DESPISED ICON Unveils Artwork, Details For Beast
We recently learned that Despised Icon would not only be putting out its first new record in seven years, but the album would be out in a matter of months. Beast is planned to drop on July 22 via Nuclear Blast Records and you can see the album artwork above, which was done by Alexandre Goulet.
The effort was recorded by Yannick St-Amand (Beneath The Massacre, Neuraxis) and mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Megadeth, Opeth, Nevermore). Here's what the band has to say about Beast!
"It's been 7 years since our last record and our batteries are fully recharged. The O.G. line-up is back and the new shit hits hard. You'll hear sounds of our older slammin' death metal days blended with the speed and technicality of our latest records. Cheers to everyone that has stood by us after all these years. Can't wait to unleash the Beast."
Everything about that statement is pretty exciting. So here's hoping a new song drops soon enough? We need to hear this…
