Diamond Plate posts new track "At the Mountains of Madness"

"At the Mountains of Madness", a brand new track from US thrashers Diamond Plate, can be streamed at this location. The song comes off the group's debut album "Generation Why ?" due to be released on August 29th via Earache Records.

Guitarist Konrad Kupiec comments : "All of us couldn't be more excited to release 'At the Mountains of Madness' as the first song off 'Generation Why?'. With the original video for this song nearing 100,000 views on YouTube, 'Mountains' is arguably the song most people know us by, and we want to give old and new fans the perfect representation of how much we've improved over the past few years. With this album, the band sounds tighter and heavier, while the song-writing is more focused than ever.

The song is inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft novel of the same name, although we went deeper than the classic horror story of the novel and made our own social commentary present in the lyrics. As to our theme, that is for the listener to interpret and figure out.

Right now we're actually hard at work at writing for the second album (very inspired and not wasting any time haha), while simultaneously preparing to hit the road for the first time in August. With touring plans already in the works until next year, we will be out for a long time

Diamond Plate enters studio to record Earache debut

published on February 17, 2011 by Darren Cowan
DIAMOND PLATE have officially commenced the recording sessions for their Spring 2011 debut album, Generation Why? with producer, Neil Kernon (JUDAS PRIEST, DEICIDE, NEVERMORE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) at RAX Trax in the band's hometown of Chicago, IL. “Working with Neil has been incredible;" says guitarist, Konrad Kuplec. "Our plan is simple: bring together great songs, playing, and production with an insane amount of energy. We want to focus on capturing a vibe on this album that hasn't been felt in metal in a long time. People will be amazed at how much improvement and strength there will be on this debut."

By incorporating elements of extreme metal, hardcore and other outside interests, DIAMOND PLATE aims to make a solid thrash album that is proudly modern, yet can stand the test of time. Neil Kernon, no stranger to making records that were hallmarks of aggression, is helping to shape Generation Why? into just that: "I am very excited to be working with Diamond Plate. We're all ready to make a killer album. This is going to be a blast!"

Generation Why? will be released on Earache Records in Spring, 2011.

DIAMOND PLATE is a young, dynamic band from Chicago, IL who have taken the Midwest metal scene by storm and now have their eyes set on global domination. Formed in 2008, this high-energy act has already earned high honors from respected outlets such as Terrorizer magazine, who named DIAMOND PLATE as one of the Best Unsigned Bands in the very year that the band first got together.
