AntropomorphiA enters the studio to begin recording new album, ‘Merciless Savagery’; announces line-up change

Unholy Dutch Death Metallers AntropomorphiA are currently busy in the studio recording their next album‚ Merciless Savagery. The album is being recorded at Aftermath studios and will be produced by drummer Marco Stubbe. Mastering duties will be handed over to infamous Dan Swano in December for a tentative release in spring of 2019!

AntropomorphiA comments: “As we shred closer to the end of the recordings of our 4th full length album, everything feels more pervasive than ever before. While we went through some unsettling dark and overwhelming times during the writing of this album, which is not necessarily something negative in our realm, it gave us the hostile anger and exact perspective to move forward and create this audial landscape. Our origins are weaved within the structure of this album but there was a lot of new ground to be discovered. It’s brutal, it’s dark, it’s hateful, filled with infectious riffs and a ‘fuck you’ to a mostly repetitive scene.”

In other news the band had a line-up change just recently. Bassist Marc van Stiphout has left the band and AntropomorphiA have called Jeroen Pleunis to duty. “Marc parts ways with us with no hardship or ill will. Marc’s follow up is Jeroen Pleunis (ex-Villainy), Jeroen is no stranger to the band and he will bring his talent and raging madness to our fold. As the landscape changes a new era begins, gates will open and spew forth a beast of hellish ferociousness.”

AntropomorphiA line-up:
Ferry Damen – vocals, guitar
Jos van den Brand – guitar
Jeroen Pleunis – bass
Marco Stubbe – drums

Hamferð releases live video of “Evst”; set to play live shows in Scandinavia this week

Faroese doomsters Hamferð have released a live video recording of “Evst”, the title track off the band’s 2013 debut LP. The song was performed at the release show for their latest album, Tamsins likam, on March 17th, 2018 at the old Sjonleikarahusið theater in Torshavn, Faroe Islands. Watch the video now at: https://youtu.be/T-XPLG40vSA

Hamferð previously released the live recorded video of “Stygd” from the same concert, the second track off Tamsins likam, released on Metal Blade earlier this year. See it here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pLtwVGB7f60

Singer Jon Aldara comments: “This concert was a meticulous production in regards to performance, sound and lighting, and we felt it was the perfect opportunity to record it properly. It’s a great feeling to have a live recording of Hamferð that does not come from an iPhone or from a festival production that we had little to no control over. We took everything in our own hands and went the whole nine yards with a brilliant crew and all the high-end equipment we could get our hands on. Luckily, I really think it shows!”

Hamferð will head out on a tour of Scandinavia this week, notably playing Sweden for the first time in their 10-year long career. See below for all dates!
