The Danish based death metal band, Ferocity, has released the first single and music video from the new album entitled The Sovereign. The music video for the song ...And the Rest is Silence was filmed at Aalborg Metal Festival 2012 by Emil Vinther Sørensen of Emil Vinther Photography.Ferocity has recently signed a record deal with Deepsend Records. The musical style is brutal and uncompromising, yet with a melodic touch that has been Ferocity's trademark for years. With Nikolaj Kjærgaard on the drums as the newest addition to the band, Ferocity are now focusing a lot more on grind and blast beats than when they first started out. Where other bands go from brutal to more mainstream, Ferocity is doing the opposite! With inspiration from both N.Y. death metal, swedish and polish death metal bands, Ferocity are creating a style of their own...
The new album, "The Sovereign", will be released through Deepsend Records in May/June 2013
Ferocity's drummer Nikolaj Kjærgaard has made the following statement about the music video and the single And the Rest is Silence: "...And the Rest is Silence being our first single and the first track of the new album pretty much sets the style, atmosphere and expression of the album. It represents what the musical style of Ferocity has transformed into over the last couple of years. It has grind parts, a groovy chorus and melodic lead guitar. Three key elements which I think sums up what you could expect of the new album. The music video for ...And the Rest is Silence is our first music video ever and was shot in our home town at a really great show. We think Emil Vinther did a great job shooting and editing the video, and it complements the dynamics of the music really well."

The whole band together stated:
"It's a great opportunity for us to record our first album with a label as WHD. Our philosophy is based on improving every aspect of the band, but sometimes if nobody capable to support you on distributing and promoting your work, all that effort is not rewarded at all. We think it's important that our debut album breaks the borders of our country, as it will be heard by widest possible audience and will offer more touring. We hope this new trajectory is satisfactory for us, for the label and of course for our fans. "
A&R "Worm" stated:
"We have been working closely with Napalm Storm for quite a long time now, so it's time to announce their signing with our label. The guys sent us some really exciting and outstanding demos so we decided to support them with a full length album release. Napalm Storm are a really professional band and they deserve our attention. Get ready for the napalm blast they are preparing for all of you!".

Things like these are never easily decided and we thank our friend and bandmate for three awesome years and wish you a brilliant future."
Fredrik made the following statement in response, "Dear friends and fans! As you now know, I have left the band. We saw it as the only way to go and I want to thank everyone who has gotten me and Deals Death to the point where we are at today. There are many reasons for my goodbye but I personally feel that Im not on the same wavelength as the present band. And when you play in a band such as Deals Death you have to be able to give it your all! My last contribution with Deals Death is recorded and will be heard on the new album and I'm sure you´ll like it. I will continue with my other projects and have no intention to quit making music what so ever. I would also like to thank Deals Death for this wonderful time and great memories!"
