Swedish grindcore powerhouse Gadget have entered the studio to record their third full-length LP. The release of the follow-up to 2006’s The Funeral March is expected via Relapse Records in the autumn of 2014.
Formed in 1999, Gadget play the blackened type of hardcore, spiced up with elements from the darkest side of metal. The band is currently holed up in drummer William Blackmon’s The Overlook Studios self-recording and producing their first new material since 2010’s split with Phobia. Guaranteed to be 100% true grindcore, the album contains 18 songs that were written sporadically since 2009, with the majority of new material coming to life in 2013.
Guitarist Rikard Olsson commented: “Since it was so long ago we did an album it still feels weird and kind of unreal! It’s early to exactly say what the outcome will be like but it’s still the same four guys in the band, so it will be Gadget for sure. Perhaps a slightly more ‘old-school’ approach to the songwriting (comes with age I guess…), but we still have our death and doomy sludge parts thrown in the grinder!”
Drummer William Blackmon added: “It’s definitely more ‘in your face’ on this album – less death metal influenced, more old-school grindcore. Plus the mandatory doom parts, as Rikard mentioned.”
