German black metal band Infestus will start recording the successor to the critically-acclaimed album E x | I s t in February. Multi-instrumentalist composer Andras comments: "This new offering will consist of 7 songs, depicting severe introspection, telling of horrifying self-reflection, the dying dream of catharsis and the search for the root of all darkness in me. Again I will perform and record all instruments myself."

As for the concept, he goes on: "The new songs are quite difficult to understand for me. They have some of the classic E x | I s t elements but also lots of new things that I haven't done before. All is embedded in a conceptual idea which -concerning my point of view- somehow ties in where E x | I s t ended. I say somehow, because practically there cannot be a follow up to the concept of E x | I s t. Since this album was a very important step for me, dealing with my darkest shadows and trying to put them behind me, I find myself now exposed to fragments of this utter darkness which has changed its shape and still lives on in me. "The protagonist" of E x | I s t may reside as an empty shell, burnt out and fucked up, but my inner strife - constantly flourishing on fertile ashes of the preceding cremations - continues. To distill all this down to its essence: catharsis is an illusion."

This new piece of black art will be released sometime in 2013 through Debemur Morti Productions. In the meantime, Andras has gathered a live line-up to perform from March 2013 onwards. The ranks consist of: Andras - Vocals, Ain - Guitars, A. - Guitars, Sorath - Bass and Blood Hammer - Drums.

If it's near as good as the other one then it will be excellent.
