Death metal horde WARFATHER, the project fronted by MORBID ANGEL bassist/vocalist Steve Tucker, will enter Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersburg, Florida this week to begin recording its sophomore album. The as-yet-untitled follow-up to 2014's "Orchestrating The Apocalypse" will be released via Greyhaze Records.
WARFATHER's new CD will be produced by former MORBID ANGEL guitarist Erik Rutan, marking the first time Tucker and Rutan have officially worked together since MORBID ANGEL's "Gateways To Annihilation" album.
WARFATHER saw Tucker back to fronting a death metal outfit after over a decade since his departure from MORBID ANGEL, and over two years since his participation as a vocalist and writer in the well-received Nader Sadek project.
Tucker said: "WARFATHER is more than just a metal band; it is a belief system and a meeting of the minds, the ones that can see what is truly happening in the times we are living in. [It] is a warning to the eyes that choose to be blind, and a call to arms to the minds that do feel the coming changes. It is pure blackened, apocalyptic death metal."
"Orchestrating The Apocalypse" was recorded and mixed at Cincinnati-based TME studios by Tucker and mastered by Maor Applebaum at Maor Applebaum Mastering.
MORBID ANGEL guitarist Trey Azagthoth announced on June 15 that the band had reunited with Steve Tucker and that they were working on material for the group's next record.
