New full-length to hit stores this March on Lifeforce Records
GERMANY – Germany’s melodic heavy metal outfit, Deadlock, has revealed the track list and cover art for the forthcoming full-length, Bizarro World. The veteran metal act’s fifth studio album, and fourth Lifeforce Records release, will hit stores on March 15th.
The track list for Bizarro World is…
1. Virus Jones
2. State Of Decay
3. Falling Skywards
5. You Left Me Dead
6. Brutal Romance
10. Bizarro World
11. Paranoia Extravaganza
Bizarro World was produced by Deadlock guitarist, Sebastian Reichl, at Slaughter’s Palace studios this fall.
The limited edition (digipak) and digital version of the album will contain two remixes as bonus tracks.
On Bizarro World, Deadlock has designed an interpretation of a world built up on extremes and antitheses. The album is based on the concept of “Bizarro”, which originated in DC Comics in the early 1960s, and represents a weirdly mutilated version of anything. However, contrary to the concept of a world stigmatizing perfection, sonically, Bizarro World strives for the opposite.
Deadlock’s sound can be described as a combination of opposed elements, such as sharp guitar-assaults, pop and dance quotations, orchestral profundity, gruffly growls, and beautiful clean vocals. With Bizarro World, the band seeks to improve on what they already did so well in the past, while and offering a wider, self-assured view on symphonic and brutal metal, based on a progressive approach.
Over their previous Lifeforce offerings, Earth.Revolt (2005), Wolves (2007) and Manifesto (2008), Deadlock has accentuated the signature of their metal sound, which hovers somewhere in between beauty and darkness, with increasing relevance. The band has toured in support of such accredited acts as Lacuna Coil, All That Remains, Sonic Syndicate, Dark Tranquillity, Caliban, and Heaven Shall Burn within the past two years.
Stay tuned for more information on Deadlock and Bizarro World.
