Sunflower Dead have announced that they will commence recording their new album in November. For that purpose they have put together the production team of Dave Fortman (Slipknot, Evanescence) and Snot‘s Mikey Doling. The groups frontman Michael said of the coming sessions:

“I can’t even describe how excited everyone in SFD is to be working with our friend Mikey Doling and the great Dave Fortman. Mikey‘s enthusiasm for music is completely overwhelming and something that just sparks so much excitement. The fact that he will be co-producing the album with the amazing Dave Fortman is still blowing our minds. For me personally, Dave has produced some of my favorite records of the last 15 years. What’s more exciting is the caliber of vocalists he has produced – from Amy Lee to Corey Taylor to Chad Gray. I get to learn from one of the best!”

Bloodbath To Reveal New Singer Next Week, Confirm New Album & Release Date

Bloodbath have set “Grand Morbid Funeral” as the title to their forthcoming album, which will be released November 17th overseas through Peaceville. Furthermore, an announcement regarding the identity of their new singer will be made on September 16th, ending months of teases. That vocalist slot was officially vacated by Opeth‘s Mikael Åkerfeldt back in 2012.

Guitarist Anders “Blakkheim” Nystrom was quoted as saying of the new album:

“We’re proud of all these different styled releases and we loved doing each and every one of them, but the objective was never to settle with a certain style, so our time has come to shift once more. It was already decided right after the last album that the next record would not become The Fathomless Mastery part two, but in certain aspects it would actually become its antithesis.

So prepare for an ultimate blueprint of destructive, raw, heavy, organic, and sludgy death metal.”
