Oakland-based purveyors of violence WATCH THEM DIE have crafted a stunning new offering, *Bastard Son*, which is a multi-layered exploration of anger, pain, loss and redemption. The highly anticipated new offering, mixed by Tue Madsen (Heaven Shall Burn, Himsa, The Haunted), is now available and a video for the title track will be shot on Wednesday, Sept. 14th with acclaimed director Kevin Leonard (Diecast, Walls of Jericho). The group\\'s metal crusade in support of their new album began earlier this summer on a two-month trek supporting Soilent Green and will continue through the fall in support of Exodus and 3 Inches of Blood; look below for the complete tour itinerary.
Whether you\\'re talking about legendary speed pioneers like Exodus or masters of heaviness like Sleep and Neurosis, the Bay Area has always been a breeding ground for various forms of extreme music and expression. WATCH THEM DIE have fearlessly positioned themselves as heirs to this crushing tradition of excellence, confronting a metal heritage that has left many an inferior band swimming in their own blood and excrement.
With *Bastard Son*, WATCH THEM DIE have raised the bar, crafting a record that will be a formidable calling card on their planned two year obliteration of the U.S. in 2005-2006. The group also presents a multi-dimensional, unapologetic reflection of reality that is definitely not for the weak or timid. Bastard Son is simply raw metal violence unleashed.
