Winds Of Genocide Announces New Album, Lineup Changes

U.K. based deathcrust metallers Winds of Genocide have announced the title of their upcoming full-length album as "Usurping The Throne Of Disease."

Winds of Genocide has tapped world-renowned gruesome graphic illustrator Mark Riddick (Arsis, Slayer, Morbid Angel, The Black Dahlia Murder, Suffocation, Cephalic Carnage, etc) to oversee the entire artwork and layout duties. The initial rough sketches for "Usurping The Throne Of Disease" can be found at the Mark Riddick Official Facebook page here.

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."
