CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller has sent the following updated to BLABBERMOUTH.NET:
"After CKY's last tour of Europe, I came home with some time off. I got together with 'the cyclone' drummer Tim Yeung [VITAL REMAINS, HATE ETERNAL] and we're heading into the studio October 27 here in L.A. with producer/engineer Logan Mader [MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY] to record three brutal tracks for our band WORLD UNDER BLOOD. This music is the most honest and brutal material I've ever written. It's the sickest shit I've ever heard, but I don't want to say too much about it because i know that confidence sets off negative opinions. James Murphy [TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY] will be mixing! Songtitles and band members will be announced officially very soon. I've also been working hard on the fourth CKY studio album, which will be released next year."
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.
