Arizona’s Go Ahead And Die are proud to release their debut self-titled album via Nuclear Blast Records. In celebration of the release, the band offers fans a music video for ‘G.A.A.D.’ which features a news broadcast from Ice T.
Born from the minds of creative writer and musician Igor Amadeus Cavalera of Healing Magic and extreme metal icon Max Cavalera, Go Ahead And Die‘s tempos are wild, filled with a palpable contempt for modern social ills, packed with monstrous, captivating riffs. They make angry, spiteful, spirited extreme music for increasingly extreme times.
The self-titled debut sees Max and Igor splitting guitar and vocal duties, with madman style drumming from Zach Coleman of blistering band Black Curse and critically-acclaimed Khemmis. G.A.A.D. sound like a relic from the glory days of thrash, proto-death metal, and filthy rotten punk.
The vocals weren’t tracked over and over in the pursuit of some kind of “perfect” takes, and Coleman didn’t play to a click-track. The heart and soul of G.A.A.D. is all about just going for it, the traditional way. Engineer Charles Elliot captured the sessions with the help of Platinum Underground Studio owner John Aquilino. The album was mixed by Arthur Rizk, whose credits include Power Trip, Cro-Mags, and Cavalera Conspiracy The artwork for the album was created by Stewart Easton while the circle logo was created by Jeff Walker (Carcass).
