Massacre: announces details for new album, 'Back From Beyond'
Legendary Florida death metal pioneers MASSACRE return with their first studio album effort in almost 20 years! Programmatically entitled Back From Beyond, the album will be released on March 24th in Europe and on April 1st in North America via Century Media Records. Returning to the roots of their early 90's trademark sound, Back From Beyond was recorded and mixed by Tim Vazquez of CGM Studios, Florida, and features original MASSACRE members Rick Rozz (guitars; ex-MANTAS/DEATH) and Terry Butler (bass; OBITUARY, ex-DEATH/SIX FEET UNDER), as well as Ed Webb (vocals; ex-DIABOLIC/EULOGY) and Mike Mazzonetto (drums; ex-PAIN PRINCIPLE). The cover artwork was created by Toshihiro Egawa (CRYPTOPSY, KRISIUN, DEVOURMENT, etc.).
MASSACRE's bassist Terry Butler comments: "MASSACRE is very excited and proud of our new album 'Back From Beyond'. We've worked hard over the past few months and we believe that the old school and new school fans will be pleased. Ed Webb and Mikey Mazzanetto are great additions to the band and did an amazing job on the album. This is Florida Death Metal at its best! We plan on making 2014 a busy year!!!"
