Floridian extreme metallers ORDER OF ENNEAD have finished recording their second album. The band have set AN EXAMINATION OF BEING as the title for the new album.

AN EXAMINATION OF BEING was recorded at Audio Hammer Studios in Sanford, Florida with producer Mark Lewis (TRIVIUM, CHIMAIRA, ALL THAT REMAINS), who also produced ORDER OF ENNEAD’s eponymous 2008 self-titled debut.

ORDER OF ENNEAD lead guitarist John Li comments:

“So what can I say about this new album? In my honest opinion, it’s much heavier and darker than our self-titled debut, more cohesive, thematic, melodic, but not completely over the top. In a nutshell, the works. To me, the songs sound totally different than the demos and I was blown away after the songs began to take form. They sound BIG.

“The recording process went as smooth as ever and the results were spectacular, due in part to the genius of our producer/engineer Mark Lewis. He’s got an ear like a bat and can spot an out of tune guitar a mile away; a real no-bullshit kind of guy who can really get it done in there.

“Kev’s guitars sound heavy as hell, Steve’s drums are tight and powerful, and I must say at the risk of tooting my own horn, I played some great stuff as well (shameless, I know).”
