Savage Messiah To Enter The Recording Studio

Savage Messiah has confirmed plans to enter the studio on July 1st to begin recording an as-yet untitled new studio album.

The band will be working on the follow-up to 2012’s “Plague of Conscience” with producer Scott Atkins (Sylosis, Behemoth) at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk. Savage Messiah frontman Dave Silver comments:

“We’re beyond excited to be fast approaching the day when we’ll head off back into Grindstone Studios, to work once more with Scott Atkins on what we can promise will be the most metal Savage Messiah CD yet! We’ve approached the writing process in a totally old school manner; just four guys in a rehearsal space getting a vibe going, playing heavy metal! Which has really allowed us to express the chemistry within the band and build on the musical foundation we laid with ‘Plague of Conscience’.

“We’re pleased to be working with Scott Atkins for the third time, as he understands the band and has always delivered above and beyond for us and we’ve no doubt that he’ll get the best out of us once again. We’ll be releasing titles, track listings, artwork etc. in due course. In the meantime, look out for plenty of studio video updates which we’ll be posting over at our official YouTube channel. So stay tuned!”
