Vital Remains prepares new album
Thursday, October 26, 2006 7:11 PM PT
Official press release:
Extreme metal titans Vital Remains recently wrapped up their touring campaign for Dechristianize with a successful run alongside Dismember, labelmates Grave, Demiricous and Withered. This trek also capped off an extremely busy year which saw them tour the U.S. four times, further solidifying their status as one of the genre's hardest-working acts. The group will now focus on completing their much-anticipated new album before heading into the studio with the renowned Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Goatwhore) early next year. This effort marks the group's second recording with Glen Benton (Deicide) on vocals, and promises to be their most blasphemous and devastating offering yet.
Tony Lazaro (guitars) checks in with the following report: "So our tour with the Swedes Dismember and Grave has come to an end. We had a killer time out there and want to thank all the bands we shared the stage with. Thanks to all the metal fans that came out in support! It was great to go out on one more tour before we lock ourselves up in the practice space and finish witting the album. St. Pete, FL was a great stop as we got to hang out with Trey from Morbid Angel. A big thanks to him for coming out to the show and hanging out all night at the Hard Rock Cafe drinking until the sun came up.
"The mighty Erik Rutan took Dave Suzuki (guitars) and I up to visit his studio, Mana Recording. The place is so nice, and the gear they have is awesome! We can't wait to record our new album down there; it's going to be sick! With Rutan, Benton, Suzuki and me locked in a studio for a month, there's not enough holy water to wash away the mess we are going to make."

I am so sick of bands like Vital Remains preaching all of the "Jesus is good" stuff. If I wanted to hear that, Id go to church. Glen Burton is a gay.
