Single Bullet Theory On Route 666

Philadelphia's Single Bullet Theory have completed their new CD entitled "Route 666." The CD is over 45 minutes of nonstop, in your face sonic brutality mixed with intelligent melody and memorable hooks. The disc was partially tracked and totally mixed by none other then James Murphy (Testament, Death, Disincarnate) at a secluded studio in Northern New Jersey. "It was an absolute honor to work with someone as talented as James", states Guitarist / Vocalist Matt Difabio. "The guy has been influencing me as a player since the time I picked up the guitar and to know that he was a crucial part of our new CD is incredible."

The record balances somewhere with a stylistic mix of Nevermore meets Soilwork. Deep textured guitar work mixed in with some harshly aggressive vocals make the CD¹s harderedge about as abrasive as 10 grit sandpaper, while songs like "Abduction" showcase clean, whispered versus deafly weaving - a sonic tapestry of multiple sound scapes.

"These guy's music struck a chord in me right off the bat, and I was very happy to be able to mix their album. States Murphy..." but my recent work with SBT almost didn't happen... I had some problems refilling my medicine in New York and it looked like I would have to return to Florida before I would have a chance to do the mix. Luckily, at the last minute I was able to stay but I had lost a lot of time and had to really knuckle down to get the job done. Matt and the other guys in SBT showed a lot of faith in me, only the second band to do so since my recovery from a life threatening illness and surgery, when they could have gone to a bigger studio. I am so happy to know that they are so pleased with the results I got for them, as I hope all
who buy the CD will be as well."

The record will be in stores April 22, 2003 on Crash Music. A short tour will commence shortly thereafter.
