Melodic death metal Supergroups don’t come with more pedigree than the recently formed Act Of Denial, featuring lead guitarist and songwriter Voi Cox (Koziak, Victim), guitarist and lyricist Luger (Benighted, Koziak), vocalist Bjorn Speed Strid (Soilwork), bassist Steve Di Giorgio (Death, Testament), drummer Krimh (Septicflesh) and keyboardist John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra).
Formed as a direct result of the COVID pandemic, which allowed each member temporary release from their existing projects, Cox says the band is thankful for an opportunity that may otherwise have never happened.
“This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our ‘older age’ we have done something serious,” he said. “Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music. Anybody can do it nowadays and we will support everyone no matter what.
While details of the album are still shrouded in secrecy, Act Of Denial have released a taste of things to come with the single “Puzzle Heart”.
