Bodyfarm Unveils New Album “Battle Breed”

Dutch old school death metal band Bodyfram will release third album, “Battle Breed,” on November 6, 2015 via Cyclone Empire Records.

The follow-up to 2013’s “The Coming Scourge” was mixed & produced by Ronnie Björnström from Enhanced Audio Productions. The cover artwork for “Battle Breed|” was designed by Juanjo Castellano and the track listing is as follow:

1. Hell March (Intro)
2. The Dark Age (featuring Martin Van Drunen)
3. Saxon Victory
4. Dawn Of Defeat
5. The Last Crusade
6. Prince Of Wallachia
7. Storming Revolution
8. Firing Squad
9. Wolfpack
10. Death By Fire
11. Slaves Of War (Bonus track)

The intro “Hell March” was orchestrated by Clemens Wijers (Carach Angren). The album’s opening track “The Dark Age” also features guest vocals by death metal vocalist Martin Van Drunen (Asphyx, Hail of Bullet).

Commented artwork designer Juanjo Castellano: “The inspiration for the cover-artwork of ‘Battle Breed’ came from true old school death metal like Bolt Thrower, Hail Of Bullets and others. War movies also influenced me, as did Bodyfarm’s killer sound of course! To work with Bodyfarm was intense as usual. They are truly committed to the quality of their art so we talked and discussed a lot. But finally, all turned out great!”

Bodyfram guitarist and frontman Thomas Wouters adds: “We have recorded our most versatile and aggressive album so far. Every song is really different and suits the lyrical theme going with the song. From brutality to melancholy, it’s all there. The mix is very honest. No triggers or samples were used and the instruments are just as we played it: practically no editing! Ronnie Björnström did a great job recording the drums and mixing the album, and Martin van Drunen added the extra spice to The Dark Age!”
