“We could not be more excited about becoming part of the beast that is Relapse Records. To be amongst so many bands that inspired us, as well as so many friends, is something truly killer. Our forthcoming LP promises to be the most devastating material we have conjured to date. We have sunken days, months, years, and LAVA into these songs and we think it will undoubtedly show.”

Voivod Begins Recording First Full Length New Album In Five Years

Canadian progressive thrash veterans Voivod has announced via a short post on Facebook that they have today entered the studio to begin recording a new album. The message, which simply read: “It is with great enthousiasm that we announce that Voivod is entering the Studio today for the next full length album! Exciting! Stay connected!” means that this will be the band’s first full length album since 2013’s, “Target Earth.” The gap has been filled in the meantime with the 2016 EP, “Post Society,” which comprised of songs released as split singles with Entombed A.D., Napalm Death and At The Gates, as well as a cover of the Hawkwind classic, “Silver Machine” and the title track.

In an interview with Rock Sverige earlier this year, drummer Michel Langevin (AKA, Away) stated that the new record would be a concept album and that it could very likely also be a double album, given the lengths of some of the songs. No further details have been confirmed as of yet.

New Album Recordings Underway As Graveshadow Enteres Studio

Recently completing a west coast run of shows with Russia’s Arkona and Norway’s Sirenia, Sacramento’s Graveshadow – a male-backed symphonic metal band that incorporates doom, thrash and Goth metal influences – has entered the studio to begin recording the sophomore album and debut for M-Theory Audio.

The band settled into The Captains Quarters in Ventura, California with producer (and Night Demon guitarist) Armand John Anthony.

“The idea came to record with Armand while we were on tour with Night Demon. I got to talking with him and he showed me some of his production work,” explains Graveshadow guitarist Will Walker. “What we really want to accomplish on this album is more of a raw and organic sound while still maintaining the symphonic elements of the music. It was a natural fit. The gear, the room, everything is working out to realize exactly what we were looking for. Armand is an absolute joy to work with and we feel he’s really helping us make this the best it can be.”

Recording will continue over the month of July with plans to release in early 2018 via the new deal with M-Theory Audio. Stay tuned for updates.
