BIRMINGHAM, UK – UK death/grind super-group Lock Up has launched a special CD/t-shirt pre-order bundle in anticipation of the band’s forthcoming record Necropolis Transparent. The exclusive bundle pack is up now for purchase through the Nuclear Blast webstore at: store.nuclearblastusa.com/Search/lock_up.
Necropolis Transparent is slated to hit stores July 12th.
Necropolis Transparent was recorded in October 2010 at HVR Studios in Ipswich, UK with Criminal bass player/producer Danny Biggin engineering the sessions.
Long time friend, and renowned musical mastermind, Andy Sneap handled mixing duties at his Backstage Studios.
Lock Up’s veteran line-up includes Shane Embury (Napalm Death, Venomous Concept), Nicolas Barker (ex-Cradle Of Filth, ex-Dimmu Borgir), Tomas Lindberg (At The Gates, Disfear) and Anton Reisenegger (Criminal, Pentagram).
The release will also feature several guest appearances from Hypocrisy/Pain mainman (and one time Lock Up vocalist) Peter Tägtgren, along with Jeff Walker (Carcass, Brujeria).
“Having known Nick and Shane (a.k.a. the sumo tag team of grindcore) since the late 80’s, it’s always great to get together with old friends and make some noise in the studio,” said Sneap. “Necropolis Transparent by far surpasses what we achieved together back in 1999 with Pleasures Pave Sewers in terms of brutality, speed and song-writing, along with the help of new guitarist Anton Reisenegger (Criminal, Pentagram). For me personally, it was quite refreshing and great fun to do something this extreme, especially with my mates Nick, Shane and Carcass mainman Jeff Walker swinging by the studio to handle guest vocal duties and help us drink way too much. I have to say that Necropolis Transparent is way more than just another grindcore album; it has elements of everything that represents brutal and extreme. An absolute must for everyone out there that like their metal full of aggression, violence and pure savagery.”
