Metal Mind Productions Release Information

J.D. Overdrive, one of the best southern metal bands from Poland, return with their finest work to date. The band’s third studio album titled “The Kindest of Deaths” brings 11 songs about death and rock’n’roll, brilliantly produced at Satanic Audio by the producer mastermind Haldor Grunberg. This album snarls, bites and spits venom. Prepare yourself to meet the kindest of deaths.

The band was formed in 2007 when guitarist Michal “Stempel” Stemplowski (along with drummer Luksus and bassist Kuba) recruited vocalist Wojciech “Susel” Kaluza for his new rock project dubbed Jack Daniels Overdrive. They self-released their debut EP called “Pure Concentrated Evil”, which received a bunch of great reviews in various webzines and magazines. They played their very first show supporting the legendary Polish act Jesus Chrysler Suicide and the following two openings for Beatallica. In the meantime the band experienced two line-up changes, welcoming in their ranks drummer Lukasz “Jooras” Jurewicz and bassist Lukasz “Peo” Pomietło. In March 2009 they were given the honor of performing in Krakow with the living legend of stoner metal, Phil Anselmo’s Down. In the following months came the inevitable – they changed their name to J.D. Overdrive to avoid legal problems with the Tennessee tycoon. And just when they thought that nothing can surprise them, at 9 March 2011 they opened for Zakk Wylde’s Black Label Society in Warsaw.

In 2011 the band released their debut album “Sex, Whiskey & Southern Blood” and in May 2013 they returned with “Fortune Favors the Brave”, a follow-up that featured heavier riffs and a dirtier, more massive sound. Now the band is back with their finest work to date, “The Kindest of Deaths”.
