So far, there’s only a European release date for the new one from Swedish death metal veterans Vomitory — the band’s eighth studio album, Opus Mortis VIII, will drop April 26 through Metal Blade.
The CD was produced, engineered and mixed by Rikard Löfgren at his Leon Music Studios and is said to be “the best-sounding Vomitory album ever!” Let’s hope.
“Opus Mortis VIII is our eighth album (no shit!) — our eighth Opus of Death,” says drummer Tobias Gustafsson. “And I dare to say that this is one of the strongest albums we’ve done, and it most certainly has the most powerful production we’ve ever had on any album, hands down.
“For the third time, we worked with Rikard Löfgren in his Leon Music Studios. We raised the bar quite a few notches in the studio — both production-wise and performance-wise, and we couldn’t be happier with the result. We are not breaking new death metal ground with this album — that was never Vomitory’s mission — but Opus Mortis VIII offers diversity and dynamics that you haven’t quite heard from Vomitory before. Still, this is a very intense and aggressive album in the true Vomitory tradition — all the essential signature details are there. Once you hear the opening track, ‘Regorge In The Morgue,’ you will need no further proof of that!”
