Video footage of legendary New Orleans metallers EXHORDER performing a cover of the S.O.D. (STORMTROOPERS OF DEATH) classic "United Forces" on April 16, 2011 at Emo's in Austin, Texas, with a special guest appearance on vocals by Billy Milano (S.O.D., M.O.D.), can be viewed below (clip directed by Holderbeast).
EXHORDER tapped Jorge Caicedo (THE VOID, BUILT TO DESTROY) to play bass for the band's recent shows with RIGOR MORTIS.
The group's previous bassist, Frankie Sparcello, passed away on March 22.
EXHORDER vocalist Kyle Thomas recently said in a statement to BLABBERMOUTH.NET, "EXHORDER will get past these difficulties that face us at this moment. Even though we have already gotten into the writing process of our new album after working in new drummer Seth Davis, the time to focus on diving in to these songs could not be more imminent. We are aware that this recording is way overdue, but the inspiration could not be more tangible than it is now to deliver this to our fan base."
Sparcello joined EXHORDER prior to the recording sessions for the band's sophomore album, "The Law", which came out in 1992. The group broke up a short time later and reformed with its original lineup a few years later. Sparcello rejoined EXHORDER in 2009 and was scheduled to perform with the band at this year's Maryland Deathfest IX, which is set to take place May 26-29, 2011 at Sonar in Baltimore.
EXHORDER played the first concert with its new drummer Seth Davis on December 10, 2010 at The Hangar in the band's hometown.
