After a long period of intensive work in Greece and Sweden along with producer Fredrik Nordström (IN FLAMES, DIMMU BORGIR, ARCH ENEMY) at Fredman studios, Athens, Greece-based death/thrash metal band DESCENDING has completed work the follow-up to its debut album, “Enter Annihilation”, which was released in European and Japanese markets in 2008-2009. The as-yet-untitled new CD will be made available on September 23 via Massacre Records. A brand new digital single will posted online on June 1.
Commented the group: “Those two years were crucial for the musical and artistic course of the band. This time our vision was to deliver a massive album having as a gnomon the psychoacoustic result, even from the composing stage.”
DESCENDING‘s “Your Valentine” video can be viewed below. The clip, which was directed by Bob Katsionis, was featured on the Japanese version of “Enter Annihilation”, which was released via Spiritual Beast Records.
According to a press release, DESCENDING combines “both bombastic aggressive metal riffage and melodic hook lines in their songs. Their debut album ‘Enter Annihilation’ [shakes] the foundations of modern metal community! This modern metal masterpiece features astonishing belting vocals by Jon Simvonis giving a deadly touch with his wide range of vocal palette, from deep growls-to ecstatic emotional screams. Also blazing rhythm/lead guitar work by a new guitar hero Constantine (ex-NIGHTRAGE) who combines his fast and furious solo pyrotechnics along with his strong melodic phrasing giving to the album a unique flavour of his own shredcore fashion.”
