Abiotic Start Recording Forthcoming Metal Blade Debut


I don’t know about you folks, but when I shit, I need to read. It could be a magazine, a book, the back of a toothpaste tube…something, anything. I like to read and drop anchor, and always have.

After finishing my most recent bathroom book (Albert Camus’ “The Stranger”), I started a book I had bought years ago and forgot about: “Pygmy,” by one of my favorite authors, Chuck Palahniuk.

This has nothing to do with Abiotic, who are now recording — but I need to vent.

I am curious as to whether any of you folks have been able to get through this book, because 13 pages in, I am finding myself extremely perturbed. The book is completely written in the voice of a foreign exchange student, hell-bent on terrorism, and is written in broken English. So, it’s extremely hard to follow.

I am thinking of abandoning ship. Should I? Or should I keep reading? I just want to know if its worth it.

So, Abiotic — who just signed with Metal Blade — entered Sonic Assault Studios in Cape Coral, Florida, on April 23 with producer Charles J and engineer Phil Pluskota to begin recording their debut album for a late 2012 release.

The band announced that the cover artwork for the LP will be created by Daniel McBride.

    It’s not one of his best, to be honest, but it’s worth persevering to the end. It carries on his tradition of slipping in a host of random shit early on that only makes sense in light of how it all ends up.
