THE FACELESS Guitarist Hints At Album Title and Sound of New Record
- Posted by RobInjection on June 4, 2012
It almost feels like it's been forever since the last release from The Faceless, but summer is coming and we've been promised a new album from the band in conjunction with their spot on the Summer Slaughter tour. A new interview has surfaced with main songwriter and guitarist Michael Keene, that offers new insight into the upcoming album.
Peek From The Pit spoke with Keene not too long ago, and Keene revealed some juicy bits:
The band is thinking about titling the new album Autotheism, which is a made up word. The prefix "auto" means oneself, so the title alludes to self-worship. When asked about the direction of the music on the record, Keene said:
"It's pretty new. I think people are going to be pretty surprised, but everyone I've played it for, as far as my friends and musicians, they've all given me very positive feedback. I'm pretty excited to get it out and show it to people. I think it will have a pretty positive reception overall. There might be some people that are bothered that it's a little bit less death metal at times, well a lot less death metal at times, but there is still a lot of blistering brutal stuff going on. It's very diverse, there's a lot of dynamics. Overall, the songwriting is way darker than it's ever been. It's a very eery dark record, whether the extreme death metal parts or there's lots of sequenced things with orchestral arrangements. It's all kind of eery and scary sounding which is kind of what I wanted it to sound like."
You can watch the entire interview right here. Don't forget the band is spending all summer on the Summer Slaughter tour. Get dates here.
