Wednesday, June 13, 2012 12:25 PM PT / 3,123 views

Official press release: Virginia-based melodic tech-death metal masters, Arsis, started tracking drums for their fifth full-length release on June 7th with new drummer/longtime session member, Shawn Priest. The album is being tracked at Audiohammer Studios in FL with producer Mark Lewis (The Black Dahlia Murder, Whitechapel, Deicide). The follow up to their 2010 release Starve For The Devil is tentatively scheduled for Fall 2012 release via Nuclear Blast Records. "I am so pleased with the way this album is coming together," commented founding guitarist and vocalist James Malone. "I know we all have put ourselves into this recording and I am sure this will be reflected in the end product. Noah and I did more pre-production for the album than any other Arsis recording, Now, I just have to remember all the parts I tracked for the demos." Bassist Noah Martin added: "Shawn's in the thick of tracking drums right now. We lost a little bit of time because of a tropical storm but wasn't too detracting. The album art is in the works as well as attaining the rights for the bonus track. If all goes as planned we'll have an seriously-fucking-filthy album to show for the past few months of effort." Shawn Priest continued: "Seven songs down, and four to go. The drums sound amazing raw, so I can't even imagine how they will sound after Mark impregnates them with his producer juice."
