5049Koch Records in cooperation with Sopra Evil is proud to release the debut album by up and coming heavy metal band Dirtfedd. “The American Nightmare” was recorded at ARC Studios and produced by M. Shawn Crahan (Clown) from Slipknot. It includes the tracks “Body Bag”, “No One Gets Left Behind”, and the live show favorite “Salute”, amongst others.

Originating in Lincoln, Nebraska, Dirtfedd have been going since 2002, but it wasn’t until recently that Slipknot’s Crahan discovered the act and brought to the world’s attention the music he describes as “right here, right now”. Crahan goes on to express his excitement at working with the new band: “They are from the Midwest, which gives them a big advantage in how to shape their own vision, rather than get caught up in clichéd scenes … I personally cannot wait until we give this art to the world. It’s time things change”. Crahan adds, “I am equally as excited to be working with Koch Records. They are dedicated to being aggressive in today’s ever-changing record industry, and are willing to help further my vision of where I think music and art should be in this reality: truthful.” “The American Nightmare” marks the first signing to Crahan’s Koch imprint Sopra Evil Records.

Over the years Dirtfedd has shared the stage with metal acts such as Lamb of God, Unearth, and God Forbid. The musical style of Dirtfedd is a collaboration of metal, hardcore, jazz, blues, punk and southern rock molded into a punishingly heavy mix. Combining brutal riffing and pummeling drumming with a unique melodic edge, Dirtfedd’s debut is a blend of metal that will be embraced by fans at both ends of the genre.
