Taking technical death metal back to its heavier roots, international band Serocs is preparing the follow-up to their 2012 debut full-length Oneirology. With influences such as Cryptopsy, Wormed, Decapitated, Spawn Of Possession and Nile, to name a few, this album will bring another depth into the realm of brutality.
The album, appropriately title The Next…, marks a new era in the band’s history, going from a one-man band into a full blown assault.
Founder and guitarrist Antonio Freyre is joined by metal legends to create an intense assault of technicality.
The line-up is as follows:
-Antonio Freyre – Guitars
-Timo Häkkinen [Kataplexia, Sotajumala, Vile (live)] – Drums
-Mike Poggione [Capharnaum, Eulogy, Monstrosity, Vile (live)] – Bass
-Philippe Tougas [Chthe’ilist, Vengeful, First Fragment, Zealotry] – Lead guitar
-Josh Smith [Gutfucked, ex-Monumental Torment] – Vocals
They will also be joined by guest vocalists Youri Raymond [Unhuman, ex-Cryptopsy], Martin Lacroix [ex-Cryptopsy], Chris Lollis [Nile, Lecherous Nocturne] and more.
The album is expected to hit the world in June 2013, mixed and mastered by Nico S., and including 8 songs of devastating quality, guitar tabs and a few surprises.
