Greek thrashers SUICIDAL ANGELS have unveiled the cover artwork for the band’s new and fifth album, Divide And Conquer. The cover artwork comes from grandmaster Ed Repka (e.g. Megadeth, Possessed, Death), who also designed the previous SUICIDAL ANGELS album covers for Dead Again and Bloodbath.
Commented vocalist Nick Melissourgos: “If you notice, in the pit, it’s not people fighting, it’s zombies. Also the crowd isn’t human, they are zombies. They are the souls of people who have no human feelings anymore. They represent the ugliness and the inhumanity of the humans. Thus, turned into something else, they are easier to be conquered and manipulated.”
Divide And Conquer, due January 10, 2014, has again been recorded with RD Liapakis in Germany, mixing and mastering duties have been handled by Fredrik Nordström (Arch Enemy, At The Gates, Dark Tranquillity a.o.) at Fredman Studios.
SUICIDAL ANGELS will set out for the Conquering Europe headlining tour in January / February 2014. The excellent tour package of new generation Thrash Metal bands is gonna be completed by Californians FUELED BY FIRE (new album Trapped In Perdition), Finns LOST SOCIETY (debut album Fast Loud Death) and Greek newcomers EXARSIS (new album Brutal State).
