Official press release:
New Jersey’s progressive metal mainstay Binary Code is finally back. Set to officially self-release its new album Moonsblood – the full-length follow-up to 2009’s Suspension of Disbelief and 2010’s Priest EP this May 24, 2016. Moonsblood will feature new vocalist Oded Weinstock and promises to offer up a completely different sound from what fans might previously expect from the band. Moonsblood promises powerful vocal hooks, huge, thundering riffs, gorgeous atmospheric tapestries, and impressively technical musicianship and songwriting.
Pre-order Moonsblood and listen to a brand new track entitled “Immersion”, via the band’s Bandcamp page now. The first 50 pre-orders will receive a special signed poster featuring the album art image below.
Engineered and mixed by Eyal Levi (August Burns Red, The Contortionist, Monuments) at Audiohammer Studios and mastered by Alan Douches (Suicide Silence, Dillinger Escape Plan, Converge) at West West Side Music, the members of Binary Code poured everything they had into delivering an album that would ultimately be a game-changer. The band is set to release something heavy, melodic, and progressive, yet focused and tightly written.
Binary Code founder and guitarist Jesse Zuretti comments:
“Moonsblood is a time capsule for Binary Code. Not only was the album written sporadically throughout the course of some of the hardest times I’ve personally had to endure, but also some of the most enlightening and positive moments of my life. The instrumentation perfectly conveys many of the instances of that period and instantly brings me back to those moments. It was amazing to see how everything fell into place with Oded (our singer) joining the band. It became clear in an instant that he was a missing element to the sound we evolved into.”
Singer Oded Weinstock adds:
“Upon listening to the pre-production tracks for Moonsblood, I knew that joining Binary Code would mean that I would need to step up my game. The stretch of time between joining the band to laying down the vocal tracks for Moonsblood was a period of complete transformation for me. That spirit of self awakening and finding this path comes out almost intuitively in the lyrics, melodies, and sounds of this album.”
Binary Code will support Moonsblood with rigorous touring, to be announced. Upcoming details such as track listing will be announced soon.
