Psycroptic - New Album Details

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!"

The cover artwork can be seen here.

He goes on to say: "It's a mixture of everything we have done, as well as adding in new elements to continue the progression we are on as a band. No point releasing the same album twice, right? Like "Symbols of Failure", Joe engineered the album, but this time we enlisted the help of metal guru Logan Mader to mix and master the album...and that was probably the best decision we have ever made. The album sounds huge! Since we are currently on the amazing Summer Slaughter tour in the US at the moment, we had been receiving mixes while on the road. After our LA show Logan took myself and Joe to his Dirty Icon studio and put the finishing touches on the mix. Huge is one word for the sound he achieved."

Well yeah the cover artwork looks excellent and the way they're poised these days what with their signing with Nuclear Blast, they're in a position to be making some killer material.
