triple brutalNeah…1,2,3,4….Neah…1,2,3,4….Neah!  If you’ve ever heard Arnold Schwarzenegger speak, you know exactly how that sounds and that is the opening track for Triple Brutal, the third full length from Tim Lambesis’ solo side project Austrian Death Machine.  As side projects go, this one was always rather ambitious in nature as it is a blend of As I Lay Dying type metal with lyrics or at least inspiration supplied by Schwarzenegger films.  As Tim Lambesis once said in an interview, As I Lay Dying is “heartfelt and full of passion”, while Austrian Death Machine is on the other side of the spectrum and an “outlet of pure testosterone and stupidity”.

As any fan of metal knows, Tim apparently took that to heart, abusing steroids and then being arrested for, and pleading guilty to trying to hire a hitman to kill his wife.  To be honest, that makes this album almost some sort of bad joke as it had a release date of April Fool’s Day and given Tim’s current situation, it seems rather odd and/or wrong to release an album filled with references to violence and death no matter how campy it is.  On the other hand, the album was largely, possibly entirely, crowd-funded and the proceeds have been publicly promised to go to the charity World Vision and all of that took place before Tim’s legal troubles surfaced.  Continue reading »

austrian death machineBelow a new update from Austrian Death Machine due to the upcoming album “Triple Brutal”:

Thank you all for your patience and we apologize for the massive delays that we faced scheduling the release for the “Triple Brutal”. As many of you already know, the album is set for release on April 1st (not a joke). The stuff for anyone who contributed to the campaign ship March 28.

We have been putting forth our best effort to fulfill what we have promised. If there are any address changes, please email gymlambesis@gmail.com and we’ll make sure it’s noted before we start filling up packages next month. In addition to the CD, we are getting ready to manufacture all of the material for the perks. If we can’t fulfill the exact perk for whatever legal reason, we have ideas to provide cool alternatives. More info on that as it comes. Lastly, the in-person perks are on hold of course until we hear more in the next month about Tim’s availability. In the meantime, we plan to include extras along with the CD’s going out to those people. Continue reading »
