Beeldenstorm, who have been ascending the ladder of local death metal, with their back-to-basics, headbanging goodness. Are in the final stages of putting together their debut album, Die Donker Wetenskap (The Dark Science). Axeman, Waldi had this to say about the album artwork pictured above:
“The artwork is an original painting by Sean Abell (Artist at Jimmy Jazz Tattoos). We gave him the rough cut-demos, and the words “The Dark Science”. What he came up with perfectly encapsulates the underlying organic themes of the album!”
The album, which was recorded by Jethro Harris is currently being mixed and mastered by Ruan Jordaan (Megalodon), There is some retracking scheduled on some of the tracks, but this is not holding up the process and the album can be expected soon. To quote Waldi, “Sodra dit klaar is kan almal n moerse party verwag!”
If you’ve not yet had your face hammersmashed by Beeldenstorm, you can catch them this Friday at The Easter Haunt at ROAR, ripping it up with numetallers Arc Reactor, and self-styled “hobo thrash” band, RukuZ.
