The Norway-based metal band MELTDOWN will release “Deadringer”, their second album, on October 25th 2019 on Rambo Music/Fifth Island Music AB/Sony Entertainment AB.
The album – which features cover artwork by Mike D’Antonio (bass player in Killswitch Engage), as seen above – has been mixed and mastered by the legendary Fredrik Nordström at Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden (not only has Nordström worked with, but also formed and shaped the genres and early sound of bands like At The Gates, In Flames, Hammerfall, Sabaton, Arch Enemy, Dimmu Borgir, Architects and many, many more).
Says guitarist and founding member Jørgen C. Hansen, “This album combines what this band is all about: tons of heavy riffs, hard-hitting and bone-crushing metal, and melodies on top of it. The songs are really strong and represents the great chemistry of our line-up. We wanted the best person to capture our sound in the mix and master, and we got it with Fredrik Nordström. He did an excellent job. We also wanted great artwork for the cover and other band-related stuff. We hired Mike D’Antonio in Killswitch Engage because he obviously understands our music and what we want, being a very gifted artist.”
The single “Walls Down” from the album will be released digitally on September 27th 2019.
Numerous live performances have firmly established the band as a solid live act.
