Bonded: "Rest In Violence" debut album out NOW Launch lyric video for title-track featuring very special guests!
Germany's BONDED, the new Thrash Metal group by former Sodom members Bernd "Bernemann" Kost (Guitars) and Markus "Makka" Freiwald (Drums), are releasing their debut album "Rest In Violence" today worldwide via Century Media Records.
BONDED, who also feature second guitarist Chris Tsitsis (ex-Suicidal Angels), bassist Marc Hauschild and vocalist Ingo Bajonczak (Assassin) in their line-up ranks, have created nothing short of a highly versatile and hard-hitting Thrash Metal debut together with producer Cornelius Rambadt (Sodom, Disbelief, Onkel Tom) at the Rambado Recording Studio in Essen, Germany. The album's artwork was created by Björn Gooßes / Killustrations (Aborted, The Crown, Carnal Forge).
Today BONDED are also debuting a lyric video for the album's title-track, "Rest In Violence", which features Overkill's Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth as guest vocalist as well as former Kreator bass-player Christian "Speesy" Giesler. Check out the clip designed by Cloud Music Typography here: https://youtu.be/S5ICGpWrGto
BONDED checked in with the following comment: "Hey Metalheadz! We are very excited to present you a lyric video for the title-track of our debut album "Rest In Violence"! We are proud to have some extraordinary guest-features by two well-known characters of the global Metal-scene on it: Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth (Overkill) and Christian "Speesy" Giesler (ex-Kreator).
