Dutch Death/Thrash metal brigade KILL DIVISION has released the first single from their debut album Destructive Force, out October 11th/14th in Europe/UK via Metal Blade Records.
The first single, Locked Up Forever, was written by Susan Gerl, who penned the lyrics for the entire record. The song was written about Natascha Kampusch, an Austrian woman who was held prisoner and tormented in a cellar for over eight years. The story made headlines in 2006 worldwide. Fans can hear Locked Up Forever now at metalblade.com/killdivision.
Comments KILL DIVISION: “Locked Up Forever is a perfect representation of what ‘Destructive Force’ is all about: fast and brutal riffs, deep growls and aggressive screams and slow, heavy parts topped with melodic leads.”
Fans can also pre-order the album which will be available as a limited first edition Digipak-CD, on vinyl and as a digital download at metalblade.com/killdivision. There’s also a shirt bundle available!
Taking their experiences from Legion of the Damned, God Dethroned, Asphyx, andInhume, Richard Ebisch (guitars, bass, vocals), Susan Gerl (guitars, vocals) and Roel Sanders (drums) decided it was time to release their combined sound on the World with their debut album Destructive Force.
Both Richard Ebisch and Susan Gerl tracked the vocals for Destructive Force. This is something neither guitarist had done in the past. Gerl comments, “recording the vocals was initially a challenge for us since we are first and foremost guitarists. Neither of us had any experience with singing that long and that much and recording our vocals this way. I used to do some additional vocals with my previous bands but had never recorded any vocals for a full length CD. But we were really well-prepared and had practiced our singing extensively beforehand. The recordings went smoothly and we are really happy with the way our voices sound on the album.”
On Destructive Force, expect a practiced, precise, and mercilessly heavy attack from three veterans of the European death metal scene!
Destructive Force was recorded at Toneshed studio, the place they called home for many late nights and mixed and mastered at Andy Classen’s Stage One studio with hammer, care, and kerosine.
