Brazilian death metallers Krisiun will release their new album, The Great Execution, on October 31 in Europe and November 1 in North America via Century Media Records.

The band's eighth studio CD "musically expands Krisiun trademark high-speed death metal violence with a heavily increased amount of diversity ranging from extreme tempo variations over distinct rhythm patterns to clean guitars and even Flamenco parts!" according to a press release.

Krisiun only used analog gear and instruments this time to avoid the compressed sound that so many musicians produce today. This wise decision resulted in a more organic sound, with the songs on The Great Execution possessing both warmth and rawness, which are so often lost through digital production. The low end is deeper, with drums that pound instead of bounce and guitar tones that sear rather than hiss.

Vocalist/Bassist Alex Camargo says: "With our new record we managed to capture the sound and the vibe that we were always looking for."

Going back to Stage One Studio in Germany and working with producer Andy Classen again was the right choice: the album came out with a very distinctive and natural sound, shattering the boundaries of the style once more.

The cover artwork was created by Japanese artist Toshihiro Egawa who has been doing tons of great designs for acts like Suicide Silence, Heaven Shall Burn, Devourment and Dying Fetus, among others.

The Great Execution will be available as a limited-edition digipack including a re-recorded version of the classic Krisiun song "Black Force Domain" as a bonus track, as a 180-gram gatefold vinyl and as a digital download.

Classen previously worked with Krisiun on the Conquerors Of Armageddon (1999), AssasiNation (2005) and Southern Storm (2008) releases.

The Great Execution tracklist:

01. The Will To Potency
02. Blood Of Lions
03. The Great Execution
04. Descending Abomination
05. The Extremist
06. The Sword Of Orion

In my opinion, this band has a knack of writing brutal but at the same time very catchy riffs. I love that about them. Please, Krisiun, more of the same...please..
