Thank you for enjoying it!
Camden - looking forward to (hometown metallers) 7K new one as well!
Just made Blabbermouth, too! LET THE TROLLING BEGIN! XD
I checked it out, and while I didn't pledge last night I most definitely will very soon.
Your future pledge is very much appreciated!!
So here's a preview of the new single, Queen of Hell! Hope ya like!
BENEDICTUM Vocalist To Guest On New A SOUND OF THUNDER EP
Washington, D.C.-based heavy metallers A SOUND OF THUNDER are now offering their new EP, "Queen Of Hell", exclusively through Kickstarter.com. The EP serves as a follow-up to the 2012 studio album, "Out Of The Darkness", and teaser for the band's next studio CD, "Time's Arrow", due in spring 2013.
"Queen Of Hell" was produced by Kevin "131" Gutierrez (SHINEDOWN, WHILE HEAVEN WEPT, DECEASED) at Assembly Line Studios in Virginia. A SOUND OF THUNDER guitarist Josh Schwartz states, "We had too much great material for our next album and weren't willing to shelve it, so the EP was a no-brainer. It gives us a great reward to offer the fans who support our fundraising campaign for the next album, and reduces the wait time for new music from the band."
A preview of the new release is available below.
BENEDICTUM vocalist Veronica Freeman makes an appearance on the "Queen Of Hell" EP, performing a duet with A SOUND OF THUNDER vocalist Nina Osegueda on the title track.
"Veronica is a real metal monster of a vocalist, and has the power and presence to deliver this kind of classic metal," said Schwartz. "She is a true queen of metal and together with Nina, your speakers might just explode!" .
Freeman commented: "Sometimes I get asked to do a special project and I have to give it a bit of thought, but with Nina, having performed with her on stage before and knowing how she can 'bring it,' I knew it was not only going to be a lot of fun, but that it would be some kick-ass music to work with. It was a real honor to be asked to work with her and A SOUND OF THUNDER. Hmmmmm, hope to do something more in the future... you never know!!"
Most excellent!! Well done!
Reading this just made my night!
FotV - Bringing kick-ass metal women together since 2007! :Shedevil:
Nina, I cannot tell you and the guys how stoked I am to hear this whole EP! And I agree with Jasonic, way to keep the momentum going!
Oh, and I love the artwork, both front and back!
It looks like you all get your own killer metal caricature (for lack of a better term) on this cover. The back, I'm guessing from left to right: Chris, Jesse and Josh?
Yep! Jesse is all front and center, for once.. XD
Done and dusted!!
I've done this type of thing w/ a few other bands/artists too, and it's a pretty cool thing - directly supporting music that may not otherwise get out.
The first time, and only one that has reached completion so far, for a British artist (Ginger, of The Wildhearts) ended up being a huge success, hope yours does well too (love the last album).
Thank you SO MUCH!! I hope it's successful, too. I must say, the amount of support we've gotten already has been very reassuring. There is hope yet for folks like us!
BLAZE BAYLEY To Guest On New A SOUND OF THUNDER Album
That is awesome. I'm in. Pledge has been pledged. So out of curiosity, perhaps you can IM me off thread...but what happens if the kickstarter doesn't meet its goal? This is the first one I've ever pledged to, so I'm curious how it works. or at least will work for you. Thanks.
Well I'd like to let everyone know that we will definitely make the goal. We've got a few high contributions coming that should push us over the edge, but they people who are going to make them need to wait a bit longer.
Thanks so much for contributing, we promise that everyone will get what they pledged for!
