It is all inside the head: HDK originally dubbed HATE DEATH KILL started out as a humorous project in the mind of Sander Gommans, guitarist and songwriter in renowned Dutch Metal heroes AFTER FOREVER.
As time progressed HDK gradually took a far more serious and sinister shape – as Sander reveals: "I wrote 'System Overload', while I was full of anger, disgust and hate just before my burn out. Now this album resembles the prophecy of a downfall!"
Although a pinch of sarcasm still remains "System Overload" stands out as a masterpiece of aggression that amalgamates Melodic Death, Classic and Modern Thrash as well as other stylistic influences like female vocals out of Gothic Metal or progressive elements into a super-heavy alloy.

Featuring a host of prominent-guest appearances by among others Amanda Somerville's rich voice and intense lyrics (Aina/Avantasia), Angra's Andre Matos singing clean as well as harsh screams by Mike Scheijen (37 Stabwoundz).
The album also boasts instrumental contributions from the likes as guitarist Arjen Lucassen (Ayreon) and Joost Van den Broek (After Forever).
With its wide range of vocals and styles "System Overload" never fails to surprise: the stunning diversity of its songs will blow your mind!

I really love System Overload, it's the heaviest album I regularly listen to. I can;t quite say why but everything just seems to work...

I usually only listen to it when I'm in a really bad mood, but I like it a lot, particularly System Overload and Fight or Flight.
