Akurion Recording Debut Album

Montreal-based Akurion has begun recording a long-awaited debut album. Vocalist Mike DiSalvo (ex-Cryptopsy) had this to say about the recording process:

“All the base tracks from the four of us are gonna be recorded live with only some overdubs added after the fact. We wanted a real earthy and deep sound from the inception of this project and we feel that jamming the tunes live in our room together, we will be able to capture the best feel and performance of these songs.”

The band entered the studio on April 14th with Alex Hebert (Ages, Empire De Mu). The album will be mixed by John Strieder of Magma Studios and will feature the great metal voices of Lord Worm (ex-Cryptopsy), Luc Lemay (Gorguts), and Jean-Marie Leblanc (Vengeful) as guest appearances.

Look for the upcoming new album to be released by the end of the year. Akurion’s base lineup consists of:

Mike DiSalvo – Vocals (Coma Cluster Void/Fireside Sessions/ex-Cryptopsy/ex-Infestation)
Rob Milley – Guitars (Neuraxis/Phobocosm(live)/Fireside Sessions/Torn Within)
Oli Pinard – Bass (Cryptopsy/Neuraxis/Vengeful)
Tommy McKinnon – Drums (Conflux/Ages/Empire De Mu/ex-Neuraxis/ex-Augury)

Within The Ruins Announces “Phenomena” Album

New England outfit Within The Ruins has announced the release of fourth LP “Phenomena,” due out July 22nd, 2014. The new effort will be the followup to the “Elite” full-length released early last year.

“We took six months off over the winter too eat, sleep and breath this album. It was by far the most in depth we’ve ever gone in the writing process. ” says guitarist Joe Cocchi.

Within the Ruins recently posted a studio report with Gear Gods that sheds more light on the blood, sweat and tears the band has poured into this release. Check it out below.

Cocchi continues, “Since the inception of this band our attitude has always been to completely trump our previous efforts in every aspect, and I think we did just that. We’re beyond stoked for people to hear this one.”
