BONDED – the new group by former Sodom members Bernd “Bernemann” Kost (Guitars) and Markus “Makka” Freiwald (Drums) – are pleased to announce the release of their debut album “Rest In Violence” for January 17th, 2020 via Century Media Records.
BONDED, who also feature second guitarist Chris Tsitsis (ex-Suicidal Angels), bassist Marc Hauschild and vocalist Ingo Bajonczak (Assassin) in their line-up ranks, have created nothing short of a highly versatile and hard-hitting Thrash Metal debut together with producer Cornelius Rambadt (Sodom, Disbelief, Onkel Tom) at the Rambado Recording Studio in Essen, Germany.
A first single off “Rest In Violence” is being unveiled today with the track “Je Suis Charlie”. Check out the video clip directed by Nico Schiesewitz / Vizo Films here:
BONDED commented as follows: “Hey Metalheadz! We are pleased to launch the first single from our upcoming album “Rest In Violence” for all of you today. The track is called “Je Suis Charlie” and lyrically brings forth a straight message and upright statement for the freedom of speech and against any religious oppression! We really hope you will enjoy the song and its video clip directed by Nico Schiesewitz / Vizo Films. Stay tuned for more BONDED news soon…”
