Eric Bass, bassist for the band SHINEDOWN, recently entered Ocean Industries in Charleston, South Carolina to lay down bass tracks on a new TEAM CYBERGEIST song titled "Crisis In Me". The track also features DOPE drummer (and TEAM CYBERGEIST founder) Angel Bartolotta and Alan Price from the band SOULS HARBOR.

On July 10, TEAM CYBERGEIST independently released its first full-length double-disc (26 tracks) album titled "How To Destroy Something Beautiful" in the United States. The project was founded by Angel Bartolotta and features collaborations and guest performances by members of STONE SOUR, MORBID ANGEL, KITTIE, ADEMA, PIGFACE, DARK NEW DAY, GENITORTURERS, GODHEAD, PIG, PSYCLON NINE, AMEN, KMFDM, and many others. An 18-song version of "How To Destroy Something Beautiful" was released in Japan (RB Records) on November 18, 2009.
In an interview, Angel Bartolotta said, "In a music scene constrained by ruthless competition and heightened egoism, it is exciting to lead a project that unites a team of humble musicians from a diversity of backgrounds who willingly composed for the love of music. This album is a collaborative effort, meant to break down the hierarchical nature of the music industry. We all hope that you enjoy our collective expressions in the form of these songs."
