DrugMetal.ru has uploaded a six-minute video report on MADBALL‘s August 14 concert at Plan B in Moscow, Russia. Check it out below.

MADBALL‘s latest EP, “Rebellion”, was released digitally last year via The BNB Label, a brand extension of Cricien‘s Black N Blue Productions group. The six-song effort contains four new tracks and newly recorded versions of two cuts from the band’s legendary 1989 seven-inch single, “Ball Of Destruction”. The CD was recorded at Mana Recording Studios in St. Petersberg, Florida with producer Erik Rutan (HATE ETERNAL, CANNIBAL CORPSE, MORBID ANGEL).

“Rebellion” marked the first MADBALL recording with former UNEARTH and THE RED CHORD member Mike Justian, who has served as MADBALL‘s touring drummer for the past couple of years.
