This one caught my eye due to the historical connection with Five Finger Death Punch’s Ivan Moody (and most of us will have heard the news relating to them earlier this week). Anyway, Motograter announced their new album some time ago, but with a vague release date of “Spring 2017”.
Well, we can confirm that Desolation will be officially released on August 11th and was produced by Ahrue Luster (Ill Nino/Ex-Machine Head) and mixed by Joshua Wickman (Within the Ruins, KING 810). The album was engineered by Luster, Wickman, and Jon Berrier, and recorded at Illustrious Productions, Dreadcore Productions, and BlackPlate Productions.
Art for Desolation was created by Mister-Sam Shearon, who has created covers for comic books and graphic novels including Clive Barker’s Hellraiser, Judge Dredd, The X-Files, Mars Attacks, KISS, and Clive Barker’s Books of Blood as well as artwork for some of the biggest names in rock music, such as Godhead, Ministry, Rob Zombie, Iron Maiden, Powerman 5000, Biohazard, American Head Charge, Rammstein, Fear Factory and Kill Devil Hill.
This is only the band’s second full length release after 2003’s self-titled LP fronted by the aforementioned Moody. Motograter’s lead man is now James Anthony Legion (Deadform/The Breathing Process). The full line-up for the band is:
- James Legion – Vocals
- Matthew “Nuke” Nunes – Guitar
- Jesse Stamper – Guitar
- Mylon Guy – Bass
- Noah “Shark” Robertson – Drums
- Dustin “Skunk” Anderson – Motograter
