Here’s the official word:
New Hideous Divinity album out on November 8th via Century Media Records!
Italian Death Metal force HIDEOUS DIVINITY will release their fourth full-length album “Simulacrum” on November 8th via Century Media Records.
Enrico S states:
“As we step into our biggest chapter to date starting our adventure with Century Media Records, we push our boundaries not by changing our music but by offering a new distorted shape of the HIDEOUS DIVINITY you already know. That’s the entire concept behind “Simulacrum”: with the outstanding excuse given by David Lynch’s “Lost Highways”, a universe made of non-linear, surrealistic visions, HIDEOUS DIVINITY become a new creature, its dirtiness enhanced by an aura of static permeating our music. We embrace this static, and the change it brings.
The production level achieved with “Adveniens” is now gifted with the wildest dynamic range achievable. Each instrument cutting through the mix when required by the song. As it should be. Stefano “Saul” Morabito is once again the unmatchable alchemist, and his 16th Cellar Studios the forge we’d never give up.
Just like the new, superb cover artwork by Vladimir “Smerdulak” Chebakov, we tear up our mask and subvert the rules. From Cronenberg’s metamorphosis to Lynch’s anamorphosis we re-compose the body of our music itself, like an electrical seizure we live over and over again. This is “Simulacrum”.”
The album will feature ten original songs delivered with jaw-dropping technical finesse, as well as two covers, Machine Head’s “Blood Of The Zodiac” and Mayhem’s classic “Cursed In Eternity”, as bonus tracks on the digipack CD (which will also be included in the LP edition).
Recorded, mixed and mastered once again by Stefano Morabito at 16th Cellar Studio
The impressive artwork was again created by Vladimir Chebakov who also did the cover for Hideous Divinity’’s last album “Adveniens”. Digipack features 5 more stunning paintings by Vladimir.
