About two years ago now, word spread of a new metal supergroup forming featuring Killswtich Engage's guitarist Adam D., Cannibal Corpse vocalist, George "Corpsegrinder" Fisher and Black Dahlia Murder drummmer Shannon Lucas. We confirmed the news a year later, but things have been ho-hum on the supergroup front, until now.
In the new issue of Decibel Magazine, Adam D. is profile and author J. Bennett makes sure to ask about the sideproject:
"It was supposed to be a big hush-hush, but I think people are starting to catch wind of it," Adam said.
"When [Killswitch] toured with Cannibal Corpse and Black Dahlia Murder on the Mayhem [Festival], I was just hanging out with George one night, and I was like, 'Dude, if I wrote you a bunch of songs to sing over, would you do it?' And he was like, 'Fuck yeah, man!' So, I've written about eight songs. I've played them for George and Shannon, and they're both down. So, we're just looking for a time get into the studio."
Adam D. also assures us these aren't just songs he had lying around:
"They were written specifically for [Corpsegrinder]. He's one of my favorite singers of all time, and I thought there wouldn't be any harm in at least asking him. Once he said yes, it was like, 'Alright — let's go!'"
Unfortunately, there is no timetable that is talked about and with Killswitch just gearing up their promo machine for their new album, Disarm The Discent it might be quite a while until these three powerhouses have time to get in the studio. There is music though, and a willingness to do it. I spoke with Corpsegrinder last year when he stopped into SiriusXM studios and he seemed very excited about the project, so this will see the light of day…eventually!
