Former MORBID ANGEL frontman David Vincent has contributed guest vocals to “Manufacturing Evil”, the sophomore album from Des Moines thrash merchants GREEN DEATH. Vincent appears on the track “Gates Of Hell”, which can be streamed below.
“Manufacturing Evil” will be released on April 1 through MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson‘s EMP imprint through the legendary label Megaforce.
GREEN DEATH was brought to EMP‘s attention via SLIPKNOT/STONE SOUR frontman Corey Taylor after performing at the 2015 edition of SLIPKNOT‘s Knotfest. Initially released independently, the reissued version of the critically acclaimed “Manufacturing Evil” will feature some new mixes, mastering, and surprises, including guest vocals by Vincent.
With the core of the band playing together for well over a decade, GREEN DEATH — consisting of vocalist Sol Bales, drummer Ryan Berrier, guitarists Erich Tran and Mark Reinking and bassist Parker Willis — has become a staple in the Midwest metal scene, earning their stripes playing alongside artists like SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, SEVENDUST, TRIVIUM, SLIPKNOT, DYING FETUS and more, and releasing two critically acclaimed LPs.
Says Ellefson: “From the minute I heard GREEN DEATH, I knew these guys were doing something different; one foot firmly planted in the roots of classic thrash, the other pushing the boundaries of metal forward. These guys definitely have something special. An amazing, progressive band, with an amazing work ethic. And the connection with Corey, who I love, and the introduction coming from him via Thom [Hazaert, EMP A&R director]. It was just a no-brainer.”
