Beneath The Massacre Montreal's death metal quartet BENEATH THE MASSACRE has unveiled artwork for the band's forthcoming record, 'Dystopia,' online in conjunction with the launch of pre-orders for the album. "After months of hard work in the studio, we finally have the master version of our new album entitled 'Dystopia,'" frontman Elliot Desgagnιs. "We are all very stoked by the new album as we feel that this is the best release we've ever done and we're impatient to share our songs with our fans. You can now pre-order 'Dystopia' from Prosthetic Records"

Recorded again with St-Amand (Despised Icon, Ion Dissonance, Neuraxis) and featuring artwork from Felix Rancourt, 'Dystopia' will see an Oct. 28 release through Prosthetic Records. The second in a series of in-studio video blogs online below from the recording process, with more updates to come soon. 'Dystopia' is the follow-up to 2007's 'Mechanics of Dysfunction,' the band's Prosthetic debut, which saw BENEATH THE MASSACRE hit the road with the likes of Necrophagist, Through The Eyes of the Dead, Ion Dissonance, 2007's inaugural Summer Slaughter tour and last year's Radio Rebellion Tour alongside Behemoth, Job For A Cowboy, and Gojira, among others.

The band is already hard at work on the road supporting the impending release of 'Dystopia.' "We're now ready to hit back the road starting with Canadian Summer Slaughter," Desgagnιs continues. "We'll then be on tour in the US with Necrophagist and back again in the US with Suicide Silence and Dillinger Escape Plan and we cannot wait to both play the new songs live and come back to the United States after a long time staying in Canada."
