Aborym has revealed an impressive list of names behind their upcoming seventh album, SHIFTING.negative, along with the full trackilsting and cover made by French artist David Cragne (Asymetric Entity).
The new album has been engineered by Emiliano Natali (Fear No One Studios), Teo Pizzolante (Braingasm Lab) and Luciano Lamanna (Subsound Studios). In the nearest future it will be mixed and mastered by Grammy-award winning Marc Urselli, at Eastside Sound Studios (Lou Reed, John Zorn, Mike Patton).
Guido Elmi (Vasco Rossi's legendary producer and manager) has been revealed as the post-production sound supervisor behind SHIFTING.negative. Fabban commented:
"We are working with a real professional, a true legend, probably our biggest fan and a great friend. Please join us in welcoming Mr. Guido Elmi. No need to say Guido is Vasco Rossi’s producer and manager over the past 30 years and he has worked as a producer with dozens of artists including Stadio, Skiantos, Gaznevada, Steve Rogers Band, Clara & Black Cars and many others. Today he's also a singer and songwriter".
SHIFTING.negative was recorded with the following line-up:
- Fabban (founder): programming, modulars, synth and vocals
- Dan V (multi-instrumentalist): guitars and bass
- Davide Tiso (Niō, Gospel of the Witches, ex-Ephel Duath): guitars
- Stefano Angiulli: synths and keyboards
Aborym's ranks also include longtime band’s associate RG Narchost, who's also a live musician for the band.
