Official press release: Brooklyn, NY's Mortals have entered the studio to record their full-length debut and first album for Relapse Records. The blackened sludge trio are working with Kevin Bernsten (Mutilation Rites, Magrudergrind, Pulling Teeth) at Baltimore's Developing Nations. The band previously worked with Bernsten on their self-released 2012 Death Ritual EP which is available for streaming via their Bandcamp page. Their upcoming full-length will see an early 2014 release. The band commented on the new material, saying: "There are more black metal and thrash influences on this album, but it still sounds like Mortals. This album represents a year's worth of writing, and we're excited to be in the studio and to get the material out there." Additionally, Mortals are currently booking a three-week U.S. and Canadian tour starting in late October. A full list of dates will be announced shortly.
