LA’s metal monsters Warbringer are back with their fourth studio offering, programmatically entitled IV: Empires Collapse. The band have also confirmed the new street date for the album’s release as 28th October in Europe and 29th October in North America via Century Media.

IV: Empires Collapse, the studio recording debut for former Mantic Ritual members Jeff Potts (Guitar) and Ben Mottsman (Bass) rounding off Warbringer’s five-piece line-up, was recorded with producer Steve Evetts (Sepultura, The Dillinger Escape Plan, Suicide Silence), mixed by Brett Eliason (Pearl Jam, Heart, BoySetsFire) and mastered by Alan Douches/West West Side Music (Cannibal Corpse, Hatebreed, Converge). The album’s cover artwork, which can be seen above, was designed by Adrienne Rozzi.

The band checked in to comment about the artwork as follows:

The artwork for Empires Collapse came about from wanting to take a much more focused and simplistic approach. Previous Warbringer album covers are extremely detailed, busy works, so it was a conscious decision to have art that was the antithesis of what we had done before. John Laux came up with the concept, so we had our friend Adrienne Rozzi make up a sketch, which led to us having her follow through with the final piece. It’s incredibly different from what most fans would expect for a Warbringer album cover, but we wanted the art to visually reflect the music. The piece reminds me of a Tarot Card illustration and sets a very cryptic, somber vibe which associates well with the music that ties into the album’s title.

Eyes Set To Kill release “Behind The Scenes” video for forthcoming album Masks

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , , on 5th August 2013 by Nico Solheim-Davidson

During in the time that lead upto the pre-production of their upcoming album Masks, Eyes Set To Kill decided to not worry about expectations and just demo two of their strongest new songs: True Colors and Nothing Left To Say. As a result of the two anthemic, catchy songs, the band landed a deal with Century Media Records. Guitarist, singer and songwriter Alexia Rodriguez commented:

Those two songs served as a blueprint for the entire record. When we were writing, I didn’t try to do what everybody else does. We didn’t need to throw a ton of riffs into one song or get overly technical. I wanted to make music that was catchy.

With that train of though, the band retreated to a studio in South California with renowned producer Steve Evetts (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Sepultura). During that process, Alexia evolved hugely as the band’s main songwriter and the band’s sound expanded because of this. For the first time, Cisko added staggering screams and vocals, building the harmonies and everything became amplified from the heaviness to the hooks.

A sneak preview of the recording process can be viewed below:

Masks will be in released 23rd September via Century Media Records in Europe and Australia/NZ.
