The band features Tim Yeung (Hate Eternal, Vital Remains) on drums and newcomer Tommy Vext on vocals., with Cazares handling guitar and bass duties and is joined by. The band’s Century Media Records debut, Bleed the Fifth, is set for an August release.

“It took me four years to find the right musicians to make this happen,” Dino says, “and I'm very excited to finally unleash this to the world. Many people will be wondering what it sounds like, but it is hard for me to describe it. All I can say is when you hear the legendary machine-gun riffs mixed with Tim Yeung's lighting-speed double bass drums and combined with Tommy's brutal and powerful vocals, just be prepared to face the annihilation. I promise, you will not be disappointed.”
