After nearly 10 years of absence, the world’s most brutal band recently muscled their way back into the scene with a brand new single, “No Pain No Gain”, while teasing an upcoming new album. Today, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE - the unmissable project helmed by As I Lay Dying frontman Tim Lambesis - is thrilled to finally announce their first new album in a decade, Quad Brutal, scheduled for release on February 23, 2024 via Napalm Records.
Featuring 10 tracks of heavyweight thrash-infused extremity and sprint-worthy speed, Quad Brutal will instantly have listeners coming back for more - ready for endless reps and skipping nothing (except maybe leg day). In historic AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE fashion, Quad Brutal is supported by a slew of guests on each track - in addition to vocal contributions from Dany Lambesis (HELLBØRN), tracks on Quad Brutal are supercharged by professional bodybuilders and vocalists Craig Golias and Rob Bailey, vocalist Ricky Hoover (Ov Sulfur, ex-Suffokate), guitar virtuosos Angel Vivaldi, Clayton King, Brandon Richter (Bleeding Through), Joey Alarcon (Wolves at the Gate, Born Through Fire) and more. Oh, and Ahhnold himself, of course!
Check out a taste of what's to come on Quad Brutal now with another brand new single, "Don't Be Lazy", out today alongside a muscle-bound music video. Once again featuring guest vocals from pro-bodybuilder Craig Golias, the death-meets-metalcore burner explodes with colossal strength - beckoning all gym bros to pull their weight and give their all… or else!
Tim Lambesis says about "Don't Be Lazy":
"I can proudly say that 'Don't Be Lazy' is the least brutal song on Quad Brutal because it's still crushing, ramping up to 280 bpm, and features the largest human to ever scream into a microphone. Ahhnold wanted me to create an anthem that even the biggest idiots in the gym can remember so they don't forget to re-rack their weights. Other than that, there’s NOTHING LEFT to say. Don’t put other people THROUGH STRUGGLE in re-racking your weights."
