||Swedish gothenburg metallers Degradead have announced the release of their fourth full length album this coming summer. The album will be entitled The Monster Within and will see the light of day on August 23rd, 2013.
The band comments: "Due to reasons within the band we have decided to move up the Release date for the new album. It is really hard for us to keep this monster away from you guys for so long. Now to the big news of the day. During January 14th and February 2nd we recorded our 4th studio album in Skara and studio Panic Room together with the producer Thomas "Plec" Johansson. This is our first album together with our new drummer Amit Mohla. This album ended up being the best Degradead album so far. More dynamic, more melodic, more thrashy, more of everything. The album will be titled The Monster Within and the monster will be let free on August 23rd this year. Thank you guys for being so patient!"
Producer Thomas Johansson adds: "Finally, the new Degradead album is mastered and is now uploading after three weeks of production. It has been great going back to the roots even on this one. No drum triggers or sample replacements used whatsoever which is otherwise so commonplace in todays metal productions. We did it the hard way with getting the right sounds from the start and having Amit actually playing the parts until we got the takes we needed, tuning the drums in between takes, switching snares for different songs etc. No plugins were used in the process either other than for very surgical tasks and special FX. All other processing are real chambers, hardware reverbs, delays, compression and EQ. Five times more work, but five times more fun and inspiring plus it's five times more fun to listen to. Be sure to check this monster out."
