German Thrash Metallers Bonded who feature in their ranks members and former members of Sodom, Suicidal Angels and Assassin are once again preparing for war with “Into Darkness“, the follow up to 2020’s critically acclaimed “Rest In Violence“. Once again teaming up with producer Cornelius Rambadt (Sodom, Disbelief, Onkel Tom) at the Rambado Recording Studio in Essen, Germany to create the new album, a limited first-pressing CD edition of which comes with two bonus tracks: in “Humanity On Sale” and “Will To Survive” via the pre-orders which are here. Ahead of the 12th November Century Media release they’ve shared a second single in “Lilith (Queen Of Blood)” that has been given a music video directed by Nico Schiesewitz from VIZO Films.
The band comment: “‘Lilith (Queen Of Blood)’ starts with a short intro by the Queen herself, performed by RægIna from Dæmonesq, then is followed by a real thrash metal thunderstorm. Neck-breaking, hectic, brutal and crowned with an epic chorus. Again an interplay between brutal intensity and catchy hooklines. ‘Lilith’ is highlighted by Makka’s powerful drumming and a cool lead guitar duel. A typical BONDED track with tons of riffs, double bass attacks, breaks and so much more! Lyrically, the song is the next track on Into Blackness that represents the conceptional storyline embedded in 4 songs of the album inspired by the fictional book “The Division Of The Damned” by Richard Rhys Jones. It introduces the appearance of an old, ancient female entity – a (blood) goddess called Lilith – the queen of blood!”
