Ibex Moon Records has inked a deal with the Tampa, Fla., band DENIAL FIEND, the new project that unites vocalist Kam Lee (MASSACRE, DEATH) with bassist Terry Butler (Massacre, Death, SIX FEET UNDER), drummer Curtis Beeson (NASTY SAVAGE), and Sam Williams (DOWN BY LAW, PSEUDO HEROES).
“I'm proud to work with these metal and death metal pioneers and I look forward to Denial Fiend putting out a great release,” said Ibex Moon owner John McEntee. “I feel that they will appeal to old school and newer metal fans alike.”
The band’s debut album, which will also mark Lee’s first full-length recording in over a decade, is planned for a June 2007 release. The album is tentatively titled They Rise.
“I think Denial Fiend will surprise a lot of people,” said Butler. “This is not a ‘flash-in-the-pan’ side project. It’s a band that is dedicated and ready to bring metal to the masses!”
Denial Fiend draws on elements of its members’ individual pasts to create an edgy yet classic sound of its own. A demo recording of the track 'Cover Me in Blood' is available on Denial Fiend’s MySpace page. ( http://www.myspace.com/denialfiendband )
