Former MEGADETH bassist David Ellefson, Swedish guitarist/vocalist Guilherme Miranda (ex-ENTOMBED A.D.) and drummer Michał Łysejko (ex-DECAPITATED) have come together to launch a new death/thrash metal band DIETH. Based in Gdansk, Poland the group has released the music video for its first single, “In The Hall Of The Hanging Serpents,” which is available below.
“It has been so much happening lately (in life),feeling the need to express ourselves accordingly,” said Guilherme. “Create something new, have a fresh start. Personally, it was a matter of life or death to come back playing music. To do something truly meaningful and finally cope with the anger and grief. Sometimes you have to die inside to be reborn. This is what Dieth represents, a new sonic driving force that leave the past behind.”
“The three of us have all been recognized in our respective bands and careers but at some point, we had to close the door on those exploits to let something new begin and now we have found it in Dieth,” continued Ellefson. “In fact, the name itself is about dying to one’s past so that something new can spring forth to create the next chapter of life. And that is a connection the three of us hold in common.”
“For me, Dieth is awakening from a creative lethargy, with the full feeling that the time has come,” added Łysejko. “The lightness with which DIETH‘s music flows from us, combining our inspirations and experiences into a whole, is proof of this. The fact that the band was formed in the Tri-City I come from has a symbolic meaning for me.”
