One Dead Three Wounded
Press Release reports: On July 18th, 2006, One Dead Three Wounded will release Moving Units, their sophomore effort on New Jersey-based 1x1 Music. "We spent more time on this record� a year�it makes for a better record," says vocalist Tim Zahodski. "It's more aggressive, pissed off, cynical�and it's better written." Continuing in the band's unique style, Moving Units is a metal/hardcore fan's fantasy album: the bastard child of Southern grooves and sledgehammer breakdowns.

"Moving Units is our reaction to the insincerity of the business side of music. We've never been in a position where that mattered. It's a record that really questions our ethics and our place as apart of the industry. It also serves as a reminder for our future selves to not get sucked into it all. I want it to remind us what motivated us to play music to begin with: five kids in a van, in a basement, or a hall sharing something."[see full story for more]- Click Here for the Full Story

Clues have been left in plain view for all to see, so join us now as we attempt to unravel the profound perplexities and the betwixting mysteries of the secrets of the universe hidden within the legendary�[see full story to discover the secrets of the code]- Click Here for the Full Story
