BONDED, the new Thrash Metal group by former Sodom members Bernd “Bernemann” Kost (Guitars) and Markus “Makka” Freiwald (Drums) recently announced the release of their debut album “Rest In Violence” for January 17th, 2020 via Century Media Records.
BONDED, who also feature second guitarist Chris Tsitsis (ex-Suicidal Angels), bassist Marc Hauschild and vocalist Ingo Bajonczak (Assassin) in their line-up ranks, have created nothing short of a
highly versatile and hard-hitting Thrash Metal debut together with producer Cornelius Rambadt (Sodom, Disbelief, Onkel Tom) at the Rambado Recording Studio in Essen, Germany.
The second single off “Rest In Violence” is being unveiled today with the track “Suit Murderer”. The video clip directed by Nico Schiesewitz / Vizo Films.
BONDED commented as follows: "We proudly present you our new single "Suit Murderer". This brutal old-school Thrash-attack is a straight and explicit lyrical statement to confront politicians, big business-bankers (a.k.a. "the men in power") with their own ruthless and inhuman ways! So better fasten your seatbelts, get ready to fight for your rights and resist 'em all! We hope you enjoy the video-clip, which was again produced by Nico Schiesewitz / VIZO-Films. Stay bonded for more news and tunes soon...".
“Rest In Violence” also showcases Overkill’s Bobby “Blitz” Ellsworth as guest vocalist as well as former Kreator bass-player Christian “Speesy” Giesler on the album’s title track and the release comes with artwork by Björn Gooßes / Killustrations (Aborted, The Crown, Carnal Forge), which can be seen above.
