With nearly all instrumentation on the recording executed solely by Pete Morten, minus the drumming, The Interpreter flows with over fifty minutes of grand musicianship, expertly mixed and mastered by Rob Aubrey, a mainstay of Marillion’s camp for many years.”

Mind Affliction To Release New Album "Pathetic Humanity"

Polish black/death metal act Mind Affliction will be releasing new album “Pathetic Humanity” later this month through Metal Scrap Records. A track from the album, titled “Human Centipede,” can be heard in the player below.

The album was recorded during the summer of 2012 at 67 Studio in Giebultów and the material was mixed, mastered, and recorded by Dominik Burzym. Mind Affliction comments:

“‘Pathetic Humanity’ tells the story of human depravity and perversion. The record features mixed styles ranging from black metal to technical death, often filled with harmonics and even some doom metal elements. Two vocals together with two unique guitars tuned all the way down to C, all accompanied by brutal blast beats on drums, create an eerie, sometimes psychedelic, yet soothing atmosphere.”

“The Mayans were wrong, what a surprise! OK, since we’re not going anywhere just yet, we thought we’d do a little sum up of the last twelve months. We have quite a successful year behind us, lots of awesome gigs, including supporting Soulfly and Tim ‘Ripper’ Owens in Warsaw, a mini-tour with Anti Tank Nun, performances at Rock Stars Festival, River of Booze, Radio Revolta Fest, the return of the Night of the Living Rock ‘brand’… Happy happy joy joy.

“The New Year should be exciting as well – at this moment we’re almost done with recording guitars for our sophomore album which we hope will get released in the 1st half of 2013. It’s gonna be bigger, heavier and better – this we can promise. We’re also cooking up quite a surprise in the concert department but shush for now…

“So all in all we’d like to thank everyone who made sure that 2012 was so easy on us. And we’d like to wish everyone a happy holiday and a brutal hangover on January 1st. See you all in 2013!”
