Dubai based death/thrash metal veterans, NERVECELL, are set to enter the studio in early December to begin recording their new album for a 2016 release via Unique Leader Records. Comments the band: “We have been working on new material for quite some time now and already have a few songs arranged and finalized with a lot more ideas still floating around at this stage. With all the extensive touring schedules and experiences we’ve had during the last four years, it’s only become more certain that the way forward for us musically is to dwell more into the extreme direction, fueled together with that Middle Eastern rage in our music and maintaining the classic NERVECELL death/thrash stance. So rest assured, no one will be disappointed!”
NERVECELL’s latest album, Psychogenocide, reaped many awards, including the “All Time Best Selling Metal Band” in the Middle East and North Africa region. The band received a plaque of recognition from Virgin Megastores (MENA) in January of 2012 certifying this huge accomplishment. Psychogenocide was also cited as one of the “Top 10 Death Metal Albums Of 2011” by media outlets globally including Metal Hammer Magazine (UK) who named NERVECELL one of the “Defenders Of The Faith,” listing NERVECELL as one of the “50 Heroes Of The New Metal Revolution.”
NERVECELL‘s Psychogenocide was released in April 2011 via Lifeforce Records. Produced and engineered by guitarist Rami H. Mustafa at Spellbind Studio in Dubai, UAE with drums engineered by Joe Haley at Red Planet Studios in Hobart, Australia, then mixed and mastered by Wojtek and Slawek Wieslawscy at Hertz Studios (Behemoth, Vader, Decapitated) in Bialystok, Poland, Psychogenocide boasts Psycroptic’s David Haley on session drums as well a guest vocal appearance from Nile’s Karl Sanders on “Shunq (To The Despaired…King Of Darkness).” The music videos for “Amok Doctrine” and “Shunq (To The Despaired…King Of Darkness)” can be viewed at THIS LOCATION.
