WORLD UNDER BLOOD, the melodic death metal side project of CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller, has uploaded its first completed track, "Dead and Still in Pain", to its MySpace page.
WORLD UNDER BLOOD — which features Deron alongside drummer Tim Yeung (VITAL REMAINS, HATE ETERNAL) — is recording a total of three tracks during its current sessions with engineer Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY): "Under the Autumn Low", "God Among the Waste", and "Dead and Still in Pain". Mastering duties will be handled by James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY). The band is currently seeking a bass player and second guitarist to complete the lineup for touring and recording activities during CKY's downtime.
Deron Miller is widely credited for conceiving the long-awaited DEATH tribute project, "Within The Mind - In Homage To The Musical Legacy Of Chuck Schuldiner", as a means to help guitarist James Murphy raise money for his medical bills (Murphy is currently receiving treatment for a massive brain tumor with which he was diagnosed in August 2001).
The project, which has the blessing of the family of late DEATH mastermind Chuck Schuldiner (who passed away in December 2001 after a battle with pontine glioma, a rare type of brain tumor), has been in the works for the last couple of years and is expected to feature a number of special guest appearances, including those by members of SLIPKNOT, NEVERMORE, FEAR FACTORY, STATIC-X, and MALEVOLENT CREATION.
