WORLD UNDER BLOOD, the melodic death metal side project of CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller, has uploaded its second completed track, "A God among the Waste", to its MySpace page.
WORLD UNDER BLOOD — which features Deron alongside drummer Tim Yeung (VITAL REMAINS, HATE ETERNAL) — recorded a total of three tracks during its recent sessions with engineer Logan Mader (MACHINE HEAD, SOULFLY): "Under the Autumn Low", "God Among the Waste", and "Dead and Still in Pain". Mixing duties are being handled by James Murphy (TESTAMENT, DEATH, OBITUARY).
Commented Miller: "James Murphy did an excellent job mixing this song, and I couldnt ask for it to be any better. This song truly exemplifies the unique dynamics of the band."
James Murphy stated: "WORLD UNDER BLOOD bridge a gap between genres that has never been bridged.... a few have tried with mixed results, but this is the first real resounding success of fusing brutal, blasting death metal with a melodic American rock vibe and it opens a door that will turn into a floodgate... I'm very happy to have been picked by Deron to mix this project ... he really pulls it together on this one musically and Tim's performance is stellar as well. Check it out!"
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 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.
