclear Blast Records.
Psycroptic's record label Nuclear Blast have announced the following about the band's new album:
"The new album and Nuclear Blast debut, (Ob)Servant, by Tasmanian Tech Death Metallers Psycroptic will include a free bonus DVD featuring a studio diary as well as full live shows of their 2006 gig in Amsterdam, Netherlands and Wellington, New Zealand, 2008. The free bonus DVD will run about 85 minutes in total. (Ob)Servant will be released on September 26th as CD/DVD and will be on sale for the price of a regular CD".
Psycroptic have officially announced the title of their follow-up to 2006's Symbols of Failure. Ob(Servant), the band's first album for Nuclear Blast Records and fourth overall, will be released sometime in late 2008. Ob(Servant) was mixed and mastered by former Machine Head and Soulfly guitarist Logan Mader and recorded once again by guitarist Joe Haley.
Drummer Dave Haley commented on their upcoming release: "'Ob(Servant)' is definitely our finest hour (well, finest 49 minutes and 49 seconds anyway). It's of course a cliché of every band to say that their newest album is their best and so on, but we are very proud of what we have done on this album. The writing process was a little different for this album, with Joe (guitarist) writing pretty much all the material. This gives the album a very cohesive and flowing feel, and this album is definately our most diverse material thus far. The artwork is also amazing, having been completed by Raymand Swanland (Deeds Of Flesh). Those not familiar with his work should check it out - you will be amazed!"
