DEADLOCK: Entire New Album Available For Streaming

"Bizarro World", the new album from Germany's DEADLOCK, can be streamed in its entirety at Metal-Hammer.de. Due on February 28 in Europe and March 16 in the U.S. via Lifeforce Records, the CD was recorded at Slaughter's Palace studio and was once again produced and engineered by the band's musical mastermind and guitar/sound wizard Sebastian Reichl.

The limited-edition digipak version of "Bizarro World" and the digital version will contain two remixes as bonus tracks.

"State Of Decay" was released as a digital single on February 7.

The "Virus Jones" video can be viewed below. The clip was filmed in Leipzip, Germany with directors Philipp Hirsch and Heiko Tippelt (HEAVEN SHALL BURN, TRIPTYKON, AMON AMARTH), and attempts to capture the meaning behind the track's lyrics, which deal with pharmaceutical, medical, and biological technology, and the business behind it.

"Mankind has been suffering from diseases for years, blaming it on viruses or whatever, taking medicines and all kinds of medical treatments, but never asking twice, just consuming to forget about its fears," said DEADLOCK vocalist Johannes Prem. "It's all about promoting new products and finding new therapies, but it is never about really helping the patients. In the end you have the choice whether you want to die for fear of the disease, from the disease itself, or because of the side effects of your medicines. The video shows every band member as an individual playing alone on that stage called life."

DEADLOCK's last album, "Manifesto", was released in Europe in November 2008 via Lifeforce Records.
