Long-running New Zealand progressive death metal outfit Dawn of Azazel will release their fourth full-length next month. The new record will be titled The Tides of Damocles and will be released on April 28 via the band’s Bandcamp. The upcoming effort, which follows 2009’s Relentless, was recorded, mixed and mastered last year at Mana Recording Studios (Cannibal Corpse, Hate Eternal, etc) in Tampa, Florida by Brian Elliot and J.J. Hrubovcak. The band issued the following comments regarding the new album:
“We’re excited as fuck to resurface with this record. It has an anger and a dynamism that reflects the reasons we’ve been silent for a several years, and our aggression moving forward in spite of these obstacles. We couldn’t be more proud of this record as our contribution of something ferocious and unique to the death metal genre.”
The album’s artwork and track listing can be found after the break, along with their upcoming live dates.
