In other news, WORLD UNDER BLOOD is seeking a new drummer that resides “in the Los Angeles area and no more than an hour from Santa Clarita, California.” Applicants should be between 18 and 30-something years old and serious and passionate. Send auditions via YouTube links or anything viewable to email@example.com.
WORLD UNDER BLOOD‘s debut album, “Tactical”, sold around 900 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 32 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.
The artwork for “Tactical” was brought to life by the twisted mind of Pär Olofsson (IMMORTAL, THE FACELESS, ABYSMAL DAWN) and can be seen below.
In an early 2010 online posting, Miller stated about the WORLD UNDER BLOOD debut, “The goal for the eight original tunes that ended up on this album was that they would all be super-fast, extremely brutal and harsh, catchy, melodic, and occasionally offensive and disturbing. I also had to make sure that the entire band was satisfied with their work.
“Tactical” recording lineup:
* Deron Miller (CKY) – Guitar/Vocals
* Tim Yeung (DIVINE HERESY, VITAL REMAINS, HATE ETERNAL) – Drums
* Risha Eryavec (DECREPIT BIRTH) – Bass
* Luke Jaeger – Guitar
