After a near-decade absence, the world’s most relentless band, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE, has made a resounding return to the stage with their fresh single, “No Pain No Gain,” accompanied by a brand-new music video
With an upcoming album scheduled for 2024 and a recent global deal signed with the esteemed Austrian rock and metal powerhouse, Napalm Records, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE is back in full force, and it’s been well worth the wait!
AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE, the unforgettable brainchild of Tim Lambesis, the frontman of AS I LAY DYING, made its debut 15 years ago as a solo project. The band swiftly ascended to prominence in the metal scene with their 2008 debut album, “Total Brutal.”
Following two more highly praised albums in 2009 and 2014, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE achieved the seemingly impossible—they disbanded. However, after a decade of renewal and rejuvenation, and with the support of dedicated friends by his side, Lambesis eventually found the inspiration to create new music for the project, transforming it into the collaborative, reinvigorated endeavor it was always meant to be. Now, the band is gearing up for the release of their fourth album, with a tentative release date set for 2024.
Offering a potent taste of what’s to come, “No Pain No Gain” boasts special guest vocals from the pro-bodybuilder Craig Golias and a scorching guitar solo courtesy of the guitar virtuoso Angel Vivaldi. This hard-hitting metalcore track packs a punch reminiscent of the mighty Ahhnold himself, featuring driving riffs and an infectious melody. Don’t overlook this scorching scorcher (or neglect leg day, for that matter), and get ready to rock out with “No Pain No Gain“! Naughhh!!!!
Tim Lambesis shared: “This upcoming album – it is the heaviest of them all. Ahhnold told me to make it more brutal, and so of course I listened. For music production nerds, it’s also a more modern style of production than what you may be used to with this band, but still retains my thrash roots – which you can hear on ‘No Pain No Gain‘. Anyway, Ahhnold told me I’ve really grown up and come into my own as a well oiled machine… but he also said to destroy the machines, so I’m a little confused…
Also, I’m honored to be working with Napalm Records! Besides Napalm having such a powerful global presence and an incredible staff, Ahhnold told me we had to sign based on the brutality of the name alone. Like 80’s action and Ahhnold, it is the perfect combo.”
Known for their humorous and aggressive style, AUSTRIAN DEATH MACHINE is celebrated for their blend of metalcore and Arnold Schwarzenegger-inspired themes in their music.
