Or peace sells and Dave’s buying
With the core of the band playing together for well over a decade, Iowa’s Green Death have become a staple in the Midwest Metal scene, earning their stripes playing alongside artists likeSlipknot, Suicidal Tendencies, Sevendust, Trivium, Napalm Death, Battlecross, John 5, Soulfly, Devildriver, Havok, Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals, Sebastian Bach, Doyle, Soulfly, Black Dahlia Murder, Dying Fetus, Carcass, and more, and releasing 2 critically acclaimed LPs,The Deathening, and Manufacturing Evil.
Their “big break” came in 2015 when Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor offered the band a slot on KNOTFEST in San Bernardino, CA, with Slipknot, Judas Priest, Korn, Mastodon, All That Remains, and more, and introduced them to EMP LABEL GROUP A&R director and Operations Manager Thom Hazaert, who immediately sent the band’s material to David Ellefson (on tour in India at the time with Megadeth), and the band were signed 4 days later.
On 4/1, (5/20 in Europe via SPV) EMP LABEL GROUP re-released the bands sophomore LPMANUFACTURING EVIL, which the band celebrated at Wooly’s in Des Moines, with Ellefson even joining the band on stage in front of a packed house to crush a crowd-pleasing “Green Death-ized” rendition of Megadeth classic “Peace Sells”. Local “Zombie themed” burger joint Zombie Burger + Drink Lab even named a GREEN DEATH burger basket and “Manufactured Evil” shake in their honor to mark the occasion.

Recently Revolver Magazine premiered the video for “Devil’s Night” which can be seen here:http://www.revolvermag.com/news/green-death-premiere-new-music-video-devils-night.html
Manufacturing Evil is a dutiful nod to classic thrash, with a progressive modern edge, that has already been likened to the classics before them. The remastered/remixed offering also features a new version of “Gates of Hell”, with guest vocals by Legendary former Morbid Angel vocalistDavid Vincent.
