Floridian extreme metallers, INFERNAEON, have premiered the first track from their upcoming album, “Genesis To Nemesis,” due August 31st. The track is called “Ziasudra,” and tells the story of the Sumerian king of the same name, from which the story of Noah is derived. It can be heard now at the band’s newly redesigned MYSPACE PAGE which also features the new album’s cover art done by Brazilian artist Marcelo Vasco. PROSTHETIC RECORDS has launched the pre-order for the album at their OFFICIAL WEB STORE. Front man Brian Werner commented on the cover:
“My boy Marcelo Vasco, from Brazil, is hands down the most amazing artist out there right now. He’s worked with everyone from Obituary to Vader to Belphegore, and just when I think I’ve seen the best work out of him, he does something new and I’m blown away all over again. I was anxious to see what he was going to do for us for this album and I had to pick my jaw up off the floor when I saw this. It was literally everything we had wanted from an album cover since we started writing the album”
“Genesis To Nemesis,” was recorded with producer Brian Elliott at Mana Recording Studios (Goatwhore, Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal) in St. Petersburg, Florida, and picks up where 2007’s “A Symphony of Suffering,” (which Metal Hammer described as, “brave, unflinchingly inventive and jackhammer-heavy from beginning to end,”) left off, with a devastating mix of Floridian death metal and symphonic, sinister European black metal. The album features guest appearances by GWAR’s front man, Oderus Urungus, Erik Rutan, John Zahner of Savatage (who served as keyboard engineer) and Bill Hudson and John Slaughter of Coldera.
