Not only are we getting a new album composed of 11tracks by the death metal legends, we are also treated to the addition of guitarist Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal) permanently joining the band replacing Pat O’Brein. As you may remember O’Brien ran into some legal problem in December of 2018. Rutan has been filling in for live shows since 2019 and helped with this album’s writing process.

Alex Webster adds: “I think the most noticeable difference on this record will be the addition of Erik to the band. He wrote three full songs for the record, music and lyrics, and his songwriting and guitar playing have added something new, and I think his musical style integrated into ours very well. He’s a great friend of ours, so on a personal level, he’s been a perfect fit, as we knew he would be. Beyond that, he’s one of the hardest working people I know, in music or otherwise, and he maintains a high energy, positive demeanor in challenging situations where other people might go in a negative direction. This energy and great attitude rubs off on the rest of us as well. That’s really a perfect situation to have when you add someone to a band, or any kind of team: someone who’s great at what they do, and also inspires the people around them.”

The first single, ‘Inhuman Harvest’ can be heard directly on Metal Blade as well as preordered.
