Immolation - Recording New Album

Immolation have entered Millbrook Sound Studios in New York with longtime producer Paul Orofino to begin recording their Nuclear Blast Records debut, and eighth overall album. The band checked in from the studio today to offer the following details and update:

"Today we have begun the recording process for our eighth full-length release. Once again we have entered Millbrook Sound Studios in upstate Millbrook, New York and will start tracking with Paul Orofino tomorrow. This will be our sixth time visiting Millbrook Studios and we are really looking forward to the whole process.

The new album will contain ten songs of the strongest material we have ever written. The new material is more violent and aggressive, with fast sections that take us to a new level of speed and intensity, while complementing the dark and sullen heavier moments. There are plenty of miserable and militant movements to please the die hard and new Immolation fans alike.

We've spent the past two months rehearsing and fine tuning the songs so that all ten are stand-outs and create a complete listening experience. Needless to say, we are all very pleased and enthusiastic about the new material and are anxious to debut it to the fans.

Following the recording process here in Millbrook, we have decided to try something new for the mixing process, so we have enlisted the talents of Zack Ohren (Decrepit Birth, Suffocation, All Shall Perish). We are confident he will do an excellent job in giving a fresh new life to the Immolation sound.

We are still in the process of getting ideas together for the album's concept and cover art, but these final details will be worked out in the near future."

Immolation - New Album On The Way

Official press release:

Death metal stalwarts Immolation are currently fine-tuning the tracks for their much-anticipated new album. The band is currently holed up at drummer Steve Shalaty's house in Ohio prepping their new material, which is shaping up to be very aggressive and much more intense than their past work. The group will make their way over to Millbrook, NY by week's end to meet with Paul Orofino, the band's producer for their last four records, at Millbrook Sound Studios.

Robert Vigna (guitars) describes his thoughts on the new material: "We are really excited. The songs are shorter but pack more of a punch. They kick you hard right from the start and leave you pummeled by the end! It's definitely a darker, meaner album. I think the fans are going to go apeshit when they hear these tracks."

Ross Dolan (vocals, bass) further states: "The new stuff definitely has a very dark feel but does not let up on the heaviness or intensity at all. There is a hint of both the last two records in the new songs, but they are coming from a completely different approach. They are going to knock you on your ass!"

Immolation will head to Amsterdam directly after wrapping up in the studio to play the Arnhem Metal Meeting Festival with Arch Enemy. They will immediately proceed to Paris to shoot a new video for the upcoming album. The disc is tentatively set for a spring release through Century Media Records; look for the band to tour the U.S. around that same time.

Immolation has been assaulting God's black earth for the past 17 years. Along with bands like Suffocation, Incantation and Mortician, Immolation are one of the all important forefathers of New York death metal. Over the years, Immolation has always increased the stakes on each release and this new effort is no exception. It encompasses all the band's growth over the years and offers some of their most devastating material yet. Not only has the band developed their musical capabilities over the years, but they've also become one of the most intense live acts in the industry. Powerful, yet emotional, Immolation are a force to be reckoned with.
