German death metallers Abythic have just signed a contract with Xtreem Music for the release of their next album, the second in their career, which is currently being mixed and will be released after this summer.
Abythic's new album will be titled Conjuring the Obscure and was recorded at the Flashback Recordings studios under the direction of T.S. (who is also drummer in Suffocate Bastard).
This is what Abythic guitarist MDB says about Conjuring the Obscure:
"This new album is divided into four chapters. For each chapter, a different singer sings; with each chapter, the whole equipment was changed; with each chapter, we play a different style. In chapter 1, we play more classic Swedish-styled death metal very inspired by old Grave (You'll Never See… era); in chapter 2, we play more Finnish-styled death metal like old Belial, Demigod etc; in chapter 3, we switch back to Sweden…but this time, more into death/black metal very inspired by Necrophobic; and on the 4th chapter, we are very inspired by US death metal like old Deicide and Malevolent Creation (The Fine Art of Murder era). So, we have a very dynamic album with a lot of surprises.
I think we created something unique in this genre, especially by changing the styles and productions within the album. T.S. is also the drummer on this Abythic album. Normally, I played drums in the past, but this time, I'm playing all guitars on this. On the previous releases, I also wrote the whole material for the band. On this new Abythic album, you will find members from bands like Reckless Manslaughter, Selfdevoured, Anam, ex-Ingurgitating Oblivion, and Suffocate Bastard."
The new Abythic logo has been made by the legendary Belgian artist Christophe Szpajdel, while the cover art has been painted by Jenglot Hitam.
More details about the album will be revealed when the mixing is finished during this summer. In the meantime, you can hear their previous album HERE. For more info, consult the links blow.
