As previously reported, MNEMIC recently posted a new 30-second teaser clip for their upcoming album, "Passenger", which is due out on February 6, 2007 via Nuclear Blast Records. Check it out at this location.
Commented the band: "This 30-second sound clip consists of the more extreme and diverse material of the album. It's still not enough to give you the whole picture, but basically the fast parts have become much faster and the technical more crazy..... and [by the way], this machine will break for nobody!"
Produced by FEAR FACTORY's Christian Olde Wolbers at Track Record Studios (KISS, MEGADETH, AEROSMITH) in Los Angeles, engineered by Warren Riker (DOWN, THE FUGEES), and mixed by fellow countryman Tue Madsen (HALFORD, THE HAUNTED) at Antfarm Studios in Denmark, "Passenger" features artwork by Asterik Studios (ANTHRAX, UNEARTH) plus guest vocal appearances by Jeff Walker (CARCASS, BRUJERIA) and Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, BRUJERIA).
