California's DEATHRIDE, the new project featuring COAL CHAMBER frontman Dez Fafara, have inked a deal with Roadrunner Records.The group — whose lineup is completed by Dragon (guitar), Shak (bass), Sleeper (guitar), and Junk (drums) — will enter the studio early next year with producer Ross Hogarth (COAL CHAMBER, MÖTLEY CRÜE, FASTER PUSSYCAT) to begin recording their debut album for a late spring/early summer release. So far, DEATHRIDE have completed over two dozen cuts for their forthcoming debut, which will reportedly feature a more aggressive and more technical direction than that of Fafara's main outfit. Among the tracks set to appear on the band's upcoming CD are the following: 01. Devil's Son
02. Swinging The Dead
03. Revelation Machine
04. Driving Down The Darkness
05. The Misery
06. What Does It Take To Be A Man
08. Give It
10. The Darkness When recently asked about the rumors that PANTERA/DOWN frontman Phil Anselmo would be making an appearance on DEATHRIDE's full-length debut, Dez stated: "Phil's one of my closest friends. I'd be honored if he'd sing on [a] DEATHRIDE [album], and of course I'm going to ask him. We have the perfect song for it. It's called 'What Does It Take To Be A Man'."
