A Sound Of Thunder Posts Preview Clip Of New Track

A Sound of Thunder posted a song preview clip for the new track "Reign Of The Hawklords." The song will appear on the band's new LP "Time's Arrow" expected this year.

The band described the history of the song: "This is a bit of a unique track for us, and not totally representative of the sound of the new album. 'Reign of the Hawklords' was originally written as a 'b-side,' and was intended to be included on the 'Queen of Hell' EP, not Time's Arrow. The entire song is heavily inspired by Hawkwind. Hawkwind are best known in the metal community for Lemmy Kilmister's role as bass player and vocalist in the band in the early to mid '70s, prior to Lemmy's forming Motorhead. They are credited as pioneers of sci-fi themed rock and were one of the first bands to incorporate electronic instruments into rock music.

"Josh (ASoT guitarist) is a longtime Hawkwind fan and had been wanting to pay homage and write something in their style. Assuming this kind of song wouldn't fit well on an ASoT album, the song was intended as a b-side from the beginning, with portions of the song inspired heavily by Hawkwind tracks 'Moonglum,' 'Brainstorm,' and 'Psychedelic Warlords.' Almost all of the song's lyrics are actual Hawkwind song titles, strung together by Nina and Josh to form a very loose outline of a story.

"Plans first started to change after the song was written and the band started rehearsing it. Playing the song felt GOOD. As recording for the album began the intent was still to use the song as a bonus or EP track, but once we started work on the track it quickly became a favorite of the entire band. The last straw was when all the band members confessed to having the chorus stuck in their heads for days on end. At this point the decision was made to throw caution to the wind and add the track to the album! It was just too catchy, and the big heavy riff in the middle and the end of the song was more ASoT than Hawkwind, giving it enough of an anchor in our own style to pass muster. Then all that was left was one of the high points of the recording process...recording the crazy theremin sounds heard throughout the song!

"So there you have it, the story of "Reign of the Hawklords"! We hope you'll have it stuck in your head soon too!

"Oh, and one last thing....we heard a rumor that there's an alternate version of this track featuring a founding member of Hawkwind..."

Blaze Bayley To Guest On A Sound Of Thunder Album

Washington, DC-based heavy metallers A Sound of Thunder have begun work on their third full-length album entitled "Time's Arrow." The band has entered Assembly Line Studios with producer Kevin "131" Gutierrez (Shinedown, While Heaven Wept, Raven). With the same band line-up, producer, and studio that created 2012' "Out of the Darkness" (reviewed here), "Time's Arrow "features 11 new songs combining rousing and catchy traditional metal with crushing modern production. "Time's Arrow" will release in early 2013 and is the subject of the band's current Kickstarter campaign.

Blaze Bayley (ex-Iron Maiden, Wolfsbane) makes an appearance on the album, performing a duet with vocalist Nina Osegueda on the track "My Disease." Guitarist Josh Schwartz comments, "Blaze is a legendary figure in the history of metal, but more importantly he brings incredible power, passion and sincerity to his performances, and that's exactly what we needed on this song. Musically it has little in common with Maiden, and sounds more like a cross between Black Sabbath and Blaze's first few solo albums...and of course A Sound of Thunder."

Bayley also commented: "It has been a real pleasure to work on this song. Filled with passion and intensity, it has an edge. I wish A Sound of Thunder the very best of luck with their project, but with a song this good, I don't think they will need luck."

On August 20th, 2012 A Sound of Thunder started a Kickstarter.com fundraiser campaign for the recording of "Time's Arrow." The campaign will run for 30 days and offers fans a chance to pre-order the album, have their name printed in the album booklet, reserve an ultra-limited box set edition of the album, and acquire unique and rare items from the band. Video at the band's Kickstarter page contains the first clips from the new album. More...

A Sound Of Thunder Announces Guest Vocalist

As was previously announced, Washington, DC-based heavy metallers A Sound of Thunder are now offering their new "Queen of Hell" EP exclusively through Kickstarter.com. The EP serves as a follow up to the 2012 studio album "Out of the Darkness" (reviewed here) and teaser for the band's next studio album "Time's Arrow," due in spring 2013.

"Queen of Hell" was produced by Kevin "131" Gutierrez (Shinedown, While Heaven Wept) at Assembly Line Studios in Virginia. According to guitarist Josh Schwartz, "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 teaser clip for "Queen of Hell" can be found below. Benedictum vocalist Veronica Freeman makes an appearance on the EP, performing a duet with 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. She is a true queen of metal and together with Nina, your speakers might just explode!" said Schwartz.

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!!" More...
