‘Battle Breed’ Cover Artwork, Track Listing Revealed 2015/08/17

Dutch old school death metallers BODYFARM will release their third album, ‘Battle Breed’, on November 6th 2015 via Cyclone Empire Records. The follow-up to 2013's ‘The Coming Scourge’ was mixed & produced by Ronnie Björnström from Enhanced Audio Productions(AEON, CENTINEX, SORCERER,..). The cover artwork for ‘Battle Breed’ was designed by Juanjo Castellano (VOMITORY, AVULSED, UNLEASHED,..) and can be seen below.

The ‘Battle Breed’ track list is as follows:
1. Hell March (Intro)
2. The Dark Age (featuring Martin Van Drunen)
3. Saxon Victory
4. Dawn Of Defeat
5. The Last Crusade
6. Prince Of Wallachia
7. Storming Revolution
8. Firing Squad
9. Wolfpack
10. Death By Fire
11. Slaves Of War (Bonus track)
The intro ‘Hell March’ was orchestrated by Clemens Wijers (CARACH ANGREN). The album’s opening track ‘The Dark Age’ features guest vocals by the legendary death metal  vocalist Martin Van Drunen (ASPHYX, HAIL OF BULLETS).
Commented artwork designer Juanjo Castellano: “The inspiration for the cover-artwork of ‘Battle Breed’ came from true old school death metal like Bolt Thrower, Hail Of Bullets and others. War movies also influenced me, as did Bodyfarm’s killer sound of course! To work with Bodyfarm was intense as usual. They are truly committed to the quality of their art so we talked and discussed a lot. But finally, all turned out great!”

Commented BODYFARM guitarist and frontman Thomas Wouters: "We have recorded our most versatile and aggressive album so far. Every song is really different and suits the lyrical theme going with the song. From brutality to melancholy, it’s all there. The mix is very honest. No triggers or samples were used and the instruments are just as we played it: practically no editing! Ronnie Björnström did a great job recording the drums and mixing the album, and Martin van Drunen added the extra spice to The Dark Age!"

Album title announced! 2015/08/05

BODYFARM 2015 is:
Quint Meerbeek - drums
Thomas Wouters - guitars/vocals
Alex Seegers - bass
Bram Hilhorst - guitars

'The Coming Scourge' was originally released on September 20th 2013 through Cyclone Empire and later re-released via Metal Blade Records in the United States. The album received amazing reviews from music critics worldwide. 'The Coming Scourge' was recorded from February until May 2013 in Oerknal Studios, and was mixed and mastered by Ronnie Björnström (THE 11TH HOUR, AEON, THE GROTESQUERY, PAGANIZER ) from Enhanced Audio Productions. The artwork was created by renowned underground artist Juanjo Castellano (VOMITORY, REVEL IN FLESH, etc.).

BRUTALISM (NL) - 4 / 5
"Ready to feel mud in your teeth? Go for it lads!"

"'The Coming Scourge” clearly brings the fuckin’ quake man, hands down!"

HELL IS OPEN (D) - 9,5 / 10
"Direkt in die Kauleiste! Das Album kratzt verdächtig an der Höchstnote!"

CROSSFIRE (D) - 8,5 / 10
"Erfrischender Death Metal aus den Niederlanden! Empfehlenswert!"

METALNEWS (D) - 5 / 7
"Stampfende Midtempo-Songs beherrschen die vier Niederländer gleichermaßen wie rasende und brachiale. Ruhig weiter so, die Fahrrichtung des Panzers ist richtig!"

METALIAN (F) - 4 / 6
"A good mixture of different Death styles!"

"Bodyfarm don't mess around and get right to the point with their riffing, keeping each arrangement bare bones and focused! Another album to pick up if you love European death metal!""

"Bands like Bodyfarm give the old genre new impetus! Clenched fists in the air!"

"BODYFARM sind auf einem sehr guten Weg!"

THE PIT (D) - 8 / 10
"Bodyfarm kommen mit ihrem Zweitling reifer und aufgeräumter, aber auf vielfältige Art und Weise auch heftiger und vor allem überzeugender ums Eck!"

MEGA METAL (D) - 8 / 10
"Auch dieses Mal zieht der Vierer alle Register seines tief im Herzen traditionell veranlagten Könnens!"

ASHLADAN (B) - 85 / 100
"An excellent album that blows down from the first second!"

METAL TEMPLE (GR) - 7 / 10
"A worthy release for you Metalheads out there!"

"If you love Bolt Thrower and early Entombed you will find the perfect mix in BODYFARM!"

AARDSCHOK (NL) - 82 / 100
"BODYFARM have grown! The songs are more layered and contain more variety, both in tempo, melody and style!"

ROCK TRIBUNE (B) - 80 / 100
"Just like their debut album, Bodyfarm has made a metal classic once again! Strong band, strong album!"

ROCK HARD (D) - 7,5 / 10
"Obwohl auch eine straight bollernde, im Opener fast punkige Entombed-Note erkennbar ist, erkennt man BODYFARM am Riffing als Holländer! Die Mucke macht Spaß!"

ZEPHYRS ODEM (D) - 10 / 10 !!!
"Ein fantastisches Meisterwerk! Unbedingte Kaufempfehlung!"

"Atemberaubende und immens vielseitige Death-Metal-Kost!"

"BODYFARM is one of the Netherlands' top players in this genre!"

METAL FORCES (UK) - 7 / 10
"For flesh-ripping, eye-gouging, bone-crunching old school death metal dynamics this is a very good record that will please fans of fast as well as slower extreme metal!"

POWERMETAL.DE (D) - 8 / 10
"Hail to Death Metal! Ein besseres Fazit fällt mir hierzu nicht ein, denn auf "The Coming Scourge" haben BODYFARM 10 kompromiss- und schnörkellose Old School-Tracks ohne Experimente verewigt."

MY REVELATIONS (D) - 13 / 15
"BODYFARM decken mit "The Coming Scourge" so ziemlich alles ab, was im Death Metal eine Rolle spielt und übertrumpfen dabei scheinbar spielend viele alteingesessene Kollegen. Unbedingt kaufen!"


MATHIEU WESTERVELD, who has handled the bass since the beginning has decided to leave the band after 3 years of active duty because of personal reasons. Mathieu leaves as a good friend, and we thank him f...or the great times!
It’s time to welcome HARRY VAN BREDA as the band’s new bass player. Harry, an experienced bass player, is responsible for recording every BODYFARM release until now, and is known for his vocal duties in I CHAOS. Harry has allways been a good friend and we’re looking forward to get back on the road in this new formation!
Quint Meerbeek – Drums
Thomas Wouters – Guitars/vocals

Music video for UNBROKEN unleashed! 2013/09/02

"Unbroken", the new video from Dutch death metallers BODYFARM, can be seen below. The "Unbroken" video was shot in the woods of Amersfoort near a Sovjet field of honor and the bandshots were filmed in Nick Rozenberg’s studio.
" the video was shot in the woods of Amersfoort near a Sovjet field of honor. The battles in the second world war were fierce in this area. Since "Unbroken" is about perseverance and bravery on the battlefield, we thought this was a suitable place to do the shots of the wounded soldier."

Bodyfarm confirmed for EMM 2013 2013/08/28
