Swedish Thrash Metal Band Condemned AD Unleashes New Album "Follow a Failing Leader"

Prepare to be engulfed in a whirlwind of ferocious riffs and unrelenting energy as Swedish thrash metal titans Condemned AD unleash their highly anticipated new album, "Follow a Failing Leader." With this monumental release, Condemned AD dives deep into the dark recesses of human experience, delivering a sonic assault that spans the spectrum of thrash metal music.

"In the album 'Follow a Failing Leader,' the lyrics reflect the harsh reality through the eyes of us as a band today but also covers a dark past," explains Micke, founder and driving force behind Condemned AD. "We are a Thrash-Metal band with influences from all decades and styles in Thrash metal music. The songs on the album span from melodic progressive metal to dark brutal death vibes. Thanks to Wormholedeath for believing in us, the strive continues to spread our music wherever it may take us."

Formed in 1989 as Condemned, the band faced years of turmoil and mental health struggles before experiencing a hiatus in 1998. However, in 2015, Micke reignited the flames of Condemned's legacy, reforming the band under the moniker Condemned AD, marking the dawn of a new era. Today, Condemned AD consists of Micke on guitar and vocals, alongside Juan on drums (with Alex, guitar, tragically passing away in Feb 2022).

With influences ranging from Motörhead to Megadeth, Condemned AD crafts music that delves into the depths of human emotion and experience. From the chaotic frenzy of thrash to the melodic intricacies of progressive metal, "Follow a Failing Leader" is a testament to the band's versatility and creativity.

Recorded at Titanslab in Italy in October 2021, "Follow a Failing Leader" represents the culmination of years of dedication and passion from Condemned AD. Despite the challenges posed by the Covid-19 pandemic, the band persevered, channeling their collective energy into the creation of this monumental album.

As Condemned AD prepares to unleash "Follow a Failing Leader" upon the world, they invite fans old and new to join them on a journey through the darkest corners of the human psyche. With its blistering riffs, thunderous drums, and thought-provoking lyrics, "Follow a Failing Leader" is a must-have addition to any thrash metal aficionado's collection.
