MARK: What can fans expect from Age of Obliteration?
REID: So far the songs have taken a much more technical & progressive direction. Compared to the debut album, we feel each song has a much more coherent structure.
M: What interesting challenges has the pandemic presented to recording, mixing and mastering the new EP?
R: We’re still in the recording process at the moment, but being as the recording/mixing/mastering is all done internally this hasn’t been much of a challenge so far. The biggest issue we’ve faced is getting members together to record safely, especially considering our drummer is located in Alberta. Almost all of the string sections are being recorded DI, rather than mic’ing so there’s very little actual studio time that will be required.
M: How big of a circle pit is too big?
Age of Obliteration is set to drop some time in Fall of 2021, for now, however, Wasted Heretics' 2019 debut album, Beneath Buried Bones, can be found Apple Music, Spotify and Bandcamp.
