FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE New York, NY (May 15, 2018) – Canadian metal trio CAULDRON will release their long-awaited new album entitled New Gods September 7 through The End Records (North America) and Dissonance Productions (Europe).
For the follow up to their critically acclaimed 2016 album In Ruin, Jason Decay (lead vocals/bass), Ian Chains (guitar) and Myles Deck (drums) together with producer Chris Stringer (Timber Timbre, Wooden Sky) honed and recorded the songs at Union Sound in Toronto for what would become New Gods.
New Gods, the group’s fifth full-length studio record, once again promises a strong emphasis on songwriting and melody, complete with high-end organic production to match.
“We have always prioritized songwriting above anything else. For me personally, I have always felt more confident writing than as a "musician" and for the first time I think we have found the production that best suits our songs,” says Decay.
"I am very proud of the songwriting, performances and production on this one, and it is definitely the most confident I have been in a finished album of ours. It is dark, it’s heavy and it has a very melodic sense of AOR. Most importantly, it still sounds very CAULDRON. I’m pretty sure people who were into In Ruin will like this one just as much if not more!”
More on CAULDRON:
Born from the ashes of genre-defining, critically-lauded GOAT HORN, the band known for being heavily influenced by Black Sabbath, Venom, and Judas Priest called it a day in 2006, and front man Jason Decay wasted no time in putting together CAULDRON to continue with his heavy metal vision. Hailing from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, CAULDRON has since then released the Into The Cauldron (2007) EP, as well as four full-length albums: Chained to the Nite (2009), Burning Fortune (2011), Tomorrow’s Lost (2012), In Ruin (2016) and the Moonlight Desires EP (2014). The band has toured the world with the likes of Municipal Waste, Death Angel, Nevermore, Diamond Head, Enforcer, and in the summer of 2013, were invited to play Metallica’s Orion Fest in Detroit. Burning Fortune was nominated for a Juno award in 2012 while the video for the single “All or Nothing” has received almost 600,000 views on Youtube/Vevo and was featured in the video game RockBand.
