Arizona’s Go Ahead And Die are proud to announce that their self-titled debut album will be released on June 11th via Nuclear Blast Records. G.A.A.D. are a raw and thrillingly shocking new band, consisting of members Max Cavalera, Igor Amadeus Cavalera and Zach Coleman.
Today they have released their first music video, directed by Jim Louvau and Tony Aguilera, accompanying first single, Truckload Full Of Bodies.
Max Cavalera comments, “Truckload Full of Bodies is a dark x-ray of the COVID-19 pandemic. It examines the way certain politicians in 2020 didn’t care about their citizens. Hypocrites took care of themselves, and did not care about the rest of us dying.”
Igor Amadeus states, “Like a riot breaking through your windows, G.A.A.D. arrives with a revolting mix of punk and metal, the perfect soundtrack to these dismal times.”
Zach Coleman comments, “Truckload Full of Bodies is a battering ram and fist in the face of those in power who had no problem watching so many people die. I think it perfectly sets the tone for the album.
Born from the minds of creative writer and musician Igor Amadeus Cavalera of Healing Magic and extreme metal icon Max Cavalera, Go Ahead And Die‘s tempos are wild, filled with a palpable contempt for modern social ills, packed with monstrous, captivating riffs. They make angry, spiteful, spirited extreme music for increasingly extreme times.
The self-titled debut sees Max and Igor splitting guitar and vocal duties, with madman style drumming from Zach Coleman of blistering band Black Curse and critically-acclaimed Khemmis. G.A.A.D. sound like a relic from the glory days of thrash, proto-death metal, and filthy rotten punk.
The vocals weren’t tracked over and over in the pursuit of some kind of “perfect” takes, and Coleman didn’t play to a click-track. The heart and soul of G.A.A.D. is all about just going for it, the traditional way. Engineer Charles Elliot captured the sessions with the help of Platinum Underground Studio owner John Aquilino. The album was mixed by Arthur Rizk, whose credits include Power Trip, Cro-Mags, and Cavalera Conspiracy The artwork for the album was created by Stewart Easton while the circle logo was created by Jeff Walker (Carcass).
