After a highly successful European Tour along side german Thrashers CRIPPER and british Trash Veterans ONSLAUGHT, Netherlands’ most fearsome export IZEGRIM is about to release its fourth full-record, second one via french Label Listenable Records. Eleven tracks under the banner of insanity is what one can expect from the upcoming Newby called “Congress of the Insane”.
The follow-up to the 2011-publication “Code of Consequences” could set standards even higher for Death-Thrash foursome and get IZEGRIM settled on the next level of their over 16-years-long carrier. Though still hailing the old Thrash origins and even having HOLY MOSES vocalist Sabina Classen, leading lady of the genre, guesting on the track “Manifest of a Megalomaniac”, the tonal approach has a much more deadly outcome. A deeper kind of blackened darkness, rooted in a riff-ridden depths.
Recorded in the spring of 2013, “Congress of the Insane” is scheduled to be released on October 7th, 2013. The artwork for it is the creation of Buenos Aires-born Photographer and visual artist Mariano Villalba, who has published photos for CD-covers, Bands, Haunted Houses, Halloween events and Horror Films Festivals. The “Evil Clowns”-Theme, the cover artwork for IZEGRIM derives from, is an important part of his work. A disturbingly appealing selection can be found on Mariano’s homepage.
