Deathchain - To Release New Album In April

Finnish death metallers Deathchain have finished their sixth full length album, titled Ritual Death Metal, which is set for the release through Svart Records on April 5th, 2013. In the wake of an already impressive Death Gods three years ago, this new offering has been recorded last summer with Swedish "wünderkid" Tore Stjerna in Stockholm in his world-renowned Necromorbus studio, where most famously Watain, Ondskapt, Funeral Mist and many others have sworn a pact with the Great Horned One.

The album will also feature guest vocalist LG Petrov (Entombed), who provides vocals for the track "Like Worms Upon The Lands". The cover art was done by Babalon Graphics, other layout work by Costin Chioreanu of Twilight13 Media.

Defying all categories, Ritual Death Metal applies elements from the entire extreme metal spectrum to achieve its pernicious goal, from the doom-laden rumblings of "Like Worms Upon The Land" to the blackish fury of "King Pazuzu". The result is a defiant, gloomy and epic 45 minute tour de force dedicated to summoning ancient Mesopotamian deities.

Vocalist "Corpse" comments on the theme of the album: "Thematically we have moved closer to the source, and all laughter around it has died. We work on our music and lyrics with the greatest intensity and map our inner beings to find the Lightbringer, who stands beyond everything. On this album we concentrate on the Mesopotamian pandemonium as we examine the different manifestations of the adversary. "
