AVULSED is ready to hit the studios next week to record their long awaited 6th full length in the band’s career which will be called “Ritual Zombi” (yes, written in Spanish), title that was already announced exactly two years ago, which will be a conceptual work only dealing with zombies and its various aspects.
The album will contain 9 new songs plus a cover song of DEATH’s “Zombie Ritual” as a tribute to the band that started it all for the real Death Metal sound (with permission from POSSESSED, of course!!). There will be also three instrumental songs (intro, interlude & outro) and this will be the first recording featuring new drummer Osckar Bravo.
Recording & production will take place in Madrid at La Casa del Ruido Studios by Dani Blanco & AVULSED during February/ March and later will be mixed in Barcelona at Moontower Studios by Javi Félez. Then it’ll be finally mastered in Sweden at Unisound Studios by mastermind Dan Swanö. Cover artwork will be done by Juanjo Castellano, who did a superb work for the latest PUTREVORE album and this made it clear for the band that he’d be the perfect choice to conceive the most putrid transcription of the band’s sound.
“Ritual Zombi” promises to be the strongest album of the band, gathering all elements that made AVULSED’s style over two decades, a respected force with thousands of diehard fans around the world, which for sure won’t be disappointed with this new work, that will be another step in the band’s fight to keep the true spirit of Death Metal, free of clichés, labels & trends, staying loyal to what the band has been playing since day one back in 1991, which is: DEATH METAL (in bold letters!!).
The band will be capturing on video all the recording process and will be posting clips every week at the band’s official Facebook page.
The release of “Ritual Zombi” is scheduled for June 2013 and until then, AVULSED will keep playing very few and selected festivals, after which, they’ll start to present the new album, with a highlight at the release party in Madrid, which will be a special festival called RITUAL ZOMBI FEST. In October 12th together with some legendary and exclusive bands (both European & Spanish) that will be announced in the coming weeks, stay tuned at their Facebook as well!!
