As dawn breaks, the first rays of the sun falling upon the corpse strew battlefield, all is silent. A low mist
drifts across the cold ground, the torn and bloodied earth, the twisted, discarded metal. It’s a moment of
tranquillity frozen in time, an inhaled breath held against the coming of the day…
…and then the silence is shattered with an incredible, undying roar and a steel clad armoured division
erupts from the mist. Hell is unleashed once more and broken bodies are ground into the mud beneath
steel tracks. Bodyfarm have returned to the field of battle, armed to the teeth! If you thought the beast
had been silenced forever – think again!
Bodyfarm first unfurled their standard in 2009, releasing their self titled debut EP in 2010 – a bitter
distillation of the essence of death metal. Three monstrous albums followed; Malevolence, The Coming
Scourge and Battle Breed, all released through Cyclone Empire to a resounding chorus of critical acclaim.
The band toured throughout Europe with Death To All and brought the hammer down on festivals such
as Party San, Dynamo Metal Fest, Summer Breeze, Eindhoven Metal Meeting, Carpathian Alliance,
Protzen and Turock Open Air, leaving carnage in their wake.
A brief salvo was fired in the summer of 2018 as Vic Records re-released that first, renowned EP, under
the name Into Battle, with new artwork, but there was no sign of a fresh assault. However, behind the
obscuring curtain of gun smoke, frantic activity was taking place within the trenches.
Recorded in their own home studio with long time engineer and former bass player, Harry van Breda,
Bodyfarm have finished work on their fourth album, imperiously entitled Dreadlord! The product of eight
long months of blood and sweat, this new collection of high powered weapons brings together the
thundering, implacable attack of Asphyx, the artillery barrage threaded through with winding, captivating
melodies of Unanimated and Bodyfarm’s own unique elixir – a thick, black blood siphoned directly from
the very heart of the death metal beast. Injected with unprecedented power by the mixing and
mastering skills of Dan Swanö (Asphyx, Bloodbath, Hail Of Bullets etc) in his Unisound studio and adorned
with the magnificent art of genre legend Dan Seagrave (Pestilence, Dismember, Suffocation etc).
Dreadlord represents the ultimate expression of Bodyfarm’s battle lust. No one will walk away from this decimating death metal onslaught unscathed.
This is victory or death!
