Diamond Plate - Begin Recording New Album

US thrashers Diamond Plate have begun recording their new studio album, which is due to be released later this year through Earache Records. The as-yet untitled follow-up to the band's 2011 debut album, Generation Why? is being recorded with producer Neil Kernon (Judas Priest, Nevermore, Deicide, 3 Inches Of Blood) at Studio Chicago in the band's hometown.

Lead guitarist Konrad Kupiec comments: "We are beyond excited to announce that we are in the studio recording our second album! The legendary Neil Kernon is helping us capture the new songs and the new energy of the band in the traditional way that classic records were made. We decided to step away from the modern approach to albums by recording the band playing live in the same room together and keeping everything real. Everybody can expect this record to be faster and heavier than ever, but most of all they can expect the unexpected."

GY was a great record.

I'll definitely check this album out.

I wasn't that keen on the vocalist on the previous album (who I'm personally slightly relieved is not in the band now: he didn't fit as well as he should have to me), but I like the fact they're doing it live in the studio. Might check it out if the single from it sounds promising.
