The group commented:

“We proudly present you our new single ‘Suit Murderer’. This brutal old-school thrash-attack is a straight and explicit lyrical statement to confront politicians, big business-bankers (a.k.a. ‘the men in power’) with their own ruthless and inhuman ways! So better fasten your seatbelts, get ready to fight for your rights and resist ’em all! We hope you enjoy the video-clip, which was again produced by Nico Schiesewitz / VIZO-Films. Stay bonded for more news and tunes soon…”

The first recordings that Bonded played to us some months ago were already of very high quality. Now the debut album is in the making, and what I have heard speaks a very clear language: Bonded play straight-forward metal with a high level of musicality. Teutonic thrash done right.
