Insidious Disease Post 'Shadowcast' Artwork, Video Trailer
July 5, 2010
Insidious Disease, the 'Super Group' consisting of Dimmu Borgir's main songwriter Silenoz, bassist Shane Embury (Napalm Death), guitarist Jardar (Old Mans Child), drummer Tony Laureano (Angelcorpse, Nile) and vocalist Marc Grewe (from German death metal legends Morgoth) will release its debut album 'Shadowcast' via Century Media Records on July 12th in Europe and July 27th in North America.

Insidious Disease
is proud to unveil a brand new artwork trailer for 'Shadowcast' offering a glimpse at the morbid visuals accompanying the release. Check it out below.
To watch the band's current video clip "Rituals Of Bloodshed" and check out further tracks, head over now to http://www.myspace.com/insidiousdisease

Silenoz
further explains the concept of 'Shadowcast', which has way more to offer than just typical death metal gore galore: "The basic idea behind 'Shadowcast' lyrically is an attempt to describe the 'misfits' in this world: the misunderstood, mentally defect and depraved individuals that walk among us - rapists, serial killers, pedophiles, necrophiles and drug addicts, etc. It could be your neighbor, you just never know, it could be YOU!

"Denial and self-denial are taboos that seldom are touched upon unless it's behind closed doors at the shrink's office. Even so, no matter how disturbing the subject might be, we hardly get to the bottom of it. Each text tries to approach the many outcast stereotypes we face in today's modern society, and how most of them once caught get neglected and pushed away instead of being offered proper assistance, support and help through various institutions according to their 'needs'. Let's face it, we humans equal shit.

"In some countries where death penalties apply the convicts also have to wait years before being executed, which is inhumane as things need to be dealt with as soon as possible. We humans are better at pushing things away and destroying than facing a problem and try to rehabilitate. Most people reading the lyrics and seeing the booklet photos will perhaps immediately assume that it's all about glorifying violence and hatred, but if you read between the lines it's actually kind of the opposite, portraying this very issue.

"So, the album title 'Shadowcast' has somewhat of a double meaning; all of these 'actors and actresses' star in the shadowcast. They are the true stars of the underground, our very own dark backyard. The backyard we humans hate dealing with because it means interacting with other people and as they mingle among us daily they continue to 'cast their shadows' at us."

Insidious Disease
also faced serious problems during the manufacturing process as pressing plants refused to produce the original design of the booklet due to its violent content as well as print the equally controversial lyrics, Silenoz states: "It's quite fascinating that in the year of 2010 album artwork can be so scary that manufacturing plants don't even dare to print it. I always thought reality still was more frightening compared to art in that sense, but I guess I was wrong! Controversy is still to be reckoned with in the world of metal and if we're being censored for being realistic and touch upon human flaws through our lyrics and art - then so be it."

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1982
HOME TOWN: Birmingham, England
MEMBERS:
Barney Greenway (vocals)
Shane Embury (bass)
Mitch Harris (guitar)
Danny Herrera (drums)

17 years after the release of their now legendary debut record, Scum, British extreme metal legends NAPALM DEATH deliver another covers collection that pays homage to hardcore, death and thrash metal's progenitors. Leaders Not Followers Part 2 continues where 1999's 5-track Leaders Not Followers EP left off, serving up 19 full-bodied tracks. Opening with Cryptic Slaughter's "Lowlife" the stakes rise and the band tears through Devastation's "Devastation," and whips into Hellhammer's "Messiah," a version that possibly outshines the original. In a ferocious fit the band plows through classic songs from Wehrmacht, Discharge, Master, Kreator, Die Kruezen, Sepultura and Hirax. As a bonus to long-time fans, and at the urging of long-time friend Shane Embury, the band's first bass player, Jim Whiteley, performs here on Discharge's "War's No Fairytale" and Anti Cimex's "Game Of The Arseholes."

NAPALM DEATH have been at the forefront of the death metal movement since they were established in Birmingham, England circa 1982. By incorporating hardcore and thrash into metal riffs they created what is now considered grindcore and to this day have remained a sonically defiant task force. With distribution help from then start-up label Earache, and a countrywide introduction from BBC Radio DJ John Peel their dissident music was heard, available, and embraced by a nation and eventually the world. Touring worldwide, from Japan to South Africa, the U.S. to the former Soviet Union NAPALM DEATH have remained a constant influence in heavy metal's musical direction by releasing belligerent and aggressive albums and tirelessly bringing its music to their fans.
