Desaster - Announce New Album, Launch First Single

Since 1989 Germany's Desaster have been churning out their unique and unholy blend of extreme metal, and in 2021 they return with perhaps their most powerful album to date, the towering Churches Without Saints. It will be released June 4th and pre-orders are now available through Metal Blade Records and Bandcamp. For a first preview of the forthcoming music output, a video for the new single "Learn To Love The Void" has been unleashed.

Churches Without Saints track listing:

01. The Grace Of Sin (Intro)
02. Learn To Love The Void
03. Failing Trinity
04. Exile Is Imminent
05. Churches Without Saints
06. Hellputa
07. Sadistic Salvation
08. Armed Architects Of Salvation (In Clarity For Total Death)
09. Primordial Obscurity
10. Endless Awakening
11. Aus Asche (Outro)

The record was tracked in the band's rehearsal room and was recorded, mixed and mastered by their live mixer Jan "Janosch" Gensheimer. This led to a very relaxed atmosphere throughout the whole process, having rehearsed a lot prior to recording and also doing a full pre-production demo with their own equipment, meaning they could record very fast and without many mistakes. They did however change things up a little, sonically speaking.

Guitarist Infernal comments on the album: "It's a typical Desaster old school black-death-thrash metal album, with a lot of aggression, but also great atmosphere and epic tunes! (The title track) "Churches Without Saints" started with a few words about the hypocrisy of religion. We played the song a few times at the rehearsal room, and after that the words came to my mind automatically. We are blinded and we are still suffering from these old fairy tales. Even after thousands of years we still think there is a need to save your soul - or something like that - from death. But there isn't any need for this. Life goes on without you." He continues: "It was a big goal for me to change the sound a bit. Whereas the last albums had a very harsh sound where the mid and high frequencies were dominating I wanted a warmer and smoother sound this time. I always liked the sound of our Tyrants of the Netherworld album from 2000 very much, and the new album is an effort to develop this sound with more details and different instruments. On Tyrants we had the rough mud of deepest hellish caves, now we present you the black lava which is flowing around the throne of Satan himself!"
