World Gone Mad is the band's first album since 2013's 13. It's also their first album to feature former SLAYER DRUMMER Dave Lombardo, who first joined the band for their last US tour, along with new members Ra Diaz on bass and Jeff Pogan on guitar.
World Gone Mad was produced by band frontman Mike Muir, with help from legendary producer Paul Northfield, who also engineered and mixed the record. Additional engineering was undertaken by Pogan.
On working with Lombardo, Muir says, ""It's interesting, because a lot of people, obviously, associate Dave with the Slayer sound. When you hear how he literally attacks the various styles on this album, you're instantly blown away at not only how insane of a drummer he is, but also how tremendously diverse a drummer he is. Dave is a true legend, but I believe even a lot of his most hardcore fans will be blown away at what he’s brought to this record. He's a great guy, amazing to work with and whether it's live or in the studio, he brings a whole different intensity and rhythmic feel to the band. And he's definitely got the Cuban thing going on, that Latin flavor, where he gets to do show a little bit more of that style in Suicidal. When you hear it you definitely know it's Dave, but it definitely takes us to another level. I’ve always been a huge fan, now even more so!"
World Gone Mad is release through Suicidal Records on 30 September. It's available to pre-order through the band's website.
