KATAKLYSM guitarist Jean François Dagenais has been tapped to produce the new album from Brazilian metallers PSYCHOTIC EYES. He had previously worked with the band on their latest album, I Only Smile Behind The Mask. Still untitled, the new album is in the pre-production phase and will be released in the first semester of 2013.
Vocalist/guitarist Dimitri Brandi comments:
"One of the most touching moments of my career as musician happened when I listened, for the first time, one Psychotic Eyes song mixed by Dagenais. He was starting to work on what would turn our second album, and sent me the track 'Welcome Fatality', already mixed, for me 'to see what I thought.' The song was perfect, with all the timbres brutal and aggressive, but without loosing clarity and definition. Just like I always thought how Psychotic Eyes should sound. We are very excited to work with him again. The recordings will happen in Brazil, but the mixing and mastering will be done on his new studio in Dallas (USA). This time he invited us to follow the job personally, I hope it works, will be a great lesson".
As for Jean François Dagenais, the continuing of a work brings expressive results: "It was a great experience to have worked with Psychotic Eyes on I Only Smile Behind The Mask. It's very good to have the privilege to work with the same band with several albums because it makes you grown with the musicians and develop a work dynamic that, I believe, brings very good results."
