AGGRESSION have already finished their long waited second full-length, after their acclaimed debut "Moshpirit", that was released on September 2009.
After a slight delay in the release of the album due to problems encountered at the level of production, that were completely alien to the band, finally the new official date of release of "Viocracy" is Wednesday, February 1st of 2012 through XTREEM MUSIC.
The mix of "Viocracy" took place during the month of November by Julian Janovich and mastering has been done in the Swedish Fascination Street Studio, at the hands of Jens Bogren (OPETH, AMON AMARTH, KREATOR, SYMPHONY X). The pre-production and production have been carried out entirely by the band.
"Viocracy" will be available for pre-order through the official store of the band (www.aggression.es) two weeks before its official release; from the 16th of January. It will be possible to pre-order the new album as well as the new limited merchandising, and each order, in addition to getting the album before its official release, will be presented with a full color poster signed by the band as well as other gifts unrevealed yet.
After going through several line-up changes, Spanish thrashers AGGRESSION, are working on the last details of their long waited sophomore album, after their acclaimed debut "Moshpirit", that was released on September 2009. On this second album, that will receive the name of "Viocracy", there will be able to appreciate clearly a music style readjustment, oriented to a most technical, eclectic and progressive Thrash Metal, but without losing the first album essence.
Those changes have been enhanced with the entry of the new members, who help the band to acquire a technical and musical level never seen before in the band's history.
Actually, this is the AGGRESSION's line-up:
- Pol Luengo (Guitar and lead vocals)
- Oscar Reka (Guitar and back vocals)
- Carlos Leonardo (Bass and back vocals)
- Jose Rosendo (Drums)
The recording, mixing and the mastering of "Viocracy", will be done during this fall. The recording will be performed in Sweet Home Studios (Barcelona) on September, and the mix and the mastering will be done again (just like the first album) by the young producer Erik Monsonis.
The album will also include a cover of the classic "YYZ" from the legendary progressive rock band RUSH, from their highly acclaimed album "Moving Pictures".
The track list of "Viocracy" is going to be the following:
01. False Flags
02. Chemical Slavery
04. MK Ultra
05. Get Mad
06. Awake Awareness
07. Human Nature
09. Victims of Bias
10.- YYZ (Rush cover)
The cover of the album has been designed by the renowned German illustrator Eliran Kantor, who has worked with bands like SODOM, ATHEIST, TESTAMENT, etc.
"Viocracy" will be released worldwide in January 1st, 2012 through XTREEM MUSIC, and which international promotion will be done by the professional musical agency Top Artist Promotion, who has already worked with bands like GAMMA RAY, STRATOVARIUS, KAMELOT, and so on.
