Belgian thrashers AFTER ALL have tapped Swedish producer Dan Swanö to mix and master their new album, set for release on March 23 through Roadrunner Records. Swanö also worked on AFTER ALL‘s last album. “Cult Of Sin” (2009), and the band’s two EP releases, “Betrayed By The Gods” (2010) and “Becoming The Martyr”(2011).
“As these releases led to the deal with Roadrunner, it was a no-brainer to get Dan on board again”, commented AFTER ALL guitarist Dries Van Damme. Dan Swanö will mix and master the new AFTER ALL album at the infamous Unisound Studios in Örebro, Sweden.
In related news, legendary illustrator Ed Repka is currently finishing the artwork for AFTER ALL‘s forthcoming album. “Ed is a metal legend”, said Dries Van Damme. “His artwork is what added extra greatness to our favourite releases of bands such as MEGADETH, EVIL DEAD, TOXIK, NUCLEAR ASSAULT, DEATH, and many others from the 1980s thrash scene. We’re absolutely psyched to work with Ed on the concept and the design of the artwork.”
AFTER ALL‘s new album is set for release on March 23. The as-yet-untitled record will be the band’s eighth full studio album. AFTER ALL described the new songs as both the heaviest and the most versatile of their long-running career.
AFTER ALL is confirmed as direct support to NWOBHM legends ANGEL WITCH at their Belgian show on March 16 at JH Nijdrop in Opwijk.
