"Kindred Assembly" and "The Traumatic", two brand new songs from Virginian death/thrash metal veterans metal DECEASED, can be streamed in the YouTube clips below. Both tracks come off "Surreal Overdose", the band's first full-length of all-new material since 2005's "As The Weird Travel On". The long-running metal maestros have kept the faith since 1985, summoning a slew of cult releases and building up an immensely dedicated fanbase that has followed the band merrily into hell and back. Now, at the dawn of 2011, King Fowley and his band of 'bangers have returned!
Fowley has returned to the drum kit for this recording, handling both drums and vocals. The band welcomed in longtime live member Shane Fuegel on guitar (replacing longtime axeman Mark Adams who retired from music in 2007), while Mike Smith continues on studio guitar alongside longtime bassist Les Snyder.
"Surreal Overdose" was recorded at Assembly Line Studios in Virginia with Kevin Gutierrez engineering and Fowley producing. The CD will be issued on May 13 in the U.S. via the band's own label, Shrieks From The Hearse Records, alongside PATAC Records. Hell's Headbangers will handle the vinyl edition, while overseas distribution will be announced shortly.
