VOMITORY have announced a new album!
Titled All Heads Are Gonna Roll, the upcoming album from the Swedish death metal band is the long-awaited follow-up to 2011’s Opus Mortis VIII, and is scheduled to be released in May this year, via Metal Blade Records.
“We weren’t feeling any pressure, it was rather about making a decision whether we should continue as a band, i.e. release new material, or simply put the band back in the grave again,” explains drummer Tobias Gustafsson. “We wrote a few songs first just for the fun of it, to see if we still ‘had it’, before we made the final decision to continue and make a new full-length album.”
The instruments for the record were tracked in the band’s rehearsal space, on a mobile studio setup engineered by Mats Lindström, and was self-produced. “Although we had a lot of flexibility to choose our working hours, it was still crucial to keep the recording schedule as strict as possible, because it was so easy to say ‘let’s do it tomorrow instead’.” For vocals, they went to Leon Music Studios and engineer Rikard Löfgren, which was where they recorded their last three albums. They brought in good friend Christian Fredriksson [VULKAN] to play some guitar solos, but otherwise it is entirely their own work.
Alongside the announcement of the new album, the band have released a new music video for a new song lifted from the upcoming album; the title track All Heads Are Gonna Roll.
