WARFATHER has issued a studio update on the progress of the band’s as-of-yet-untitled sophomore album. Rhythm guitars, drums and bass tracks are completed. Vocals should be finished soon. Sonically, the general feel of the album is moving towards a very heavy and dark tone. Artwork for the upcoming Greyhaze Records release is currently under consideration as well and more information on that front should be announced soon.
WARFATHER’s Steve Tucker (MORBID ANGEL) had this to say about the album’s progress:
“Working with Erik Rutan on this record is both an honor and an amazing experience. Erik knows death metal better than any producer or engineer on this planet! He knows how to get the best performance out of everyone who steps through Mana Recording studios’ doors. A true professional and a Legend!”
Producer Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, ex-MORBID ANGEL) added:
“Recording with Steve and the guys on the new Warfather album has been fantastic! It has been a blast to be working on this monster album in the studio once again with my great friend and former band mate. The songs are heavy as hell and just outright awesome. We have some great tones and performances and I’m really excited about the whole process. We have just finished all the drums, bass and rhythm guitars. The massive foundation has been formulated. Now it is time to start vocals and solos and onward to the mix!”
Masterminded by death metal veteran Steven Tucker, who recently rejoined MORBID ANGEL, WARFATHER’s new album marks the first time Tucker and Rutan have officially worked together since MORBID ANGEL’s Gateways to Annihilation.
