Maryland death metallers Dying Fetus have entered the studio to record their new full-length album. The band will be working with longtime producer Steve Wright (Slipknot, Misery Index) at Wrightway Studios in Baltimore, MD.
The as-yet-untitled album is set to be released in mid 2012 via Relapse Records. It will feature nine tracks and is a “return to roots” with production focused slightly more on slam than on the band’s last few works. Thematically, the album is set to be a good old-fashioned piece of social and political commentary in the style of Dying Fetus.
Dying Fetus guitarist and vocalist John Gallagher had this to say about the album: “The last album had some groove in it but [it] was basically a lot of tech; this one is a return to form of older DYING FETUS albums, so to speak- more modern production though, of course. Everything’s tight…the sound is crushing, the drums are amazing”.
An official release date and album title will be announced shortly.
