Nothnegal - Debut Album Title Revealed

Season Of Mist press release

Nothnegal's debut album is finally in sight! The Maldivian band named their upcoming full-length Decadence.

Guitarist Hilarl commented: "Decadence is Nothnegal's first official studio release and the first release featuring the current line-up, with Fufu handling both the guitar and vocal duties, Marco on keyboards and Kevin on drums.

The writing process of Decadence began in summer 2010 and has been quite a challenge for us as we have taken time to do a lot of experimentation on the sound shifting more towards thrash and progressive metal with industrial elements making it entirely different from the sound we had on our 2009 4 track demo, Antidote Of Realism.

With a completely new and original sound and attitude we feel like we starting again from scratch as we believe Nothnegal have finally discovered its sound with 'Decadence'."

Decadence was mixed by Greg Reely (Fear Factory, Machine Head, Devin Townsend) and Ahti Kortelainen (Sentenced, Sonata Arctica), and has been scheduled for a January 20th (January 24th in the US) 2012 release.
