ACT OF DENIAL release new single Your Dark Desires featuring Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (Guns ‘n’ Roses, Sons Of Apollo), out now, and announce new album Negative, to be released on 13th Aug on Crusader Records.

Your Dark Desires contains trademarks of the late 2000s melodic death metal and features a ripping guitar solo from virtuoso Ron ‘Bumblefoot’ Thal (Guns ‘N Roses, Sons of Apollo).

Vocalist Björn Strid comments: “Your Dark Desires is about inner struggle and being able to separate inherited angst and self-inflicted mental pain; once you’ve learned, you can move on and feel much stronger. The song is motivational and about acceptance.”


Act of Denial is an international melodic death metal group founded by lead guitarist and songwriter Voi Cox (Koziak, Victim) & guitarist Luger (Koziak, Benighted-Cro) in early 2020. They are joined by Björn Strid (Soilwork), bassist Steve Di Giorgio (Death, Testament), drummer Kerim “Krimh” Lechner (Septicflesh) and keyboardist John Lönnmyr (The Night Flight Orchestra).

The band, along with the 6 original musicians, also features other big names and special guests such as Bobby Koelble (Death), Peter Wichers (ex Soilwork), Matias “IA” Eklundh (Freak Kitchen) and Ron ”Bumblefoot” Thal (Guns N’ Roses, Sons of Apollo), who all contributed solos to the album. The album was mixed at Studio Fredman by legendary producer Fredrik Nordström (At The Gates, In Flames, Dark Tranquillity, Arch Enemy).

Act of Denial are excited for you to experience the journey of their latest album, NEGATIVE.
