With a new lineup firmly in place, the heaviest band to ever rock the Maldives, SERENITY DIES, has announced that it has begun writing new material with recently added guitarist/vocalist Jared MacEachern (ex-SANCTITY). Fans of the group's debut EP, "Hacksawcracy", can expect to see the bands crushing, yet melodic modern thrash sound taken to the next level. MacEachern stated, "I'm really excited to join SERENITY DIES. This band is exactly what I was looking for and I'm stoked that they asked me to be a part of it! We've already got our collective creative juices flowing, and newsongs are in the works. We're all really looking forward to breaking some heads!"Taking inspiration from the likes of MEGADETH and METALLICA with a uniquely modern twist that emphasizes memorable songwriting, surgically precise riffing, and one hell of a rhythmic punch, the Maldives-based act sprints out of the blocks with refreshing vigor. Released in July, "Hacksawcracy" features guest appearances by Rob Caggiano (ANTHRAX) and Mikko Salovaara (KIUAS) who perform guitar solos on "Psycho Ride" and "Dystopian Law", respectively. "Hacksawcracy" was produced/mixed by Anssi Kippo (CHILDREN OF BODOM) alongside Grammy Award-winning engineer Gavin Lurssen ("Slumdog Millionaire", "Across the Universe", "Iron Man", GUNS N' ROSES, ROB ZOMBIE, ALICE COOPER).
