Louisiana-based experimental project PSYCHOMETRY has tapped SUFFOCATION drummer Mike Smith to perform and record on its upcoming album, entitled "The Four Points".

According to a press release, PSYCHOMETRY is an atmospheric, melodic metal band made up of professional musicians experienced in several different styles of music. The project's sound ranges from symphonic, classical and electronic to extreme underground metal.

PSYCHOMETRY blends a wide variety of the world's music and is formed as a collection of composers so as not to be placed into a specific genre of music.

Mike Smith states: "The change in musical direction form the norm of death metal is a welcome one. It gives me the opportunity to retrain myself to play with the goal of appealing to listeners of multiple genres."

Gino Alache from conducted an interview with Mike Smith on February 11. During the 19-minute chat, Smith revealed the working title of the next SUFFOCATION album: "Blood Oath". According to Mike, the CD will be recorded by June for a tentative August/September release.
