"Horror metal" supergroup DENIAL FIEND is putting the finishing touches on its follow-up to 2007's "They Rise" for a late 2010 release via Ibex Moon Records. According to guitarist Sam Williams, the as-yet-untitled CD will contain eight "gore-filled tracks," including "Hell Asylum", which will feature guest guitar solos from Steve Swanson (SIX FEET UNDER, MASSACRE), Ralph Santolla (DEICIDE, OBITUARY, ICED EARTH) and James Murphy (DEATH, TESTAMENT, OBITUARY). All of the guitar and drum tracks for the new album have been completed and the bass and vocals are nearly done. Mixing is set to begin at the end of March.Regarding the direction the band has taken since recruiting new members last year, Williams stated, "Whether it's the infusion of the new members and their particular backgrounds or just the way we were going already... the new album is faster, thrashier, heavier and tighter. Old-school crossover hardcore/thrash meets death metal." DENIAL FIEND 2010 is: * Terry Butler (SIX FEET UNDER, ex-MASSACRE, ex-DEATH) - Bass
* Sam Williams (DOWN BY LAW, PSEUDO HEROES) - Guitar
* Rob Rampy (D.R.I.) - Drums
* Blaine Cook (THE ACCUSED, TOE TAG) - Vocals
