A two-minute trailer for “Crypts Of The Unrotten”, the sophomore album from German death metallers DAWN OF DISEASE, can be seen below. Due on April 27 via NoiseArt Records, the CD was once again recorded at Soundlodge Studio in Rhauderfehn, Germany with producer Jörg Uken (GOD DETHRONED, DEW-SCENTED, SINISTER).
Commented the band: “After recording our debut album in Soundlodge, it was clear to us to go there again, since we had been very happy with how it turned out the first time. Jörg is a great guy and this time we had much more time to record and all than last time.”
The “Crypts Of The Unrotten” concept was based on the eerie Capuchin Catacombs of Palermo, Sicily, which were constructed after the death of Silvestro of Gubbio, a famous 16th century monk. Four long limestone corridors underneath the Capuchin Church hold about 8,000 mummies, lying in repose or hung from hooks by their necks and feet and wearing their best clothes.
“Our guitar player Lukas ‘dug up’ the topic and the atmosphere as well as the stories around all those ‘crypts’ have both fascinated and influenced us as a band,” DAWN OF DISEASE said. “It’s the main theme of the album and also refers to it unmistakable in the album title.”
