DIAMOND PLATE have officially commenced the recording sessions for their Spring 2011 debut album, GENERATION WHY? with producer, Neil Kernon (JUDAS PRIEST, DEICIDE, NEVERMORE, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD) at RAX Trax in the band's hometown of Chicago, IL. "Working with Neil has been incredible;" says guitarist, Konrad Kuplec. "Our plan is simple: bring together great songs, playing, and production with an insane amount of energy. We want to focus on capturing a vibe on this album that hasn't been felt in metal in a long time. People will be amazed at how much improvement and strength there will be on this debut."

By incorporating elements of extreme metal, hardcore and other outside interests, DIAMOND PLATE aims to make a solid thrash album that is proudly modern, yet can stand the test of time. Neil Kernon, no stranger to making records that were hallmarks of aggression, is helping to shape GENERATION WHY? into just that: "I am very excited to be working with Diamond Plate. We're all ready to make a killer album. This is going to be a blast!"

DIAMOND PLATE is a young, dynamic band from Chicago, IL who have taken the midwest metal scene by storm and now have their eyes set on global domination. Formed in 2008, this high-energy act has already earned high honors from respected outlets such as Terrorizer magazine, who named DIAMOND PLATE as one of the Best Unsigned Bands in the very year that the band first got together.
