WORLD UNDER BLOOD: 'Tactical' Cover Artwork Unveiled

The cover artwork for "Tactical", the long-awaited debut album from WORLD UNDER BLOOD the melodic death metal side project featuring CKY guitarist/vocalist Deron Miller alongside Tim Yeung (MORBID ANGEL, DIVINE HERESY, VITAL REMAINS, HATE ETERNAL) on drums, Risha Eryavec (DECREPIT BIRTH) on bass, and Luke Jaeger on guitar can be seen below. The artwork was brought to life by the twisted mind of Pr Olofsson (IMMORTAL, THE FACELESS, ABYSMAL DAWN).

"A God Among The Waste", a brand new song from WORLD UNDER BLOOD, is available for streaming at this location. The track comes off "Tactical", which is scheduled for release on July 26 in North America and July 29 in Europe via Nuclear Blast Records.

Commented Miller: "'A God Among The Waste', to me, is an instant classic because it melts your face right at the start and then concludes with an opposing mellow ending. I'm told it has a great chorus and it's the first time I've recorded a guitar solo in 15 years. The first eight or so seconds are the fastest the album ever gets and because of that, I made it the album opener so people are brutalized as soon as they press play. No bullshit intros or scary gothic synths; it just gets going faster than you can probably handle it."

In an early 2010 online posting, Miller stated about the WORLD UNDER BLOOD debut, "The goal for the eight original tunes that ended up on this album was that they would all be super-fast, extremely brutal and harsh, catchy, melodic, and occasionally offensive and disturbing. I also had to make sure that the entire band was satisfied with their work.

"Tim Yeung is easily the most impressive drummer in the world. He thinks that some kid is going to come along and dethrone him speed-wise, but as far as writing, arrangements, creative input and immediate knowledge of song structure, he will never be beat. It's like the guy can read my mind. I present a somewhat intricate song to him and 50 minutes later we're demoed and done."

"Tactical" tentative track listing (not final sequence):

Guitarist-turned-producer James Murphy, who worked on "Tactical", previously stated about the project, "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."

* Deron Miller (CKY) - Guitar/Vocals
