KAOTEON have announced a brand new album!
The album, titled Damnatio Memoriae, is scheduled for release in February. Self-recorded by the Lebanese band, it was mixed and mastered by Daniel Bergstrand (BEHEMOTH, DARK FUNERAL, DIMMU BORGIR). Originally hailing from the Middle East, but now based in the Netherlands, the band have faced their fair share of problems in their home country over the years, as vocalist Walid Wolflust explains, “Lebanese metalheads are some of the friendliest and most amazing people to hang out with. It is sad to see great potential in this world gone to waste because someone somewhere decided to label people at birth and imprison them into their borders. The scene itself is thirsty for metal, so international bands should expect amazing interaction from the crowd. The Dutch scene – where we exist now – shows strong support for local talent, unlike the Lebanese scene. The Dutch scene loves their bands above all, while we feel that the Lebanese metal scene favors the international bands.”
The band have also released the title track from the album, which you can listen to here:
Damnatio Memoriae is set for release 23rd February.
