Swedish death/black metallers APOSTASY will enter the studio on March 30 to begin recording their fourth album for a late 2012 release. The drums will be laid down at Studio Seven Studio with Ronny Milianowicz at the helm.
APOSTASY‘s third album, “Nuclear Messiah”, was released last August 24 via Gothenburg, Sweden’s Rambo Music, a division of Gain Music Entertainment (which is distributed and partly owned by Sony Music).
Vocalist Fredric Edin previously stated about “Nuclear Messiah”, “It’s been a rocky road for us when we lost [guitarist] Henrik [Johansson], but now we are stronger than ever and can guarantee you folks that this will surely be the most brutal and most technical we have ever made, so what I want to say is: We don’t slow down like everybody else does, we just accelerate and make it more brutal. It is worth waiting for!”
APOSTASY made national headlines in Sweden in 2006 when the group’s guitarist, Henrik Johansson, was stabbed to death by his girlfriend. At 3:55 a.m. on March 9, 2006, the 19-year-old woman dialed 112 (the Swedish equivalent of 911 in the U.S. or 999 in the U.K.) and said that her boyfriend was lying bleeding on the floor in the couple’s apartment in Kramfors, Sweden. When the paramedics and police arrived, Johansson was already dead.
