On November 11, Jason Saulnier of the MusicLegends.ca web site conducted an interview with vocalist/bassist Alex Camargo of Brazilian death metal veterans KRISIUN. You can now listen to the chat in the YouTubeclip below.
KRISIUN‘s new album, “The Great Execution”, was released on October 31 in Europe and November 1 in North America via Century Media Records. The band’s eighth studio CD “musically expands KRISIUN trademark high-speed death metal violence with a heavily increased amount of diversity ranging from extreme tempo variations over distinct rhythm patterns to clean guitars and even Flamenco parts!” according to a press release.
KRISIUN only used analog gear and instruments this time to avoid the compressed sound that so many musicians produce today. This wise decision resulted in a more organic sound, with the songs on “The Great Execution” possessing both warmth and rawness, which are so often lost through digital production. The low end is deeper, with drums that pound instead of bounce and guitar tones that sear rather than hiss.
“With our new record we managed to capture the sound and the vibe that we were always looking for,” says Camargo.
Going back to Stage One Studio in Germany and working with producer Andy Classen again was the right choice: the album came out with a very distinctive and natural sound, shattering the boundaries of the style once more.
The cover artwork was created by Japanese artist Toshihiro Egawa who has been doing tons of great designs for acts like SUICIDE SILENCE, HEAVEN SHALL BURN, DEVOURMENT and DYING FETUS, among others.
“The Great Execution” was made available as a limited-edition digipack including a re-recorded version of the classic KRISIUN song “Black Force Domain” as a bonus track, as a 180-gram gatefold vinyl and as a digital download.
Classen previously worked with KRISIUN on the “Conquerors Of Armageddon” (1999), “AssasiNation” (2005) and “Southern Storm” (2008) releases.
