Kentucky black metallers Anagnorsis have offered an update on their impending full-length follow-up to 2013’s Beyond All Light. The new record will bear the title Peripeteia and will see a release this Fall on LP and CD through Vendetta Records (Germany), Yehonala (Europe, cassette) and Like Young Records in the U.S. While the bulk of the recording for Peripeteia was engineered by guitarist Zak Denham at his home studio , newly recruited drummer Cody McCoy (Černá, Boreworm) recently tracked drums for the record at the massive The Tracking Room Studios in Nashville (Megadeth, Deep Purple, etc). Studio footage of McCoy’s tracking sessions can be viewed after the break.
The band issued the following statement regarding the record:
“Peripeteia is a story over thirty years in the making; a tale not just based on our vocalist Zachary Kerr’s life… it is his life. We choose the title to complete the cycle, both literally and figuratively, on our narrative started on Beyond All Light, and to reference our namesake, the concept of anagnorisis. Peripeteia is the reversal, the turning point, the moment immediately preceding the crucial discovery (anagnorisis). We’ve taken all of the hope, fear, loss, joy, anger and turned it into fifty-four minutes of music that we are excited to share with all of you this Autumn.”
Stay tuned for the official artwork unveil, audio teasers and more, which are slated to be released in the coming weeks.
