FRANKENSHRED, the Phoenix, Arizona-based metal/shred band, has just released its debut album, "Cauldron of Evil", via Italy's Metal on Metal Records. According to a press release, the CD contains "16 tracks of blazing old-school style metal incorporating elements of thrash, speed and hard rock with plenty of guitar shredding! This [album] also features the great drumming skills of Greg Hall [SACRED REICH] who throws down on all 16 tracks."

The "Cauldron of Evil" cover was created by renowned artist Jowita Kaminska who also worked on EXODUS's 2004 release "Tempo of the Damned".

Originally formed in late 1996, FRANKENSHRED started out as an instrumental project.
