Corpse Garden – IAO 269

Latin American death metal act Corpse Garden will be releasing their third album IAO 269 on 24th November 2017 in CD, LP and digital formats through Godz ov War Productions.

Formed in Costa Rica in 2009 Corpse Garden are Felipe Tencio  (Lead vocals, synths, noise manipulation), Carlos Venegas (Fretless bass, aural manipulations, Icaros), Esteben Sancho (Strings, vocal emanations), Federico Gutiérrez (Strings aggression, drilling maelstrom, psychoactive soundscapes), and Erick Mejia Arguedas (Drums, visions, and spells from the void apparently!).

Recorded, mixed, mastered and co-produced by Colin Marston in New York this January, IAO 269 is said to take “the band into a brand new and bolder direction”. The music has been declared far more experimental and even trance-like at times.
