Texan brutal death metal peddlers Devourment are currently in the studio recording the follow up to 2009’s ‘Unleash the Carnivore’ due for an early 2013 release. The album is the band’s first offering for Relapse Records since signing with the label in 2010. Handling recording duties for Devorment at his Mana Recording Studios in St Petersburg Florida will be Erik Rutan (Hate Eternal, Morbid Angel) who recently produced Cannibal Corpse’s latest offering ‘Torture’, adding to his already impressive list of contributions to death metal.
Devourment’s chief growler Mike Majewski added: “This will be the deepest album we have done for sure. Definitely expect the intensity, but also more thought out song structures. I would say a bit of a throwback to old school brutal bands, but with the signature Devourment elements.”
In typically brutal fashion some of the working song titles for the new and as yet untitled album currently include ‘Fucked with Rats’ and ‘Fifty Ton War Machine’.
