and Canadian hardcore vocalist Liam Cormier of Cancer Bats
have joined up with Jason Bowld of Pitchshifter
, guitarist Mike Kingswood Glamour Of The Kill
and bassist Joe Copcutt of Rise to Remain
to form Axewound
. The band will be releasing their 11-song debut, Vultures
, on October 1, 2012
Frequent Bullet For My Valentine producer Martin 'Ginge' Ford engineered the sessions which led to songs which their label described as "the sort of thrilling assault administered by the likes of Slayer and Sepultura in their pomp.
The first single from the record - "Cold" - is expected to surface in September.
