Azusa (featuring members of The Dillinger Escape PlanExtolSea + Air, and more) have just announced the details of their sophomore album.

The band’s new studio album, “Loop Of Yesterdays“, will be released on April 10th 2020 through Solid State Records in North America and Asia, and through Indie Recordings everywhere else.

For the upcoming album, the band found themselves returning to drummer and producer-engineer David Husvik’s Hawk Studios in Oslo, Norway to record “Loop Of Yesterdays,” which was masterminded by long-time collaborators David Husvik and guitarist Christer Espevoll, and recorded in a series of marathon sessions that started before their previous album even left the pressing plant. The band once again called upon Nick Terry [Serena ManeeshKvelertakTurbonegro] to achieve their ideal mix, a highly polished balance of punch and aggression, giving mastering engineer Jens Bogren [Opeth, At The GatesBetween The Buried And Me] a pitch he could knock out of the park. Intrigued by his ability to exist comfortably in both the jazz and metal world, the band reached out to world-class guitarist Alex Skolnick [Testament] to contribute a shredding guest solo on the track ‘Detach.’

Three Days In Hell have debuted their first album, “A Bloody Retelling”, which is being released through The Bearded Dragon Productions. The band was created through 2018 by Samuel Reeves on Vocals and Chris Besonen on Guitars and Drums.

The album is a concept release, setting up a long future of similar releases, including a series of split EPs. evilSHED, a project created by Besonen, has been a part of this form of storytelling, and the two acts continue to present an interesting form of lyrical composure, despite their raw production values.

All I can say is the album is raw, rough, heavy and full of bizarre Metal noise. I think it reflects the lyrics well, as they chronicle the events of the Old Testament, which is bloody, violent and a bit unorganized too. The Bible is Brutal, so we want to reflect that in every way we can!” states Besonen.
