Austrian Death Machine‘s crowdfunded album “Triple Brutal” will receive an April 01st release through Artery Recordings. The project was of course spearheaded by As I Lay Dying‘s Tim Lambesis, who is currently facing a charge of solicitation of another to commit murder. That charge stems from him allegedly attempted to hire an undercover detective posing as a hitman to murder his estranged wife.
Likely in light of the situation, royalties from the release will be going towards the World Vision Charity. Prior to his current legal situation, Lambesis managed to crowdfund $78,120 USD for the album and a then planned tour. Numerous guest appearances were also tracked for the effort including those from the likes of:
Bleeding Through guitarist Dave Nassie
Allegaeon‘s Ryan Gilsan
Impending Doom drummer Brandon Trahan
God Forbid guitarist Doc Coyle
The Faceless guitarist Wes Hauch
Carnifex vocalist Scott Lewis
Ex-Sworn Enemy guitarist Lorenzo “The Main Event” Antonucci
It is not known if they will all still be included on the final effort. Below you can hear a stream of the new track “I’ll Be Back” along with an official statement:
“Artery Recordings has teamed up with Ahhnold to release Austrian Death Machine’s new record “Triple Brutal.” The record will hit retail stores and digital outlets on April 1st 2014. Triple Brutal was previously crowd funded on Indiegogo and had massive support. All contributors will start receiving their packages on March 28th. Austrian Death Machines previous record Double Brutal topped the scales and sold over 60,000 copies. Royalties from Triple Brutal will be going to the World Vision Charity.
