Canadian modern metal masters THREAT SIGNAL have entered Planet Z studios in Hadley, Massachusetts with producer Chris “Zeuss” Harris (CHIMAIRA, HATEBREED, ALL THAT REMAINS, THE ACACIA STRAIN, BORN OF OSIRIS, SHADOWS FALL) to begin recording their third album.
The first in a series of webisodes featuring behind-the-scenes footage from the studio can be viewed below.
Regarding what fans can expect to hear from the new THREAT SIGNAL CD, the band recently said, “Basically we said, ‘Let’s write the heaviest fuckin’ record we possibly can.’ We’ve been experimenting with seven-string guitars and drop tunings since the early days, so we have decided to write almost the whole new record that way. We are headed back to the ‘Under Reprisal’ days but with bigger balls.”
Fan-filmed video footage of THREAT SIGNAL performing a brand new song, “Fallen Disciples”, on May 13, 2011 at Foufounes Électriques in Montreal, Quebec, Canada can be viewed below.
THREAT SIGNAL recently parted ways with drummer Norm Killeen and guitarist Adam Weber and replaced them with Alex Rudinger from Frederick, Maryland and Chris Feener from Grand Falls-Windsor, Newfoundland, Canada, respectively.
THREAT SIGNAL last year completed the “Threat Over Europe 2010” headlining tour with RAUNCHY (Denmark), SYBREED (Switzerland), M.A.N (Sweden) and ILLIDIANCE (Russia).
THREAT SIGNAL‘s sophomore album, “Vigilance”, sold around 1,100 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 32 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
THREAT SIGNAL members Jon Howard and Pat Kavanagh are also involved with ARKAEA, the band featuring FEAR FACTORY members Raymond Herrera (drums) and Christian Olde Wolbers (guitar).
