Riff Magazine has uploaded video footage of THANATOSCHIZO's performance at this year's Ilha do Ermal festival, which was held August 28-30 in Vieira do Minho, Portugal. The nine-minute clip, which can be viewed below, also includes a Portuguese-language interview with the band's guitarist, Guilhermino Martins.
THANATOSCHIZO is currently recording a new, semi-acoustic album for an early 2010 release. The CD is being tracked in two different facilities: Teatro de Vila Real in their hometown, Vila Real; and the group's own Blind & Lost Studios in Santa Marta de Penaguião, Portugal. For the first time, the bandmembers are assuming the production duties themselves and are being assisted by sound engineers Pedro Cabral and Paulo Almeida.
The as-yet-untitled CD will contain reworked songs from all THANATOSCHIZO albums — "Schizo Level", "InsomniousNightLift", "Turbulence" and "Zoom Code" — featuring an even more avant-garde approach with ethnical and progressive distinctive touches, already hinted on the band's "regular" releases.
The CD will be released by Major Label Industries and will contain some collaborations that the band will announce in due course.
THANATOSCHIZO's fourth album, "Zoom Code", was released in March 2008 via My Kingdom Music (Recital Records in Portugal). The CD was produced by Luis Barros (TARANTULA) and was mastered by Tommy Newton (CONCEPTION, HELLOWEEN). It featured guest appearances by Svein Egil Hatlevik (ZWEIZZ, FLEURETY, ex-DØDHEIMSGARD) and Timb Harris of ESTRADASPHERE/SECRET CHIEFS 3.
