Man Must Die To Release New Album

The new album of Scottish death/grind powerhouse Man Must Die will be entitled "Peace Was Never An Option." the album will be released on October 28th in Europe and a day later in North America and contains a guest appearance by Max Cavalera. The band comments:

"This album is by far the angriest yet most diverse one we have done yet, its the next level for Man Must Die, we couldn't be happier with how its turned out, its brutal beyond the word and yet more melodic and memorable than ever. With 'Peace was Never An Option' we really focused on the song writing which is really important in MMD's sound, seems to be bypassed a lot in modern music. All the classic metal is all about the songs, this is what influences us, this is what we do."

The Scottish band is known for having rigorous titles that express the essence of the releases and the underlying attitude in short. Following “...Start Killing” (2004) and the two Relapse albums “The Human Condition” (2007) and “No Tolerance For Imperfection,” Man Must Die's fourth effort will be its Lifeforce debut. More...

Man Must Die Signs With Lifeforce

Lifeforce Records has checked in with the following announcement about inking a deal with Man Must Die:

"We are very proud to announce the signing of Scottish extreme metal maniacs Man Must Die for a world wide release (outside the UK) of their next album in late October via Lifeforce Records. The band is currently at Valvetone studios putting the final touches on the new effort.

"Man Must Die are an extreme metal band hailing from Glasgow, Scotland. Formed in 2002 and originally born of the founding members' desire to push their music to new levels of intensity and brutality, the band's dedication to their craft has since manifested itself in a rich touring history, sharing stages with such acts as Exodus, Machine Head and Decapitated. As well as this, they have released three full-length studio albums. These are 2004's '...Start Killing,' released on Retribute Records, followed by 'The Human Condition' (2007) and the highly acclaimed 'No Tolerance for Imperfection' (2009), both on Relapse Records.

"Their music manages to incorporate the heaviest elements of extreme metal whilst retaining an attuned sense of melody, confidently shifting from epic, uplifting passages to pure sickness. Augmented by a keen compositional flair and furious, socially aware vocals, Man Must Die are a highly focused musical force.

"Now in 2013, having formed a new alliance with Lifeforce Records, Man Must Die find themselves on the verge of unleashing their greatly anticipated fourth full-length, which promises to forge new sonic ground for the band whilst remaining every bit as destructive and darkly satisfying as their devotees have come to expect."

No Tolerance For Imperfection was recorded with painful precision and effort, we all sweated blood for this CD and cant wait to get this beast out. Every song has its own story and feel, lyrical concepts are as powerful as the music and this album is the first to feature new drummer Matt Holland, who has added some serious spice to the MMD sound. We are super psyched about getting it out and hitting the road to back it up, and cant wait for you all to hear it. Let the blasts commence..."
