KROKMITËN: THIRD ALBUM STUDIO UPDATE

Montréal-based Death Metal band KROKMITËN are now entering into production for their third full-length album HETA! (Previously announced title DOMINION). The band’s Frontman Simlev released this update about their upcoming offering;

"Hey Metalheads! A lot has happened since January. We worked super hard on this album’s songwriting, arrangements and on pushing Dominion's concept even further. Sadly, and with only a few minutes left to be written on the album, drummer Lupiaan made the decision to leave Krokmitën. Lupiaan contributed so much to Dominion that I didn't feel comfortable releasing this concept without him so I shelved it. That's how and why HETA came to life.

It's important to understand that when working on studio projects as challenging as a Krokmitën album, there’s a lot of roadblocks, mainly being time, energy and of course money. As independent artists, we make music for ourselves first. Since we insist on offering the albums for free, we need day jobs to support this passion! By working regular jobs during the day we have financial stability in our personal lives and further we’re completely independent from the music industry's negative influences. It's however an enormous challenge, juggling with those roadblocks. Fortunately I became fairly efficient at it by trying to stay as disciplined and organized as possible and where it counts. Over a longer period of time it can be hard on one' system and motivation can be difficult to maintain. I'm an artist with a vision that pushes the boundaries until the full potential has been reached, it's a make-it-or-break-it mentality. It’s a difficult commitment to make for the people involved in my project. It’s mainly for these reasons the band’s lineup has turned-over on every release. Despite all of this, I believe my vision and ideas keep getting stronger and I will continue surrounding myself with great musicians to create great music.

That being said, now with the good news! I’m happy to announce that the third album writing is completed and production is well underway. Guyot Begin-Benoit will be taking over drums duty on HETA. He's an incredible talent; fast, precise and creative. Some of you know him from Beyond Creation's first album, The Aura. He's entering my studio to record his drums next week and I'm super psyched to be working with him. I hope to begin mixing in September. J-F Dagenais of Kataklysm will be mastering the album once he's back from touring. I think it’s safe to say that HETA should see the light of day in a couple of months from now. I'll keep you posted on its progresses!"

Experimenting with my new Godin Redline 3. Just had a Seymour Duncan Invader installed in it by SD Lutherie in Montreal. So far this thing sounds amazing. I'm considering using it on the our third album Dominion!

Montréal-based Death Metal band KROKMITËN have officially released their second album OMICRON-OMEGA on July 10th 2014 at L'HÉMISPHÈRE GAUCHE in Montréal. True to their original platform, they have made OMICRON-OMEGA available for free in high quality audio files and can be downloaded right now at the band's headquarter, www.krokmiten.com.

This new 50-minute non-stop piece was recorded and mixed by Simlev (KROKMITËN guitarist/vocalist) at SLD Studio in Montréal, Canada and mastered by J-F Dagenais (KATAKLYSM, MALEVOLENT CREATION, MISERY INDEX).

Simlev commented: "Omicron-Omega is our gift to the universe of metal! We're stoked and proud of this capture in time that really represents well over 20 months of hard work. Fans are welcome to reach us on Twitter and our other social media accounts to give us some much-appreciated feedback, or simply to say hello! Now if you'll excuse me, I'll go sleep for two days!"

"Working on the album has been an absolutely unique and inspiring experience! I was able to be creative and better my craft as the project went along. Simlev provided the right tools to enable me to grow and I'm happy with the way things are going! I'm already looking forward to working on the third album!" says drummer Lupiaan.
