Legendary Floridian Death Metal band KILLING ADDICTION have just launched the first single from their long awaited second full-length album, Mind of a New God, due for release on CD, 12″LP, Cassette and Digital on June 1st 2021 through XTREEM MUSIC.
Following the death of guitarist and original member Chad Bailey (the brother of vocalist/ bassist Pat Bailey) in September 2016, the rest of the members carried on in his memory. The new album is named after the last song the band wrote with Chad before his demise.
For the recording of Mind of a New God, the band returned to Helton Music Studios, where they recorded their last two releases. Artwork for the album comes via Samuel Araya (CRADLE OF FILTH, ELVENKING, DARK MOOR, etc.)
The tracklist for Mind of a New God is as follows:
1. Mind of a New God
2. As Utopia Burns
3. Prophecy Armageddon
4. Destroyer of Worlds
5. Lives Unworthy of Life
6. Dark Realm Atrocity
7. Condemned to Nothingness
8. The Chaos Older than Time
9. Altered at Birth
Killing Addiction sprang to life way back in 1988 and their debut full length album, Omega Factor, was a lethal killing machine which combined grind, thrash and death metal to thrilling effect.
With the kind of death/thrash riffs that Malevolent Creation used to (and still do) excel at – alongside the kind of intricate solo’s Uncle Chuck introduced into Death’s repertoire circa Spiritual Healing onwards – there was always an enjoyably clean and crisp sound to Killing Addiction’s brand of death metal.
And, while the brutality was clear to hear, so was that all important groove; relentless savagery laced with an old-school energy and catchiness that demanded neck-snapping head movements of the most furious kind!
