Generation Kill, the band fronted by former Exodus vocalist Rob Dukes, is back with a brand new album MKUltra and a new single "Evil Eye" featuring ex-Megadeth guitarist Chris Poland. The band is now streaming the single alongside a creepy music video directed by Wacy Jahn and inspired by Edgar Allan Poe's classic The Tell-Tale Heart. As for the music, it's Generation Kill doing what they do best – bringing some seriously groovy thrash to the table.
“In ’85, I dropped the needle onto an album called Killing is my Business… and Business is Good and heard a guitar tone I’d never heard before. Ever since, Chris Poland has been one of my favorite guitarists of all time. To collaborate with him on this song is one of the greatest honors in my musical career. The solos he did on this song are mind-blowing. The unique style and tone is so unmistakably Chris.
"The song itself was inspired by a short story from Edgar Allan Poe The Tell-Tale Heart written in the 1800’s. Our drummer Rob Youells connected us with the filmmaker Wacy Jahn, who he had worked with on a previous project, and Wacy used our vision to create nothing short of a horror masterpiece. We couldn’t be prouder of this one."
MKUltra features guest appearances from Gary Holt (Slayer, Exodus), Chris Poland (ex-Megadeth), John Joseph (Cromags, Bloodclot), and GRAMMY Award-winning pianist Ronnie King. MKUltra is available here and you can catch Generation Kill on tour at one of the dates below.
