Bullet For My Valentine, Cancer Bats Supergroup AxeWound Set Debut

The End Records have set an October 2nd release date for metal supergroup AxeWound's debut album Vultures.

AxeWound was founded by Matt Tuck from Bullet For My Valentine and singer Liam Cormier of Cancer Bats and features drummer Jason Bowld (Pitchshifter), guitarist Mike Kingswood (Glamour Of The Kill) and ex-Rise To Remain bassist Joe Copcutt.

The roots of AxeWound go back to 2010, when Jason Bowld filled in for Bullet For My Valentine drummer Michael 'Moose' Thomas on a brace of shows. He and Tuck kept in touch and last year began discussing working together on a project separate from the hugely successful Welsh metallers. They eventually got together in December 2011 to write the songs that make up AxeWound's debut album, Vultures.

The Vultures album was recorded in Cardiff at the start of this year, regular Bullet For My Valentine collaborator Martin 'Ginge' Ford engineering the sessions. From the outset, the aim was to work quickly and instinctively. In the event, they recorded 11 songs in 11 frenetic days.

"It was very intense, very demanding but that's how we wanted it to be," reasons Tuck. "No pre-writing, no rehearsing… just booking a studio and going in and doing a song a day. We wanted to capture something that happened right there and then."

Says Cormier: "The record is great because it's been made by a bunch of friends who are just enjoying themselves playing together and doing something that's different to what they normally do."
