Coming back strong off 2008s 'Memories Of A Dying Whore' - the group's most successful and critically-acclaimed album - 'The Ultimate Deception' continues where the previous album left off and continues to push the boundaries of extreme music as well as the legacy of Wykked Wytch.

'The Ultimate Deception' is scheduled for release on February 14th 2012.

Led by the demonic vocal assault of frontwoman Ipek, Wykked Wytch is a female-fronted extreme Metal band hailing from South Florida. The band blends a unique mixture of black, death, thrash Metal with melody, technicality, and aggression to create their own signature sound which has gained them a strong cult following throughout the world.

Regarding the recent signing and forthcoming release, Ipek made the following comments; "We are very excited and proud to announce that Wykked Wytch has signed with Goomba Music for the release of our fifth full-length album 'The Ultimate Deception'. Over the past two years we worked really hard creating a modern Metal masterpiece and with Goomba behind us we will spread the word worldwide.

"We would also like to thank Mark and the crew at Goomba for this new partnership. It was the right choice for us and glad to know there is an experienced team of industry vets behind the label that respect the integrity of their artists. Look out for the new album 'The Ultimate Deception' out in 2012 with lots of touring to follow!"

'The Ultimate Deception' marks the addition of lead guitarist/songwriter Nate Poulson to the group. Always determined to break new ground and discover new talent, frontwoman/founder Ipek has teamed with Nate, who composed nine badass tunes that add a whole new dimension and flavour to the band's constantly evolving sound.

Taking a modern approach to the group's already established sound, the songs are heavy, technical, and melodic with each one standing on its own. Showcased on this release are vocalist Ipek's true abilities that drive the album.

Not afraid to take chances, Ipek doesn't hold back and has stepped out of her comfort zone; moving from death growls to high pitched screams to operatic, and clean catchy choruses in the course of a single song. The intense and insane vocals are performed by "one" woman, not three different vocalists.

Also featured is one of the best drummers in Metal today, Kevin Talley (Daath, Six Feet Under, Chimaira), who appears as a session musician, compliments the songs with his killer double bass and blast work.

The album was recorded in April/May 2011 at Lambesis Studios in San Diego, CA with amazing production from engineer Daniel Castleman (As I Lay Dying, Winds of Plague), who recorded and mixed. Finishing touches were handled by Alan Douches (The Dillinger Escape Plan, The Black Dahlia Murder), who mastered at West West Side Music in New Windsor, NY. Cover Artwork by Marcelo Vasco (Dimmu Borgir, The Faceless).

'The Ultimate Deception' includes ten tracks with a running time of 47 minutes. Nine original tracks and a cover of Metallica's 'Fade To Black'.


NOW AEROSMITH FANS CAN HAVE THEIR NAME IN FUTURE COLLECTOR'S ITEM

Here's a fabulous Aerosmith pictorial document as seen through the lens of famed British photographer Tony Mottram. Tony photographed the band over many years for various magazines and now has a monthly column here on MetalTalk.

As was often the case, only one photo ever got published and in the fast moving world of weekly magazines sometimes entire sessions would be done and left undeveloped.

Tony started shooting Aerosmith from towards the end of the period with Jimmy Crespo and Rick Dufay and onwards through the return of original members Joe Perry and Brad Whitford that resulted in the albums 'Done With Mirrors', 'Permanent Vacation' and 'Pump'.
