Indiana progressive metallers THE CONTORTIONIST made the trek down to Audiohammer Studios in Sanford, Florida earlier this month to begin recording the follow-up to their 2010 debut, “Exoplanet”. Producers Jason Suecof and Eyal Levi (AUGUST BURNS RED, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER) are behind the boards for the new album, which is set to hit stores in late spring/early summer via Good Fight Music.
The second in a series of webisodes featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the making of the new album can be seen below.
Commented Good Fight Music label head Carl Severson: “THE CONTORTIONIST‘s jaw-dropping debut was a special record for Good Fight, being one of the first bands we signed to the label. Watching them grow since the release of ‘Exoplanet’ has been awesome. Coupling them with the talents of Jason and Eyal at Audiohammer is going to result in an utter monster of an album! Can’t wait for it.”
Added Suecof: “I’m ready for THE CONTORTIONIST to take my legs and pretzel them through my eyes while my ears get sonically brutalized.”
Stated THE CONTORTIONIST guitarist Robby Baca: “It’s really cool that we’re recording in the same studio as some of the same bands that we’ve been listening to for a long time. Some of our favorite records have been produced here. Jason is crazy as fuck, Eyal is chill as fuck, and we’re a combination of both so it’s a great fit.”
THE CONTORTIONIST will continue its busy year in March, kicking off a run with ALL SHALL PERISH, CARNIFEX, FLESHGOD APOCALYPSE and CONDUCTING FROM THE GRAVE in Oakland, California on March 29.
