Lethal Reunite, Prepare To Record New Album

LETHAL, the legendary power/progressive metal band that released the classic "Programmed" album, as well as the critically acclaimed "Your Favorite God" EP and "Poison Seed" releases, have broken 10 years of silence and reformed. LETHAL have reunited with the "Your Favorite God/Poison Seed" lineup of Tom Mallicoat (vocals), Dave McElfresh (guitars), Eric Cook (guitars), Jerry Hartmann (drums), and Glen Cook (bass).

LETHAL is currently rehearsing for upcoming live dates, as well as writing material for their new album, to be released in early 2007 (with a full tour to follow).

The Kentucky-based LETHAL was founded by Tom Mallicoat and the Cook brothers, Eric and Glen. In 1990, after the arrival of drummer Jerry Hartmann, Metal Blade Records released their debut album, "Programmed", which was instantly proclaimed a progressive/power metal classic the world over.

In 1994, LETHAL independently released "Your Favorite God", a five-song EP (featuring new guitarist David McElfresh) which immediately sold out. "Your Favorite God" showed LETHAL going in a heavier direction, with such outstanding songs as "Waiting on the Kill" and "Hard to Breathe".

LETHAL's last release, the album "Poison Seed" (1995), set new standards for progressive metal bands with its sheer musical brilliance, which featured "Down", "Walking Wounded", and the title track.
