Being charged for allegedly hiring a hitman to kill his wife somehow has not slowed down As I Lay Dying’s Tim Lambesis’ music career. The metal singer’s Arnold Schwarzenegger-inspired side project, Austrian Death Machine, is preparing to release Triple Brutal, the band’s third full length album as the result of raising nearly $80,000 via crowd-funding.

Based on the amount donated, contributors to the Indiegogo campaign chose to receive such unique items such as having Lambesis as “your personal trainer for a month,” spending a day in the studio with the band, recording vocals alongside Lambesis and for a mere $5,000 contribution, “Your initials tattooed on Tim’s butt and dinner to celebrate after.” Sadly, no one claimed the “Inked in Ink” tattoo offering.

“Tim finished all of his parts back before he went on tour in Asia,” said the band’s “Ahhnold” character in a recent post to the band’s Facebook page. “He was just waiting for me to do my parts and put together the finishing touches on the mix of the album. I’m working on that this starting this week now that I have the files. The CD should be done soon and then we’ll start planning to manufacture.”

The soon-to-be-released disc features guests including members of Hatebreed, Death by Stereo, DevilDriver, All Shall Perish, and Bleeding Through. The album boasts a track list that reads like a Schwarzenegger SNL comedy skit with songs like “I’ll Be Back,” “Chill Out Dickwad,” and “One More Rep.”

The Austrian Death Machine project is particularly coincidental and humorous, as Lambesis’ attorney claimed that steroids were largely to blame for his mental state during the alleged crime. Lambesis was said to have become so into bodybuilding that he’d moved from taking nutritional supplements as a paid spokesman to full-blown steroid consumption, claiming that the singer’s “thought processes were devastatingly affected by his steroid use.”

Having ponied up $160,000 in cash to All-Pro Bonds in Vista, Calif., near the North San Diego Country Courthouse where he was jailed, Lambesis is now temporarily free, albeit outfitted with GPS tracking device.

Lambesis’ next court appearance is scheduled for June 26.
