Swedish death metal overlords EVOCATION will release their fourth studio album, Illusions Of Grandeur, on October 23rd in North America via Century Media Records. The new album is the band's first studio album for their new label and further proof of why the five-piece band from Borås has become a leading force in the death metal scene. Illusions Of Grandeur includes 10 tracks of supreme Swedish death metal, a perfect mélange of Stockholm rawness and Gothenburg epics.
Cover artist Xaay, who has already worked with EVOCATION on the Apocalyptic album, has proven to be the best choice for the job, delivering a dark and desolate yet beautiful piece of art for the new album.
Illusions Of Grandeur was recorded at IF Studios (IN FLAMES, THE HAUNTED, etc.) & Evocation Studios together with producer Roberto Laghi (IN FLAMES, etc.) and mixed at IF Studios by Roberto Laghi. It was mastered at Bohus Sound Studios by Dragan Tanaskovic.
As a very special guest, Johan Hegg of AMON AMARTH laid down guest vocals on the song "Into Submission." The track-listing for the album is below.
