Angelus Apatrida: Reveal artwork of new album "The Call"; Announce Spanish tourdates!
Spanish Thrash Metallers ANGELUS APATRIDA are back for the attack with a new studio album entitled "The Call", which is to be released on April 30th, 2012 all over Europe via Century Media Records.
The band's new album has just been finished with the same creative team as their previous release, "Clockwork": It was again recorded in Moita, Portugal at Ultrasound Studio with producer Daniel Cardoso (Anneke Van Giersbergen, Anathema, etc.) and the striking artwork, which can be now seen above, was handled by Gustavo Sazes from Abstrata (Arch Enemy, Krisiun, etc.).
ANGELUS APATRIDA checked in to comment on the artwork as follows: "The cover presents the character of the creature that's gonna start the Armageddon. We wanted the beast to look majestic and powerful and we definitely think that Gustavo achieved that. We believe the cover fully represents the spirit of what you are going to listen...and you better be prepared, cause is coming to get you!"
Here is the final track listing of the album:

It's been a busy time for ANGELUS APATRIDA ever since the release of their previous album, "Clockwork", in 2010: After a support slot on the Spanish Arch Enemy tour in December 2009, this ambitious and voracious Thrash Metal quartet did about 80 (!) shows in their native Spain as well as in Portugal (including slots at all relevant festivals like Sonisphere or En Vivo) and crowned activities by supporting the Slayer / Megadeth tour there. Additionally, ANGELUS APATRIDA also toured Europe twice: First together with Skeletonwitch / Warbringer and then with Dying Fetus, Keep Of Kalessin, Carnifex and Fleshgod Apocalypse (as part of the "Bonecrusher Fest"), which helped expand the band's international visibility and showcase their high level of musical skills abroad as well.
"Clockwork" was the band's third album release and achieved phenomenal media response: Spain's leading music magazine Mondosonoro voted ANGELUS APATRIDA "Best Metal band of the year (2010)", Kerrang Spain and Rockzone Mag named them "Best band of the year (2010)" and Rolling Stone Spain finally labeled them as "The Spanish band that plays the most outside of the country". Upon release, "Clockwork" entered the official sales charts in Spain on #44 as well as in Greece on #45 and the album's first single, "Blast Off", was backed up by a very effective and vivid video-clip, which opened further doors for the band.

More details about the new album "The Call" will be released in the coming weeks...
