Brazilian symphonic black metallers Frost Despair are finishing the recordings of their debut album, Surreal, the follow up to 2011's The God Delusion EP. The band posted samples of three songs on their website - www.frostdespair.com - and made comments about the tracks:
- 'The Sixth Bell' - "A track that brings up the album's atmosphere, which is slowly being set, with growing strength and musical aggressiveness"
- 'Surreal' - "It summarizes the atmosphere we looked for. Orchestrations were explored in the album as a whole, but we have some tracks with heavy moments without keyboards"
- 'Creation' - "Creationism being satirized with movement and aggressiveness. The longest and most epic track of 'Surreal'"
The album is being recorded in Hurricane Studios and has artwork created by Marcelo Vasco (Dark Funeral, Dimmu Borgir, Borknagar). A release date will be announced soon.
