Bent Sea (Megadeth) Enlist Midnight’s Athenar For New Track “Grind To Halt”


Bent Sea, the side project of Megadeth drummer Dirk Verbeuren, recently dropped a new single titled “Grind To A Halt“. Midnight mastermind Athenar provides guest vocals on this new track, with Verbeuren handling the other instrumental duties.

The song is the first in a planned series, as Verbeuren commented to Decibel:

“‘Grind To A Halt‘ is the first in a series of songs I dubbed Instagrind. Instagrind grew from a simple idea: How about releasing some quarantine grind on Instagram? So, I rang the bell of the beast, and Athenar answered. 63 seconds later, we had ‘Grind To A Halt. Now I’m gonna dust off my little black book and see who else is up to grind!”

Given this latest song, it would seem that the outfit has transitioned to a solo project for Verbeuren. The band’s early incarnation saw him joined by Napalm Death‘s Shane Embury and Aborted‘s Sven de Caluwé.
