In an interview with Hidden Throne zine DEFLESHED‘s Gustaf revealed the following news: "In June we’ll record our new album in Berno Studios for three weeks. It will be titled ”Royal Straight Flesh” and the music will definitely sound like Defleshed only that we mix in a few heavier parts like for example on the ”Under The Blade” album. Yet there are a lot more songs to write, but I think ”Royal Straight Flesh” will disappoint no one that liked us before…" To read the complete interview, go to: www.hiddenthrone.tk
