Maldives-based death/black metallers NOTHNEGAL have entered Vakaruge Studio in Malé to begin recording their as-yet-untitled second album. The follow-up to 2012’s “Decadence” is being produced by Matt Hyde (SLIPKNOT, MACHINE HEAD, AS I LAY DYING), with vocal production by Paul Reeve, who co-produced five tracks on MUSE’s acclaimed debut album, “Showbiz”. Additional production/engineering will be handled by longtime NOTHNEGAL producer Mohamed Shamheed. NOTHNEGAL’s longtime guitarist Fufu will not be part of the recording of the new CD, but remains a member of the band. Chippe (SERENITY DIES) will be filling in for Fufu on the album, which will mark the first NOTHNEGAL recording since vocalist Affan joined the band as an official member (Affan made a guest appearance on NOTHNEGAL’s last album, “Decadence”).
