As previously announced, English thrash/death metallers FORGOTTEN REMAINS announced that they are set to record an EP this year, with esteemed producer Russ Russell (NAPALM DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, AMORPHIS, EVILE and many more).
To help finance “Morbid Reality”, the band have launched a Kickstarter campaign. To support them, head to this location. The band have stated the following about the campaign:
“Forgotten Remains have made significant progress over the last couple of years with the support of the underground scene, promoters and fans from all around the country. Our approach to metal is to play fast, intricate and heavy music and when it came to recording our new EP, there was only one name on the list that we believe can take our recorded music to a new level, the one and only Russ Russell. The band is 100% self funded with all members working full-time to pay for rehearsals, equipment, a van and its running costs, as well as CD duplication and merchandise production costs.
This new EP, “Morbid Reality” is going to incur our greatest costs so far but it is going to be worth it! This Kickstarter project is to partly fund the recording, production, mixing and mastering of the EP with the bulk of the cost being paid by the band themselves. There will be some limited edition items to purchase, as well as some “one-off” exclusives and some great bundles! In addition to that, all of the CDs ordered via the Kickstarter campaign will be signed – unless of course you request otherwise!
Kickstarter supporters will be the first to see artwork for the EP, hear previews of the new songs, get video updates from the studio and win some special secret prizes!”
