US deathcore act Suicide Silence confirmed they will be entering studio this week to kick off the recording sessions of their new album, the first one since last year's death of singer Mitch Lucker. The news comes as somewhat of a follow-up to the announcement of now former All Shall Perish singer Hernan "Eddie" Hermida taking over the vocalist duties. As the group also pointed out, Steve Evetts will be in charge of album production. "This record will be the grittiest, most meaningful piece of work we've ever stood behind," reads the Facebook announcement. "We cannot wait for everyone to hear it. Steve Evetts is someone we've worked closely with for a long while, not only on The Black Crown, but also on some instrumental demos just prior to the tragedy last Fall. Here we are a year later prepping to record the nastiest, heaviest, most disgusting work we've ever done. Expect the unexpected. This is for Mitch." Hermida recently gave fans a reassurance that he's capable of delivering a top-notch performance worthy of the group's legacy by just briefly saying "Trust me! I got this.
"We are writing as I am typing this!" he told Metal Injection. "So stoked to see this all come together. Such a different writing process. A lot of musical clay molding going on. Expect heavy, expect different." The announcement was accompanied with a studio photo below. The band's latest studio effort, "The Black Crown," dropped in July 2011 through Century Media Records.
