HOWL: Enter The Studio
Providence, RI’s metallic beasts HOWL have entered the studio with legendary producer ZEUSS (CROWBAR, MUNICIPAL WASTE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) to record their highly anticipated sophomore album. The album is being recorded, mixed and mastered by ZEUSS at his own Planet-Z Recordings and is expected for a Fall 2012 release.
HOWL who built a reputation for their unforgiving Mastodon meets Lamb of God pummeling attack, previously released a full-length and EP via Relapse Records. More details on the upcoming release will be announced shortly.
HOWL guitarist / vocalist Vincent Hausman commented on the new recordings:
"This is the meanest and heaviest thing we've ever done, and we feel like the songwriting is a big step forward since "Full Of Hell". We're super psyched to team up with Zeuss, because we feel like he'll properly capture this monster of a record."
