Teaser for the new album “THE I” available now

Hailing from Poland, the epic black / death metallers DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS will release their new album, “The I” on September 22nd, 2017 via Lifeforce Records. The album will be available as CD digipak, limited vinyl LP and digital download.

Watch the first teaser for the upcoming album HERE!

Recorded at various studios, including Dobra 12 Studio (drums) and Icaros Studio (guitars) the disc was mixed and mastered at Impressive-Art Studio by Przemyslaw Nowak who also handled vocals recording sessions and guitars’ re-amping. The album’s artwork, design and layout were created by Infected Minds. Photo session by Robert Zembrzycki and Pawel Kowalski of BandPhoto

The album features special guest appearances by Mercyful Fate / King Diamond’s guitarist Mike Wead and by Norway’s dark metal masters AETERNUS’ vocalist / guitarist Ares. Other artists who also contributed to the record are shamanic ritual meditative experimental act BÖN and Impressive Art Studio’s owner Przemyslaw Nowak who came up with interludes, additional background tunes and effects.

“It’s been a really long way to be finally able to wrap it all up, countless nights spent on writing the music and lyrics first, then working on the album’s pre-production, followed by what seemed to be never-ending, proper recording sessions, and tones of work that had to be done for the band afterwards. We really wanted this new album to become something really special and therefore, to avoid any haphazard decisions, we let them come out of us smoothly, without putting ourselves under any external tension and stuff. Did it pay off? Well, we’ll see… We surely worked our asses off, pushed things back and forth to get the best out of it. As a result we’ve got something we are damn proud of, something that we believe surpasses on all possible levels everything we’ve done in the past. I simply believe we’d outdone ourselves and recorded something that will cause your hearts beat faster…” – comments Quazarre, the band’s composer, vocalist and guitarist.

The title chosen, “The I”, for the record is not only a phonetic acronym of the band’s name, but above all it reflects the manifesto they stand for since the Horde’s inception in the year 2000 – the notion of freedom of choice and will. A supremacy of an individual over any external factors being imposed on us by others, with special emphasis on religion and its convictions, dogmas and paradigms. “The I” is a rebellious manifesto targeted against all those who stand opposed to anything that drives us towards individual perfection.

Mike Wead z MERCYFUL FATE i KING DIAMOND oraz Ares z AETERNUS pośród specjalnych gości na “The I”, nowej płycie DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS. Zespół ujawnia jej okładkę i tracklistę.

Premiera „The I”, najnowszego krążka polskich black / death metalowców DEVILISH IMPRESSIONS, odbędzie się 22 września 2017r. nakładem Lifeforce Records. Płyta dostępna będzie jako CD digipak, limitowany winyl LP oraz digital download.

Album został zarejestrowany w kilku miejscach: Dobra12 Studio (perkusja), Icaros Studio (gitary) oraz Impressive Art Studio, gdzie pod okiem Przemysława Nowaka zreampowano gitary i nagrano wokale, po czym całość poddano miksom i masteringowi. Okładkę, layout i artwork zaprojektował Infected Minds. Za sesję zdjęciową odpowiadają Robert Zembrzycki i Paweł Kowalski z Bandphoto.pl.

Na płycie gościnnie wystąpili gitarzysta MERCYFUL FATE i KING DIAMOND Mike Wead oraz Ares, wokalista norweskich pionierów dark metalu AETERNUS. Obok w/w swoje piętno na „The I” odcisnęli także muzycy enigmatycznego projektu BÖN (shamanic ritual meditative experimental) oraz właściciel Impressive Art Studio, Przemysław Nowak, odpowiedzialny za intra oraz dodatkowe dźwięki i efekty.
„Upłynęło naprawdę sporo czasu nim udało się nam doprowadzić wszystko do tego punktu… Niezliczone noce poświęcone na tworzenie muzyki i tekstów, prace nad przed-produkcyjną wersją albumu i późniejsze, zdające się trwać w nieskończoność nagrania właściwe, jak również następujący po tym wszystkim ogrom pracy nad innymi sprawami związanymi z zespołem. Naprawdę zależało nam, by ta płyta była czymś wyjątkowym, dlatego też, by uniknąć przypadkowych decyzji jej dotyczących, pozwoliliśmy, aby te wypływały z nas samoistnie, nie ulegaliśmy jakimkolwiek naciskom zewnętrznym. Czy było warto? Cóż, zobaczymy… Mogę tylko zapewnić, że pracowaliśmy nad nią wyjątkowo ciężko i zrobiliśmy dosłownie wszystko, by osiągnąć możliwie najlepszy efekt. W rezultacie mamy coś, z czego jesteśmy niezwykle dumni, coś, co w moim odczuciu przewyższa na każdym poziomie wszystko, co napisaliśmy do tej pory. Wierzę, że przeszliśmy samych siebie i nagraliśmy coś, co sprawi, że Wasze serca zabiją szybciej…” – komentuje Quazarre, kompozytor, wokalista i gitarzysta grupy.
Tytuł albumu, „The I”, to nie tylko fonetyczny akronim nazwy zespołu (The I = DI), ale też, przede wszystkim, bezpośrednie odzwierciedlenie manifestu, którego sztandary grupa niesie ze sobą od początku istnienia – manifestu gloryfikującego pojęcie wolności wyboru i niczym nieograniczonej woli. To memoriał głoszący wyższość jednostki ponad jakimikolwiek czynnikami zewnętrznymi narzucanymi nam przez innych, ze szczególnym wskazaniem na religię z jej dogmatami i ‘jedynie słusznymi’ wzorcami. „The I” to niepokorny manifest skierowany przeciwko wszystkim stojącym w opozycji względem tego, co pomaga nam w nieustannym doskonaleniu samych siebie…
