Official press release:
West Virginia's Byzantine are currently in the studio finishing recording for the band's upcoming full-length, "Oblivion Beckons." Mixing will take place at Highview Studios by Drew Mazurek and the album will be mastered by Alan Douches at West West Side Music and the album will see a late-summer release.
"The record is coming along really well," commented bassist Skip Cromer. "The sound is really good, we tried some redneck experiments to get some slamming tones and they ended up working. The majority of the songs definitely fall into the trash vein of things."
Byzantine recently took a short break from recording with producer Charles A. Fisher in Sissonville, WV to join up with God Forbid, Arsis, Goatwhore and Mnemic for a brief trek throughout the eastern US. The band is currently scheduling summer touring plans, including an appearance at Milwaukee Metalfest, Columbus’ Independence Fest and Uprising Fest 2007 in Connecticut as well regional headlining shows.
