Connecticut metal band Dead By Wednesday, currently enjoying the success of their highly praised EMP Label group release Darkest Of Angels , is proud to announce the newest addition to their lineup.

With the complexity of their newer sound, they have decided to add a second guitar player to their lineup, that player is none other than Marc Rizzo of Soulfly/Cavalera Conspiracy and original songwriter / founding member of Ill Niño. A long-time friend and collaborator of DBW’s drummer, Opus, Rizzo is featured on DOA track, “The Surgeon.” He will be writing and recording on their next album and doing select tours and shows around his Soulfly schedule.

Marc Rizzo released the following statement:

“I am excited to announce that I will be joining one of my new favorite bands Dead by Wednesday! When I have time off from Soulfly, I will be playing shows and recording a new record with DBW!!! DBW newest record is one of the best records of this year, and I’m stoked to play live with these guys soon!!! LET’S shred!!”

The band recently released the video for “Live Again” (feat. Brian Fair of Shadows Fall).

Darkest Of Angels features 11 killer tracks with 11 heavyweight guest vocalists including, Brian Fair (Shadows Fall), Eric AK (Flotsam and Jetsam), John Arch (Fates Warning), Rob Dukes (Generation Kill, ex-Exodus), Carley Coma (Candiria), Waylon Reavis (ex-Mushroomhead), Sean Danielson (Smile Empty Soul), Paul Stoddard (Diecast), Kris Keyes (formerly Gargauntua Soul), Antony Linesmen (Armageddon) and Ceschi Ramos (Fake Four, Inc.).

Prior to the recording of Darkest Of Angels, the band parted ways with long-time singer Joe Morbidelli due to his ongoing battle with substance abuse. Despite the heartache and disappointment of his departure, the band continued to write, pouring their grief into their music. Instead of rushing into a replacement, the band decided to create an entire album featuring tracks sang, and co-written, with guest vocalists. The result is an eclectic and emotional concept album that showcases the raw talent of DBW’s writing combined with the unique style of each guest vocalist.

EMP has made 2 tracks available for streaming from their SOUNDCLOUD PAGE – “Darkest Of Angles (D.O.A.)”, featuring John Arch of Fates Warning, and “The Surgeon” featuring new permanent Dead By Wednesday vocalist Rob Roy.
