Polish progressive rock group Riverside has unveiled the album artwork and track list for their upcoming fifth studio album Shrine Of New Generation Slaves, which will be released Jan. 21st, 2013 via Century Media/InsideOut Music. You can see both below.
The artwork was designed by Travis Smith, who has done most of the album artwork for bands such as Opeth and Katatonia as well as the Avenged SevenfoldNightmare cover, which many regarded as the best hard rock album cover of 2011. READ MORE
In an interview with The Pulse Of Radio, Avenged Sevenfold frontman M. Shadows discussed the status of a new A7X album, stating, “I try not to say too much about the album because you know how the Internet world is, so I’ll just say this: we have a direction, we’re sticking to that direction, and we feel really very happy writing in these terms that we’ve laid out for ourselves.”
Continuing on with a little tidbit for the fans, “The album is coming along very nicely, we’re excited to get in the studio, we have about six songs that I’m really happy with right now, and we’re continuing to write every single day.”
This album will be the sixth studio album from the band and the first to have drums not written by James “The Rev” Sullivan (Nightmare‘s drums were written by The Rev while being performed/recorded by ex-Dream Theater drummer Mike Portnoy).
Meanwhile, fans can hear the new song “Carry On” after the credits in Call of Duty: Black Ops II. You can check out of that below. READ MORE
