THE THREAT REMAINS AND IS VERY REAL: the band's second full length album has been recorded with the help of engineer DEREK SAXENMEYER between PRAGUE’s FAUST RECORDS and SARDINIA’s CRIMSON DOME STUDIOS. the new set of 12 tracks features MASSIMO USAI (vocals / guitars / signals) and SARA MELIS (dst keyboards / harmonies) with czech newcomer PETR STUDIHRAD on drums.

January 2010, Prague (CZECH REPUBLIC): with a worn copy of BILL GIBSON's SOUND ADVICE ON MIXING resting on his desk, and the urge to snap pictures at the local surroundings, USAI is sitting next to DEREK SAXENMAYER as JAZ COLEMAN is tracking vocals for the new KILLING JOKE album, down in the depths of FAUST RECORDS. After asking and being granted an internship of sorts in the studios, he is living along with MELIS in the same building where PAUL VINCENT RAVEN spent most of 2005 and 2006 right before joining MINISTRY. The incredible atmosphere inspires the two during the creation of new songs, as the creative environment provides them with a number of chance meetings: one among many being PETR STUDIHRAD (drums, hits, fills), who is helping Czech punk legends VISACÍ ZÁMEK record their upcoming release. Highly impressed by his rock-solid beats, USAI submits the drummer with the new demos and in a matter of hours receives total approval and full-time committment.

The trio spends the summer between FAUST and SYPE STUDIOS to complete pre-production, and finally enter the “basements of hell” in late September to lay down drums with the help of SAXENMAYER. The band then returns to Sardinia to carefully craft bass, guitars, keyboards and vocals at THE CRIMSON DOME, and finalizes mixing and mastering under USAI's direction within early November of 2010. THE THREAT REMAINS AND IS VERY REAL, the band's sophomore effort, is comprised of 12 new tracks which display a larger emotive spectre and champion feelings previously unexplored, while retaining the haunting aural quality of the outfit's sonic experimentations.

As of now, USAI, MELIS and STUDIHRAD have been joined by FEDERICO LOCHE (bass, buzz) and are getting ready to support the album's release (set for January 21, 2011) with a number of live dates, while currently putting finishing touches to the MAKING OF documentary video which will be made available for buyers of the physical album.

about

recs of the flesh Sardinien, Italy

- "A blast of snarling, animal energy, blending speedy riffs and punchy cannon snares with shuddering tremolo keyboards and a jagged, unraveling lyrical delivery - RECS OF THE FLESH are back stronger than ever with Fear, Lies and Collapsing Comets, by far their darkest, most disturbing and compelling work to date. ” Gregory Burkart, FEARnet.com ... more
