French post black metallers DECLINE OF THE I are back in studio recording what will become their fourth album and follow-up to “Escape” (2018). The yet-untitled release is expected to commence a new trilogy, conceptually based on the works of Danish philosopher, Søren Kierkegaard.

The drums have been recorded in Hybreed Studios (Temple Of BaalRitualizationMerrimack) late May, with plans to record all other instruments over the next few weeks at a private studio. Reamping and mixing will be handled at Drudenhaus Studio (AlcestAlukTodoloDrastus) early July. More album details are yet to be revealed, excluding the visual part; Dehn Sora (Deathspell OmegaBlus aus Nord) will be taking care of the artwork, whereas David Fitt (PerturbatorAlcest) will shoot new band photos.
