America (July 27th in Europe), Dark Roots Of Earth will bring nine tracks of blistering metal that pretty much guarantees Indiana Jones-esque face melting. The album is being produced, mixed and mastered by Andy Sneap (Arch Enemy, Nevermore) and the album artwork (which you can see below) is done by Eliran Kantor, who has worked with Sodom and Atheist among others.
