COMMENTS

Ex-Slipknot vocalist Anders Colsefni does guest vocals on the band's 'Dawn Of The Death' EP (2012), on the track 'Possessions'. Additional guest vocals (chants) are performed by Anders, Eric Davidson (Dead Horse Trauma), Denny Harvey, and Gene Evans on 'The Devil's Hand/Bathed In Black'.

Nick Svoboda, of On A Pale Horse fame, was, aside from Erich Tran (current lead guitarist), the band's first full-time drummer. He had to quit before 'The Deathening' (2013) was recorded.

In late June 2015, it was confirmed that Green Death had secured a place at KNOTFEST 2015. Shortly after the announcement it was confirmed that they play on Sunday, October 25th on Stage 4 'Extreme Stage'. KNOTFEST is being held at the San Manuel Amphitheater in San Bernardino, CA on October 23-25, with over 50 of the biggest bands in heavy music.

Zombie Burger in Des Moines features a basket named in the band's honor and even a 'Manufacturing Evil' shake this past spring (2015) to promote the album of the same name.

On 24 July 2015, it was announced via Green Death's Facebook page that lead guitarist, Erich Tran, is now officially a part of the ESP Guitars family. At that point, Erich had played ESP Guitars for 22 years!

On 4 December 2015, Green Death announced via their Facebook page that they had signed a deal with EMP Label Group (Ellefson Music Productions), the new imprint label founded by Megadeth bassist and co-founder David Ellefson. The band's album, 'Manufacturing Evil', will be re-issued and re-released worldwide in Spring of 2016 through the new label group imprint.

The band's second album, 'Manufacturing Evil', was re-released in 2016 through the EMP imprint of the legendary label Megaforce. This edition includes a reworked version of the track 'Gates Of Hell', which features David Vincent of Morbid Angel on guest vocals.
