London shred-heavy melodic metallers SAVAGE MESSIAH have set THE FATEFUL DARK as the title of their upcoming new album, which is due to be released on March 10th in Europe via Earache Records and on March 18th in the USA via Century Media/Earache Records.
The follow-up to 2012's PLAGUE OF CONSCIENCE was recorded at Grindstone Studios in Suffolk, England with producer SCOTT ATKINS (AMON AMARTH, SYLOSIS, BEHEMOTH) and features artwork created by PETER SALLAI (SABATON).
SAVAGE MESSIAH frontman DAVE SILVER comments:
"We're finally ready to unleash this record on the world! After the months of hard work and preparation, we are proud to announce all the details for the forthcoming record. This is easily our best record to date and we've been playing most of it live since we toured with Wintersun in July and the reaction to the songs in a live environment has been killer! Hopefully you'll all enjoy listening to this one, and we look forward to seeing you all out on tour in 2014!!!"
