Upcoming Bullsh*t



Back in March I expressed excitement at the prospect of a new album from Canadian OG deathcore/tech-death kings Ion Dissonance, and wondered aloud how it could be that this exceptionally talented band was still without a record label for their new album. Of course, the band wasn’t actually without a label… they just hadn’t yet announced that Century Media would be putting out their new album Cursed, which will see an August 24th release date and was produced by guitarist Antoine Lussier.

I have heard Cursed, and it’s a fucking slammer! It’s definitely in the more rhythmic/technical vein that 2007’s Minus the Herd ushered in for the band. Think more Morbid Angel / Gojira / The Red Chord death stomps, less breakdowns and Dillinger-style spazzes. Which is just fine by me because, ya know, I love that shit! Get a taste of a new song in the trailer posted above, as well as a look at the album artwork that you’ll look at once if you buy the album on CD and then never again.

Ion Dissonance also just announced a European tour in September with Cephalic Carnage and Psycroptic. Dates for that are after the jump. Hopefully a U.S. tour will follow.
