Please tell us a few words about the new release, about the music on it as a whole or a few words on each track in part. How are you happy with the final release?
Dysentery's 'Fragments' is a violent fusion of grooving, guttural deathgrind with a punishing beat down attack. As Boston's most brutal export, the band has crafted their finest slab of slamming death metal to date with their 3rd full length.
How would you describe/label the music on it? Does it sounds like anything we might have heard before?
The band plays a brutal, groove laden style of death metal that most would call 'slam.' Their style of extreme metal can be likened to bands such as Suffocation, Devourment & Dying Fetus.
Where was it recorded and how much time did it take you to record it? Any interesting stories from the recording/producing the material?
The effort was recorded at various locations throughout the Northeast US throughout 2014 and engineered, mixed & mastered by Adam Rourke at the RedRoom. The band underwent a vocalist change in the middle of the recording process, postponing the release of the album several months.
What can you tell us about the cover artwork? Is there a link between the artwork and the lyrics? What are the topics of your lyrics?
The cover artwork was created by Italian artist Marco Hasmann, who has worked in the past with band such as Fleshgod Apocalypse, Septycal Gorge & many others. The artwork and lyrical content are linked heavily, as the concept revolves around the facets of the human mind through different psychological traumas.
What do you expect to gain through this release? What are the band's aims at the moment?
The band looks to expand their audience even more than on previous albums through the further development of their sound: a hybrid of extreme music that crosses over to several different ends of the brutal metal spectrum. The band's aims are to heavily promote the new release 'Fragments' through extensive touring and festival appearances all over North America & beyond.
Is there a special format the material is released in? Or is it released in multiple formats? How many copies were pressed?
The album is being released on CD worldwide via Comatose Music on July 10th with an extensive, full color booklet to bring the full package & artwork to life. The first pressing will be 2000 copies of the album.
Where and how will you promote this new release?
The new album will be promoted all over the internet through news/mueic sites, our label Comatose Music, music magazines & through frequent live performances.
