Former AFTER FOREVER guitarist Sander Gommans is working on a new album as a follow-up to his HDK project (formerly HATE DEATH KILL), which released its debut CD, “System Overload”, in February 2009 via France’s Season Of Mist. According to Gommans, Geert Kroes (DEAD MAN’S CURSE), an “awesome vocalist from the Netherlands,” will be responsible for a lot of the vocal parts on the new album.
A short video clip of Kroes laying down vocal tracks in the studio can be seen below.
HDK‘s sound was previously described by Gommans as “much more aggressive and experimental than the stuff [he] had done before.”
AFTER FOREVER announced its split in February 2009, explaining in a statement that the bandmembers “have reached the point where [they] need to explore the world of music in each of [their] own different ways.”
The band’s last, self-titled album, was released in April 2007 via Nuclear Blast Records.
