Diamond Plate debut album finished

Chicago thrashers Diamond Plate recently finished recording their debut album, titled Generation Why?.  The album is due to be released later this year on Earache Records.

The highly talented young thrashers recorded Generation Why? with producer Neil Kernon (Judas Priest, Nevermore, Deicide, 3 Inches Of Blood) at RaxTrax Studios in the band’s hometown of Chicago, Illinois.

Diamond Plate guitarist Konrad Kupiec comments:

“For the first time, we’ve been able to capture what our band is capable of.  The months of practice have payed off, and we couldn’t be prouder to release this record as our debut.  Our songs came out tighter and heavier than ever, and the crushing mix by Neil has taken our sound to an entirely new level.”

A previous message from the band while they were in the studio reads:

“Working with Neil has been incredible.  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.”

Diamond Plate is a young, dynamic band who have taken the midwest metal scene by storm.  Formed in 2008, the high-energy act has already earned high honours from respected outlets such as Terrorizer magazine, which named Diamond Plate as one of the “Best Unsigned Bands” in the very year that the group first got together.
