Chilean doom metal masters PROCESSION have announced they have finished working on their new two-song EP entitled “Death And Judgement”, the band’s first studio offering since 2010’s full-length album “Destroyers of the Faith”.
Procession’s frontman Felipe Plaza Kutzbach, who worked on the recordings in Scandinavia, promised Zero Tolerance the release will proove that doom shall rise again: “After a couple months working on them, we finished the 2 songs to be part of the ‘Death & Judgement’ 10″. We recorded ‘almost’ everything by ourselves (but the bass lines, which Claudio did himself in Chile) and stuff is being currently mixed/mastered by Patrick at Temple of Disharmony, who´s been becoming pretty much known recently by his monstrous work on vinyl mastering for the likes of Asphyx, Grave Miasma, Necrophobic, Necros Christos, Venenum, Resistance, etc. The main idea behind this release is to give a taste of what the new album is gonna sound like with an advance version of ‘Death and Judgement’ on Side A and also pay little to tribute to Agyl and SCALD from Russia. So we recorded our own version of the underground epic doom metal classic ‘Nightsky’ on Side B to commemorate 15 years since Agyl´s early departure and to remind people that back in ´96, five unpretentious Russian musicians recorded one of the best doom metal albums of all time and it is our mission to keep that legacy alive.
The result is pretty much the HEAVIEST and DARKEST doom metal release of the year so don´t miss it, late September, via High Roller/Burn Records and limited to 500 copies”.
Procession’s second full-length album “To Reap Heavens Apart” will be recorded later this year. A live recording of the new song, which was premiered at Hell’s Pleasure festival in Germany, is available for streaming HERE.
