Sourvein have entered SSP Studio in Raleigh, North Carolina with Corrosion Of Conformity’s Mike Dean behind the soundboards to begin tracking their forthcoming record, Aquatic Occult. The effort is scheduled for release later this year through Metal Blade Records and will include a two-track collaboration between Sourvein frontman, Troy “T-Roy” Medlin, and guitarist “Stig” Miller of UK crust punk icons Amebix. More details will be revealed in the weeks to come.
Frontman Troy “T-Roy” Medlin was recently interviewed by Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe for a biography he has written about the band. Medlin said the following of the record:
“Finally, man. Finally. It’s the record I wanted to make when I was in those rooming houses, but I couldn’t. There was too much pain, so I got lost for bit, falling back into the party life and trying to numb myself with alcohol. But motherfuckers need to feel the pain. There is more to life than numbing yourself. I’m going to bring the truth. The lyrics are reality to me; I don’t write about cars or chicks or fucking horror movies, I write about getting my nose fucking broken, all the stuff I saw growing up and now. But I want it to be positive, to let people know that there is a way out of bad times and tough situations. I’m living proof.”
