GENERATION KILL, the crossover metal outfit featuring EXODUS frontman Rob Dukes, has released the first in a five-part series of video blogs (see below) documenting the making of the band's as-yet-untitled debut album. The clip was shot in two locations — at North Rockland Studios in West Haverstraw, New York and J. Rod Production Studios in New City, New York (where the vocal tracks for EXODUS' "Let There Be Blood" and OVERKILL's "Ironbound" were previously laid down).
GENERATION KILL has inked a two-album deal with an as-yet-undisclosed European label. The band, whose lineup also includes Rob Moschetti (ex-PRO-PAIN, M.O.D.) on bass and Sam Inzerra (MORTICIAN) on drums, is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on its first CD for a March 2011 release.
According to a press release, "The original concept of the band was to break away from the current formula by embracing their roots and incorporating them into the project.
"GENERATION KILL is a true crossover band. Each song has its own identity, and mood, which gives the band its original sound without abandoning their influences.
"By adding two lead guitarist/songwriters to the band, a whole new dimension has been introduced to GENERATION KILL.
"While Jason Trenczer adds technical guitar work, Lou Lehman adds catchy riffs and solos. The final ingredient to the band is veteran drummer Sam Inzerra. Sam has a death metal background which adds speed and power to the project.
"Each member of the band takes part in the writing process.
"While each member has established himself in legendary and underground bands, let it be known that this is no side project."
