California thrash outfit Warbringer will be entering a recording studio on April 18 to begin tracking their next album for Century Media Records. The effort will be produced by Steve Evetts (who has worked with Dillinger Escape Plan and Sepultura).
“Our goal with this record is to make something beyond a run-of-the-mill metal CD,” says guitarist John Laux. “The most difficult challenge is always finding just the right balance between a raw, aggressive sound and modern production standards. We chose Evetts to produce, aside from his extensive resume, because he aims for very organic and bold sounds. His experience in bringing the best out from a wide variety from musicians across different genres of music can be seen in his credits and this speaks for itself.”
Laux had even more to say about the sessions for the new album, but there’s no word yet on when the disc may hit stores.
“Musically and thematically I feel confident that this will be respected as our most mature offering to date,” says Laux. “I am really proud of all the elements of extreme metal we have been able to incorporate into the songs. There is weight and purpose behind the lyrics and most importantly we have had time to put a lot of thought and care into the music.”
