Good news coming soon! 

We apologize for the lack of updates on here.  I will be adding a bunch of shows to the tour dates section, as we will be playing many shows in the Spring.  We also still have a huge announcement coming regarding the re-release of our album "Manufacturing Evil" with EMP Label Group, but unfortunately, it has to wait just a little longer than we planned.

Stay tuned!

We have signed a Record Deal with EMP Label Group (Ellefson Music Productions) 

We are beyond stoked to be signed with EMP Label Group - Ellefson Music Productions !  Here is the official press release:

Des Moines’ thrashers GREEN DEATH sign with Megadeth co-founder David Ellefson’s EMP Label Group; Release promo teaser featuring Slipknot/Stone Sour’s Corey Taylor. Label to re-release MANUFACTURING EVIL LP WORLDWIDE in 2016.

For Immediate Release |12/4/2015 | Phoenix, AZ/Des Moines, IA

Des Moines thrashers GREEN DEATH have signed a deal with Megadeth Co-Founder/Bassist David Ellefson’sEMP (Ellefson Music Productions) Label Group imprint, who will re-release the bands independent masterpiece MANUFACTURING EVIL in Spring 2016. 

With the core of the band playing together for well over a decade, Green Death, Vocalist Sol Bales, Drummer Ryan Berrier, Erich Tran and Mark Reinking , and bassist Parker Willis, have become a staple in the Midwest Metal scene, earning their stripes playing alongside artists likeSuicidal Tendencies, Sevendust, Trivium, Napalm Death, Battlecross, John 5, Soulfly, Devildriver, Havok, Philip H. Anselmo & the Illegals, Sebastian Bach, Doyle, Soulfly, Black Dahlia Murder, Slipknot, Dying Fetus, and more, and releasing 2 critically acclaimed LPs. Their “big break” came in 2015 when Slipknot/Stone Sour vocalist Corey Taylor offered the band a slot on KNOTFEST in San Bernardino, CA, with Slipknot, Judas Priest, Korn, Mastodon, All that Remains, and more, and introduced them to EMP A&R director Thom Hazaert, who immediately sent the band’s material to Ellefson (on tour in India at the time with Megadeth), and the band were signed 4 days later. 

The band has released a promotional trailer with footage from KNOTFEST featuring Taylor here:

Says Ellefson, “From the minute I heard Green Death I knew these guys were doing something different; one foot firmly planted in the roots of classic thrash, the other pushing the boundaries of Metal forward. These guys definitely have something special. An amazing, progressive band, with an amazing work ethic. And the connection with Corey, who I love, and the introduction coming from him via Thom. (As I’m writing this about to board a plane to Mexico to play KNOTFEST with MEGADETH.) It was just a no brainer.” Ellefson is the bassist and co-founder of Megadeth, the pioneering thrash Metal group that has sold more than 30 million records Worldwide.

"Manufacturing Evil is a huge album for Green Death. It showcases their abilities to write great songs and stand in a niche ...they’ve created for themselves. No one else sounds like this … period.” - Jason Z (

Green Death’s 2nd album, “Manufacturing Evil”-“ The much-anticipated follow-up to the uber-excellent heavy metal melting pot that was 2013’s 'The Deathening'". -DECIBEL MAGAZINE

"Manufacturing Evil is a brilliant showcase in metal that gracefully dances in the worlds of thrash, death, and power metal. This album is a display of the versatility and intrigue of metal music.” - Chuck Marshall – National Rock Review
