ORCHID – Announce New EP: “HERETIC”

Posted in doom rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , on August 4, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

San Francisco based Doom Rockers, ORCHID, have announced to release an EP featuring 3 brand new tracks + 1 song from the latest full-length album, Capricorn, on September 7, 2012.

The EP, entitled Heretic, marks the first release for Nuclear Blast and will be released both digitally as well as on 10″ vinyl.

____________________________

HERETIC – Track List:

01. Heretic

02. Falling Away

03. Saviours Of The Blind

04. He Who Walks Alone

Commented guitarist Mark Baker: “Late in 2010, after we submitted the „Capricorn“ full length to our label and waited for the release, we realized that there wouldn’t be any extensive touring, so we just kept writing and rehearsing new material. A few months later, we were back in the studio cutting basics for new songs. By the time we finished the business of changing labels, we had way more than one album worth of new songs. We, along with Nuclear Blast, decided it would be a great idea to release a few of those on an EP this year while we wrap up everything for our next full length. We’re really excited for people worldwide to get a chance to check out what we’ve been up to in the last year. These new songs have the classic, anthemic ORCHID sound that people expect from us, along with a few elements that we’ve never shown before.”

ORCHID – Signs With Nuclear Blast

Posted in doom metal, doom rock, Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , on July 29, 2012 by Metal Odyssey

Nuclear Blast is extremely proud to announce the worldwide signing of San Francisco based doom rockers ORCHID!

Commented the band: “After many months of talking to different labels about our future, we’re very excited to announce that we’ve decided to join forces with Nuclear Blast. We’ve been working on new material on and off for the last year and we’re feeling really good about the new songs. It seems like they’re a continuation in the same tradition of the material on our first full length, Capricorn, but also, show some new sides of our music that should surprise everyone and show that ORCHID isn’t a band that just wants to keep making the same album over and over. We’re really excited for everyone to hear it!”

Commented Nuclear Blast head of A&R, Andy Siry: “Ever since we first heard of ORCHID and witnessed their perfect way of bringing back the glorious days of Rock Music, we knew we had to work with this amazing band. After meeting them on their most recent European tour we literally were blown away by their stunningly intense performance! So here we are, proud as f*ck, welcoming one of the most hopefully and authentic bands to the Nuclear Blast family. Every single one at the label loves ORCHID and so will you! CHECK THEM OUT!”

Since their inception back in 2006, the band featuring well-known tattoo artist Theo Mindell (http://www.spidermurphys.com ) on vocals has achieved massive global awareness with their stunning debut releases Through The Devil’s Doorway (EP, 2009) and Capricorn (Full-length, 2011).

The video clip for the title track of the album, a nice video interview with the band by Rock Hard Germanys very own Goetz Kuehnemund as well as some more ORCHID tunes can be streamed at the bands Facebook profile through the “Listen”/”Videos” buttons: http://www.facebook.com/orchidsf

More info on a first release via Nuclear Blast will be announced soon. Keep your eyes and ears open!

KING GIANT – In Final Recording Stages Of New Album “Dismal Hollow”

Posted in doom metal, Heavy Metal, heavy metal news, metal music, metal odyssey, Music, rock music, rock music news with tags , , , , , , , , on May 20, 2011 by Metal Odyssey

Northern Virginia-based Doom-Rock outfit KING GIANT are currently in the final mixing and mastering stages for their upcoming sophomore full-length, Dismal Hollow, currently being slated for release by Autumn 2011.

In March of this year, the five members of  KING GIANT entered legendary Inner Ear Studios (Minor Threat, Fugazi, Avail, Jawbox, etc.) to take their thunderous Doom-bred Southern Rock to the next level on their sophomore full-length; the follow-up to their acclaimed debut album, Southern Darkness. The band have just released a trailer built around the creation of the new album, showcasing some killer footage of what is in store. Check out the newly completed preview of what’s to come right here.

KING GIANT have also recently signed with 313 Artist Management — home of Hour Of 13, Pristina, Cortez, When The Deadbolt Breaks and more — so expect to hear more widespread news and live action from the band in the coming months as more live ventures are booked and the album nears completion.

The band have also raised a Kickstarter project to incorporate fans into the support and creation of their next video, to be filmed later this year. Check out that promo here.

Complete info on the forthcoming KING GIANT album will come to light in the weeks ahead, but this much is certain; the record is guaranteed to be one of the most groove-heavy, Doom-fueled albums of the whole year.

Adrienne Davies – drums & percussion

Released on February 22nd via Southern Lord Recordings, Angels Of Darkness, Demons Of Light 1 represents yet another new chapter in the EARTH lineage, as the band continues to expand their trademark slow-morphing drone a bit beyond the realms they’ve explored on their last handful of releases and recent years of touring, and continuing to reproduce continually inspiring music as they have with every recording to date.

“…unlike most heavy-music acts it changed over time as human beings actually do. Its music became lighter and clearer and wiser; it started having more to do with Indian music and La Monte Young and Miles Davis’s ‘In a Silent Way.’” – The New York Times

“As Earth developed its heavy instrumental vision in the past six years, subtle deviation has been crucial to the band’s renewal. Angels of Darkness, Demons of Light 1  is the latest installment in that trajectory, adding a cello, desert blues and British folk-rock motifs to Earth’s slow-moving Americana.” – NPR
