Montreal technical death metal outfit DERELICT has begun writing material for its new album, tentatively due next year through Year Of The Sun Records. The CD will follow DERELICT's full-length debut, "Unspoken Words", which was released in 2009.
Commented frontman Eric Burnet: "After a long tour and the stress of lineup changes, writing new stuff is really reminding us what we do this for. We've found a renewed energy and drive to create for DERELICT, and Jordan, Max, and I are all collaborating on the new material. Musically we're continuing in the technical death metal vein, but we're letting ourselves be free to experiment with whatever elements we feel like including. 'Unspoken Words' is a very fast and driving record, so while we want to keep that part of our sound at the forefront, we also want to look at developing other feels through different tempos, the use of more chord-based progressions in places, and a diverse vocal range."
Since the release of "Unspoken Words", DERELICT has toured its native country relentlessly, making two 6,000-mile round trips and multiple shorter stints in support of the CD.
