Extreme metal bulldozer System Divide (featuring members of Aborted / Ex-Distorted) just entered Sound Division Studios in Hagen (Germany) to start the tracking for 2nd full-length album entitled "The Cult of Indifference."

11 brand new tracks are being recorded during the Spring/Summer of 2013. Due to scheduling conflicts, longtime System Divide drummer Mike Heller (who is now the full time drummer for Fear Factory), is being replaced by Ken Bedene of Aborted, upon which vocalist Sven comments:

"So far things are going great, the album has been in the works for nearly 2 years now, we have all been busy with our other bands and it feels good to finally record this piece of work. Alas Mike (Heller) had too many other commitments when he joined Fear Factory but Ken is laying down killer tracks and the material is lightyears beyond anything the band has done. If you think you know System Divide, think again! The material is far more intricate, extreme and progressive without losing the groove and melodic aspects. I am sure this will turn quite some heads."

Continues Sven: "As mentioned above longtime drummer Mike Heller (Fear Factory, Malignancy) was too busy with his commitments with Fear Factory to be able to tour and record with System Divide, he is our brother and as much as this saddens we completely understand and also have to move on from our side. We wish him the best and would like to welcome our brother Ken Bedene (Aborted, EX-Abigail Williams) to the fold, Ken Already replaced Mike on our Japanese tour earlier this year and did a killer job, we are very excited to hear him lay down his killer style on these tracks."

Ken Bedene also commented about joining the band: "I'm happy to have the opportunity to play with such a good band with good musicians and work hard to fill the shoes of one of my favorite drummers and good friends, Mike. I hope to bring as much intensity as Mike did, tracking these new songs has been quite a challenge and I am sure everybody will be quite surprised with the outcome!"

New album "The Cult Of Indifference" will feature 11 brand new songs of System Divide madness and the album will be mixed by Pete Rutcho (Revocation, The Ghost Inside, Bury Your Dead) and features artwork by Spawnfall. The album is set for a Fall/Winter 2013 release worldwide.
