Red Method – the band who’ve risen from the ashes of London metallers Meta-stasis and The Defiled – have announced that their debut will be released on February 28, 2020.
Entitled For The Sick, the album was produced and recorded by Scott Atkins (Cradle Of Filth, Amon Amarth, Monuments, Sylosis) at GrindstoneStudios.
Singer Jeremy Gomez, former vocalist with Meta-stasis and Ted Maul, said: “For the Sick is my heart on a plate, I have never been so honest lyrically or musically in my life. Little did I know at the time but all the negativity and loss I endured over the past few years have all led to this moment, this band and this album.
“It covers very difficult subjects like the suicide of my friend in Adriel, the spiral in to Alzheimer’s of my grandparents in The Absent, mental health issues and even a problematic relationship with a boss in My Psychosis, it’s all there… this album has really been a labour of love.”
Keyboard player Alex Avdis, known for his incendiary live performances with The Defiled, commented: “I don’t want to get too heavy but this band probably saved my life. I was kind of lost at the time, going nowhere fast… when Jeremy gave me the call and asked me if I wanted to join him on this journey, I grabbed on tight!
“I owe so much to this album, people need to hear it.”
Scott Atkins added: “Red Method have it all. Hard riffs, killer drums, violent verses and catchy as hell choruses.
“It’s rock radio friendly but will appeal to fans of brutal music at the same time. They have such a wide appeal I can see these guys crossing all the boundaries and becoming a household name in the not too distant future.”
