A three-minute video clip featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of “God Is An Automaton”, the fourth album from Swiss metallers SYBREED, can be seen below. Due on September 24 in Europe and October 2 in North America via Listenable Records, the follow-up to 2010’s “The Pulse Of Awakening” was recorded at Downtone Studio in Geneva and was once again mixed in Los Angeles by Rhys Fulber, who has previously worked with FRONT LINE ASSEMBLY, FEAR FACTORY and PARADISE LOST, among others. The artwork was created by Seth Siro Anton (SOILWORK, PARADISE LOST, SEPTICFLESH) and can be seen below.
SYBREED filmed a video for the song “The Line Of Least Resistance” on July 22-23 in Paris, France with director Benjamin Cappelletti.
Seth Siro Anton previously commented on his artwork for “God Is An Automaton”: “My works are distorting dream mirrors of the body and soul. Human nature attracted often to specific art forms which are essentially attracted by the reflected dream world. On SYBREED new artwork, I tried to decode-externalize the architect of the blackest light, an automated God, an ironic priest which is fighting between two different levels of reality. An ironic synthesis combination of modern classicism. It was a great challenge and pleasure trying to visualize their new masterpiece.”
SYBREED last year recorded a new song called “Challenger”, which was released for download exclusively on iTunes. The track was enhanced with three “ass-kicking” remixes from BAK XIII, Voicians and Drop.
The “Challenger” EP was a standalone release, meant to serve as a sneak preview of the “catchy” kind of material SYBREED was working on for its next CD.
“The Pulse Of Awakening” was released in North America in July 2010 via Listenable Records.
