"Hey Metalheadz! We are pleased to launch the first single from our upcoming album 'Rest In Violence' for all of you today.

We really hope you will enjoy the song and its video clip directed by Nico Schiesewitz / Vizo Films. Stay tuned for more Bonded news soon," Bonded states about the release. Rest In Violence also showcases Overkill's Bobby "Blitz" Ellsworth as guest vocalist as well as former Kreator bass-player Christian "Speesy" Giesler on the album's title track.
