(Earsplit) Twisted Tower Dire have completed their fifth full-length album, Make It Dark, which is set for North American release on May 3, 2011.
Twisted Tower Dire's name has been synonymous with uncompromising classic heavy metal since its inception in 1995.
Formed out of "a stubborn hatred for the '90s anti-metal culture," the band have always been able to maintain a respectable profile, not following transitory trends but keeping true to their original metal beliefs.
After their 2007 release Netherworlds, Twisted Tower Dire took a short break which included the entry of new singer Johnny Aune (Viper) replacing Tony Taylor, who was tragically killed in a motorcycle accident on February 6th, 2010. Rounding out the current lineup is bassist Jim Hunter (Revelation, October 31, While Heaven Wept), drummer Mark Stauffer (Krass Judgement) and guitarists Scott Waldrop (While Heaven Wept) and Dave Boyd (Volture).
TTD have confirmed their next live appearance on May 20th in Raleigh, North Carolina, and will be announcing more live actions over the coming months in support of the new album.
