LOCK UP — the international grindcore “supergroup” featuring Kevin Sharp (BRUTAL TRUTH, PRIMATE, VENOMOUS CONCEPT), Anton Reisenegger (PENTAGRAM, CRIMINAL), Shane Embury (NAPALM DEATH, BRUJERIA, VENOMOUS CONCEPT) and Nick Barker (CRADLE OF FILTH, DIMMU BORGIR) — premiere a new song called “Mindfight” which can be streamed below.
The track is taken from LOCK UP‘s forthcoming album, “Demonization”, which will be released in March 2017 via Listenable. The disc was recorded at Parlour Recording Studios in Kettering, U.K. with longtime friend and acclaimed producer Russ Russell (THE EXPLOITED, NAPALM DEATH, EVILE, THE BERZERKER, DIMMU BORGIR).
“Demonization” is the first LOCK UP album to feature “vokillist” Kevin Sharp, who replaced Tomas Lindberg (AT THE GATES) in 2014.
Kevin made his live debut with LOCK UP at Manizales Grita Rock festival in Colombia in October 2014.
Said Sharp: “Barker is an absolute pleasure to follow — hits like an asshole on fire. Anton‘s tones and riffage are simply metallic and classic. And Shane and myself — well, we’ve done VENOMOUS CONCEPT for over 10 years now — I know how the man is wired.
“I’m super stoked to see the variables put together… This is gonna be ridiculously heavy.”
Russ previously stated about his renewed collaboration with LOCK UP: “I’m absolutely chuffed sick to be back in the studio with my old mates LOCK UP.
“It’s been 13 years since we last dipped our toes in the lake of fire. This time we’re diving in head first screaming for Satan.”
