Taking technical death metal back to its heavier roots, international band SEROCS is preparing the follow-up to its 2012 debut full-length, “Oneirology”. With influences such as CRYPTOPSY, WORMED, DECAPITATED, SPAWN OF POSSESSION and NILE, to name a few, this album will bring another depth into the realm of brutality.
The CD, appropriately title “The Next…”, marks a new era in SEROCS‘ history, going from a one-man band into a full-blown assault.
Tentatively due in June, “The Next…” was mixed and mastered by Nico S. and includes “eight songs of devastating quality, guitar tabs and a few surprises,” according to a press release.
Founder and guitarrist Antonio Freyre is joined by metal legends to create an intense assault of technicality.
SEROCS‘ lineup is as follows:
* Antonio Freyre – Guitar
* Timo Häkkinen (KATAPLEXIA, SOTAJUMALA, VILE) – Drums
* Mike Poggione (CAPHARNAUM, EULOGY, MONSTROSITY, VILE) – Bass
* Philippe Tougas (CHTHE’ILIST, VENGEFUL, FIRST FRAGMENT, ZEALOTRY) – Lead guitar
* Josh Smith (GUTFUCKED, MONUMENTAL TORMENT) – Vocals
SEROCS will also be joined by guest vocalists Youri Raymond (UNHUMAN, ex-CRYPTOPSY), Martin Lacroix (ex-CRYPTOPSY), Chris Lollis (NILE, LECHEROUS NOCTURNE) and more.
