To sum up
Sudden Deaths music in one word, INDESTRUCTIBLE! The music is metal; its loud, but the definition between the band members
and their influences is a perfect example of synchronism. The chemistry of these five members yeilds their technically complex
yet dense, thrash metal sound.
Beginning in their small hometown of Angola, IN, the original four members, Beau, Bill,
Corey, and Joe, expanded into Ohio, Illinios, Michigan, and Iowa. After building an outstanding fan base in these areas throughout
the Midwest, they decided to venture to other areas of the country, such as Texas, and finally Florida, where their newest
member, Jon, joined the band. Here, finally, was a group whose music and visuals came together in perfect metal harmony.
Sudden Death has signed a two album deal with Locomotive Records,
a well known indie lable. The first album, Unpure Burial, will be released world-wide by Locomotive in March of 2006. The
release will be followed by a world-wide tour. Unpure Burial marks Sudden Death's progression into modern metal. Right from
the start, the guitars are hard-driven and crunchy. The drums and bass are full force from beginning to end. And, hard core
vocals growl out the aggressive lyrics.
"This is pain by way of a good crack upside the skull
with a sonic anvil", Taxi A&R Listener.
"We like Sudden Death a lot and believe in the high potential of this good,
organized band. The sound of Sudden Death is the perfect combination of real metal in 2005 and for the next years. The special
mixture of the roots of thrash and speed metal in combination with the energetic elements shows their own identity", Holger
Koch, Locomotive Records A&R.
