“Aftereal”, the new album by EXLIBRIS, will have its premiere in late Autumn! The band is drawing toward the end of their work at the studio. All the instruments have already been recorded and only the vocal parts are yet to be finished. The band are sure to surprise their fans this time around, also because of the many outstanding guest musicians featured on the album.
While working on “Aftereal”, the band kept coming up with ideas for particular guest appearances. In the end, the line-up became quite impressive: Piotr “Dziki” Chancewicz (Wild Pig, Mech) and Piotr Rutkowski from Corruption played guitar solos. Misiek comments: “It was Dani who thought of Piotrek ‘Rutkoś’ Rutkowski, known from, among other bands, Corruption and Spirit, and that was a bullseye. This incredibly talented young man recorded a beautiful guitar solo – the longest one on ‘Aftereal’. The album’s intro, in turn, was recorded by Michał Staszkun, known from his cooperation with Hate. There’s one more guest performer that will appear on the album. The details regarding that guest appearance, however, are for now shrouded in mystery. We only know he’s a well known artist and that he contributed his vocal talent”. Exlibris’ drummer adds: “We’re extremely satisfied about that lineup, as every single guest performer did his absolute best, and every one of them did it in their own style, making the album even more diversified. I shudder at the thought of who we might be inviting on our next album.”
The recordings took place at ZED Studio. The vocal parts are being recorded at HZ Studio, where the band’s previous album “Humagination” was recorded. The mix and mastering are handled by Tomek Zalewski. The previous Exlibris album, the second one in its discography, was released last Autumn to a great success, featuring melodic death metal music on the international level.
