If you’re a regular reader of this blog then I’m sure you remember reading about death thrashers Zafakon on more than one occasion. The band has been steadily rising in popularity in their native Puerto Rico since releasing their phenomenal “Fall” EP back in 2011. Now in 2013 the mighty Zafakon have returned, this time their sights are set on world domination as the band is gearing up to release their debut album, War As A Drug!
I don’t think I’m alone when I say FINALLY! Although its only been two years since their last release its been entirely too long in my opinion. War As A Drug, which will be released through Khaosmaster Productions, will feature 9 tracks of what promises to be some damn good death/thrash!
As if the thought of a new Zafakon album wasn’t exciting enough the band has a surprise for you all, a surprise that just about caused this blogger to fall out of his chair upon reading. Zafakon has drafted Toxic Holocaust main man Joel Grind for a special guest appearance on the album! Comments bassist Weslie Negron:
“It is a great honor to have Joel featured on our album and we are deeply thankful for his time since all of us are also a huge Toxic Holocaust fans.”
Well I’m pretty damn excited about all of this, how about you? Although no release date for War As A Drug has been revealed I think it’s safe to say there is one right around the corner as the band is offering up a pretty sweet pre-sale bundle over at The ZafaStore!
