Vision of Disorder will enter Frankie Nasso’s Staten Island-based Nova Studios on July 5 to begin tracking the follow-up to 2012’s The Cursed Remain Cursed. The album will be produced by Zeus (Agnostic Front, Crowbar, Hatebreed, Whitechapel). A late autumn release date is expected. It will be the band’s second album for Candlelight Records.
“We are so very happy to see the songs starting to come together,” says vocalist Tim Williams. “The new songs are dark, heavy, and melodic in a way only Vision Of Disorder can deliver.” A few working song titles for the still-to-be-named album include “Razed to the Ground,” “War On The Police,” and “Nightcrawler.”
Williams conducted an interview with Cryptic Rock to discuss the band’s recently reissued debut ep, Still. “Still has something of a cult following and I think it is worth getting it back out there for those that want to hear it and to maybe grab a few new people who may not have heard it before.” Limited copies of the 20th Year Anniversary 12-inch vinyl pressing are available via Dignified Bastard. Featuring three additional songs not on the original 7-inch, the anniversary edition is getable on six different colors.
Lambgoat called The Cursed Remain Cursed, “a rock-solid return for the seminal metalcore act. Credit V.O.D. for taking such a long hiatus and coming back just as sharp and pissed-off as anyone could hope.” The album, produced by Will Putney (Poison The Well, Suicide Silence, The Acacia Strain) and mixed by Cameron Webb (Ignite, Pennywise), was the band’s first new album in a decade. On its release mid-September 2012 The PRP said, “the effort more than lives up to the high bar the band have previously set. Truly Vision of Disorder‘s long-awaited return sees them emerging even more fearsome.” Revolver Magazine called it “a welcome return.”
One of the most innovative and widely admired bands to emerge from the collision between hardcore and metal, Vision Of Disorder exploded from the streets of Long Island in 1996. “Vision Of Disorder took a much needed baseball bat to the head of stagnant hardcore,” noted Decibel when describing the band’s unique sound. Twenty three years on from their formation, the band continues to deliver a heady brew of savage riffing and fearless proclamations that merge their sonic past with new vitality.
