Spanish Thrash Metallers ANGELUS APATRIDA never rest! Only two days after the last show of their extensive ‘Clockwork Tour’, the band entered Ultrasound Studios in Moita, Portugal, together with producer Daniel Cardoso (Anathema, Anneke Van Giersbergen, etc) and sound engineer Hugo Andrade, with whom they already previously worked for their much lauded “Clockwork” album, which marked the band’s first release on Century Media Records.
This new album will be released sometime before the summer of 2012 and still doesn’t have a title, but some details started surfacing already: ANGELUS APATRIDA are recording 10 new tracks and 2 additional songs for bonus use. Some of the songtitles are “It’s Rising!”, “You Are Next”, “Blood On The Snow”, “Violent Dawn” and “Still Corrupt”. They will also record a special cover track and the artwork for the album will again be done by Brazilian artist Gustavo Sazes (Arch Enemy, Firewind, The Crown, etc.), who’s currently finishing the last details.
Guillermo Izquierdo (guitars and vocals) stated about the new songs as follows: “We are working on an album that’s gonna be, without any shade of doubt, our most mature material. This time we have been able to do a pre-production of the whole record with Daniel Cardoso and it turned out to add a fresher taste in both the music and vocal melodies.”
ANGELUS APATRIDA recently escaped from studio’s routine on the night of Dec 9th to play a gig in Moita’s Live Caffé that also helped testing the new material on-stage. Highlights of the recently finished ‘Clockwork Tour’ include several runs of headlining shows in Spain, national support for Slayer and Megadeth as well as two European tours with Skeletonwitch / Warbringer and then the “Bonecrusher Tour 2011” with Dying Fetus, Keep Of Kalessin, Carnifex and many others.
