Metal Mike’s PAINMUSEUM, led by HALFORD/SEBASTIAN BACH guitarist Metal Mike Chlasciak, has set July 1st, 2006 as the release date of “You Have The Right To Remain Violent” enhanced EP.
To be released exclusively on Metal Mike’s own imprint C.M.M. Entertainment, LLC, the EP will feature a new studio track “Scars In Black”, 3 tracks taken from the band’s debut “Metal For Life”, a video for “Speak The Name” as well as animated menus, custom video players, photo gallery, six wall papers and an exclusive video message from Metal Mike.
James Murphy (TESTAMENT/DEATH) has once again provided the mastering duties at The Safe House in FL, while art was done by Darkmouth Design (HATEBREED). The line up of musicians appearing on the EP remains same as in the band’s 2005 debut “Metal For Life”:
Metal Mike Guitars (HALFORD/SEBASTIAN BACH)
Bobby Jarzombek Drums (HALFORD/SEBASTIAN BACH)
Steve DiGiorgio Bass (TESTAMENT/DEATH)
Tim Clayborne Vocals
Joe Comeau additional Vocals (OVERKILL/ANNIHILATOR)
Roy Z (JUDAS PRIEST/HALFORD/BRUCE DICKINSON) mixed all tracks.
“This special release is for many of our fans who write inquiring about a new PAINMUSEUM album. While we get our asses over to the studio and complete the next release, this is for the ones who are interested in our brand of Heavy Metal. This is a good way to further introduce new fans to the band who might have not yet hear our debut album and will help us further our mission during our headlining East Coast Violence 2006 tour dates this Summer. Crank this shit up”, commented Metal Mike.
Not to be licensed in any other territory, “You Have The Right To Remain Violent” will be available exclusively in North America through C.M.M. Entertainment, LLC, and on import in all other territories.
Century Media’s CM Distro will provide all North American retail location sales while on-line retailers will include cdbaby.com, bestbuy.com, guitarmusic9.com and towerrecords.com.
