Demonic Resurrection Ready New Album
The band will begin recording in July
Mumbai-based power metal band Demonic Resurrection are wrapping up their yet-to-be titled fifth album and plan to get into the studio in July. “We have been writing new material for a while now and it’s beginning to take form now. We should be in the studio with it by the first week of July,” says Sahil Makhija, the band’s vocalist.
The band will move away from their Darkness series, an ongoing theme in their last three records ”“ A Darkness Descends, Beyond the Darkness and The Return to Darkness ”“ and start afresh. “We have been creating new soundscapes and that is turning out to be a new story. There have been changes in lyricism as well,” says Makhija who goes by the moniker Demonstealer.
The band hopes to finish recording before they travel to the UK to play Bloodstock 2012, an annual heavy metal festival, in August. Demonic Resurrection will also do a five-city tour of the UK.
In the meantime, the band also plans to revive the fan-funded music video project that went live in February via a music webzine. “We can’t be more thankful to our fans for the incredible generosity they showed while pledging the amount to us. We just couldn’t collect enough and are hoping of meeting the deficit to finally shoot our video,” says Demonstealer, who will flag off the project soon. The band, which collected approximately Rs 50,000 till date, hopes to hit the 1 lakh target that they had set at the start of the project.
