CADAVERIC POISON, an old school death/thrash metal project featuring members of MASTER (Paul Speckmann) and WITCHBURNER (Simon Seegel and Felix Darnieder), have signed with Metal on Metal Records for the release of their self-titled debut album, scheduled for April 29th. The band had one EP out on Dying Victims Productions in 2014, from which the title song, “Fight for Evil”, is up on the band’s YouTube channel or here:
Commented Jowita Kaminska-Peruzzi, Metal on Metal Records CEO:
“We are proud to announce the co-operation with CADAVERIC POISON, an old school death/thrash metal project. Even though as a band they’re a newcomer (formed in 2014), the three musicians involved in it are far from being new to the scene. Guitarist (and now also bassist) Simon Seegel has been in the German thrash institution WITCHBURNER for 22 years now, drummer Felix Darnieder has been his band mate in WITCHBURNER since 2002, and finally, the vocalist, Paul Speckmann, living in Czech Republic since the end of ’90s, doesn’t really need much introduction – he’s a true veteran of the death metal scene, known mostly for his bands MASTER, ABOMINATION and DEATH STRIKE, but he has also been in several other acts, including Czech death metal pioneers KRABATHOR.
When we heard CADAVERIC POISON’s “Fight for Evil” EP, and Seegel asked us if we’d be interested in releasing their album, we didn’t have to think twice. Their self-titled debut is a true old school death metal manifesto – it will take you back to the time when the genre was just emerging and often had some thrash metal elements.
I’ve personally had a good working relationship Seegel for about 10 years as the artist who painted the last four WITCHBURNER covers, and being also a big fan of MASTER, ABOMINATION and DEATH STRIKE, I’m truly happy and honoured to be working with CADAVERIC POISON.”
