In other Winds of Genocide news, the band recently underwent a line-up adjustment. The new Winds of Genocide skinsbeater is Matthew Henderson, and Linus Girdland Flink will now be reinstated as the second axe-man. The band issued the following statement:
"This is the new line-up that will be writing material for and recording the debut full-length album 'Usurping The Throne Of Disease.' Matthew is a great young versatile drummer (still only in his teens, he is currently 17 years old, nearly 18) and he also drums in a local Death Metal band called Plague Rider. He can switch from D-Beats, Swebeats and blast beats, which is all we need in a drummer!
"He has picked up most of the songs we have written so far VERY quickly and learned the current setlist with impressive ease. We are very happy to have him in the band and onboard for the full-length album. Linus, who played drums on our first two recordings and tracks for the upcoming split with Abigail (Japan), has now moved on to second guitar dues to him moving to London so we needed to find a drummer who could rehearse and work on new material regularly."
Winds of Genocide, which signed to Pulverised Records earlier this month, has now posted the track "Into the Darkness of Eternal Nuclear Winter" online for streaming, which can be heard below. The band also commented:
"This track from our new recording and the upcoming split CD with Abigail is now available for FREE download. Check it out if you haven't, feel free to download it and share it!"
Pulverised Records is pleased to announce the addition of U.K. based deathcrust extremos, Winds of Genocide. The label commented:
"Spawned in 2006, Winds of Genocide is poised to inflict apocalyptic domination with their offensive d-beat onslaught. A bastardized fusion of Cianide, Amebix, Unleashed and Bolt Thrower, Winds of Genocide are working on their as-yet-titled debut full-length album, which should see the light of day in Armageddon 2012."
Commented Winds of Genocide lung-torturess Kat Shevil of the signing: "We are extremely honored and excited to be signing and working with Pulverised Records for a full-length album and to be joining such a roster that includes such great bands as Bastard Priest, Morbus Chron, Iron Lamb, Impiety, Grave Desecrator, Tyrant, Crucifyre, In Aeturnum, Interment, Tribulation, Desultory, Seance etc. Pulverised Records is a great label run by dedicated people with a great and long history of quality releases to their name. We look forward to unleashing a powerful destructive debut album which will pulverize your ears. Expect nothing less than pure fucking aural armageddon!"
Added Pulverised Records label manager Roy Yeo: "We seemed to have a (dis)taste for scruffed-up and no-holds-barred extreme bands these days, so having WINDS OF GENOCIDE on our roster is definitely the next logical step. WINDS OF GENOCIDE has without a doubt convinced us with their previously released The Arrival Of Apokalyptic Armageddon EP release, and we are very sure that the upcoming full-length effort will prove that WINDS OF GENOCIDE is going to further terrorize everything in sight (and sound, of course). D-beat krusaders, you have been forewarned!"
