San Francisco Bay Area thrash legends Death Angel have recently announced their brand new album The Evil Divide, which is due for release on 27th May via Nuclear Blast. The band have recently released a trailer previewing some new music and the album cover artwork of their upcoming release, which you’ve probably just watched. If you haven’t yet, click the YouTube link above.
Artwork for the album was created by renowned tattoo artist Bob Tyrrell, following a suggestion by guitarist, Rob Cavestaney:
Both Mark and I had been tattooed by Bob, and when the subject of album artwork came up. We approached him to create the design. We wanted an image that would represent the idea of ‘The Evil Divide’; something beautiful, yet simultaneously wicked, hence the death moth. Bob realised our vision with mere pencil and paper, and now we proudly present to you the cover artwork for our 8th studio album, The Evil Divide.”
The album was recorded at AudioHammer studios in Sanford, Florida (not the fictional town that Hot Fuzz was set in!) with producer Jason Suecof (Trivium, Deicide), who previously worked on 2010’s Relentless Retribution and 2013’s The Dream Calls For Blood. Mastering duties were handled by Ted Jensen at Sterling Sound in New York City.
