Dragonforce will be releasing its new album Reaching Into Infinity on May 19 via Metal Blade Records. The album was mostly tracked at Fascination Street Studios in Sweden with producer Jens Bogren (Sepultura, Opeth), and a few other studios across the UK and France.
According to bassist Frederic Leclercq, he played "a lot of rhythm guitar, electric and acoustic" on the album, which is interesting all by itself, but what Leclercq had to say about the vocals is particularly interesting.
“I think we have proven that playing fast was something we were good at, so this time I wanted to bring even more diversity into our music. It’s great to challenge ourselves instead of staying in a comfort zone, and I really wanted to experiment with Marc‘s vocals. I think people are going to be surprised at his brutality!”
So the album was performed heavily on by Leclercq, and might have some brutal vocals? Well, color me interested. Here's what the cover looks like:
