U.D.O.: 'Mastercutor' Bonus Tracks Detailed; 'The Wrong Side Of Midnight' Video Available

U.D.O., the band led by former ACCEPT frontman Udo Dirkschneider, will release its new album, "Mastercutor", on May 18 via AFM Records. Several extra songs were recorded for the CD, with different territories getting their own bonus cuts. The Japanese edition of the CD will come with the track "Man a King Ruler", the Russian album will include "Platchet Soldat", and both will feature the song "Streets of Sin". The European limited-edition version of "Mastercutor" will include the songs "Borderline" and "Screaming Eagles".

U.D.O.'s video for its new single, "The Wrong Side of Midnight", has been posted at YouTube. According to a press release, the clip was filmed in a closed tunnel section near Stuttgart which was built during the second world war. Dirkschneider was reportedly attacked by a flock of bats during the shoot. The video's storyline: A man that was kept imprisoned and used for horrible experiments for several decades mutates into a creepy monster before escaping and subjecting the general population to some of the same atrocities that he underwent during his confinement.

U.D.O. supported LORDI on September 28, 2006 at the Live Music Hall in Cologne. Dirkschneider makes an appearance on the song "They Only Come Out At Night" on LORDI's latest album, "The Arockalypse".

U.D.O.'s last album, "Mission No. X", was issued in September 2005 via AFM Records. The follow-up to 2004's "Thunderball" marked the recording debut with the group of new drummer Francesco Jovino. Jovino joined the band in 2005 as the permanent replacement for Lorenzo Milani, who left the group for "personal reasons."
