Beauty In The Suffering At Walker Stalker Con

Beauty In The Suffering, the newly launched electronic-rock studio project from producer DieTrich Thrall (Marazene), will bring its message in the form of zombie apocalypse themed electronic rock to Chicago for Walker Stalker Con 2014.

Walker Stalker Con, to be held from now until March 16th at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center, marks a landmark, if somewhat inevitable, path-crossing of "The Crazies" - the kickoff single and name given to the bands emerging fanbase - and The Walking Dead's "Walker's" - the name given to the zombies in the number one rated television series on AMC.

Said Dietrich: "Very excited to be attending the convention and the incredibly awesome opportunity to cross paths with thousands of fans of zombie culture. We will be sneak-peeking our new music and zombie video trilogy at our booth so make sure you stop by and say 'hello'."

Walker Stalker Con commented: "Walker Stalker Con is the fruit of The Walker Stalkers Podcast with James & Eric. The podcast began with an amazing trip to Senoia, GA where James & Eric were able to view the set of The Walking Dead and meet the incredible actors from the show.

As a result of this experience, a podcast began and then the idea of a convention focused around recreating that same experience with the cast and crew of the show, along with talented actors and artists from other zombie shows, movies and art."

Walker Stalker Con is not just a convention. It is a fan meet-up and an opportunity for each guest to come away feeling like they've had an amazing experience and became part of a greater community of zombie lovers! Walker Stalker Con is three days of events, panels, and experiences that zombie fans won't find anywhere else!"

Beauty In The Suffering world premiered their debut song and zombie music video, "The Crazies," in November and December 2013.

Drum tracking took place on January 30th at Redline Recording Studio in Venice, FL with engineering by Jason Schmidt. Commented Angel:

After spending the last 7 years writing and bringing in guest musicians for my Team Cybergeist project, it's cool to step off to the side and be a guest on someone elses track for a change. Plus it's a cool song, which made it even more fun to play on. I'm excited to see what Dietrich [Thrall] does with Beauty In The Suffering!

Beauty In The Suffering Issues Update

Beauty In The Suffering, the newly launched electro-metal studio project from Marazene producer Dietrich Thrall, has posted a studio update including stills of the band's recent recording sessions at Bell Labs Recording in Norman, OK to the band's official website. The shots feature drummer Chris Emery of American Head Charge and Skinlab guitarist Provo Provenzano, who engineered the marathon (15 hour) session. Thrall offered the following update on the recording session:

Hello to everyone. Quick update here on what's been happening..

Had my friend Chris Emery lay down some drums. Managed to get 7 of the 14 Beauty In The Suffering songs we were aiming for. Very pleased we got that far. Was a pretty crazy session overall in terms of how many tracks we were shooting for. We just dove right in and got as many as we could before our ears threw in the towel.

Provo Provenzano was ace behind the board! The picture with all three of us is from about 10 hours into the 15 hour session. More pictures in the days ahead. Very happy with everything overall. Can't wait to get started on the rest of the tracking! Thanks as always for your support!

DieTrich Thrall Forms Beauty In The Suffering

Marazene producer, multi-instrumentalist, programmer and vocalist DieTrich Thrall has launched a new electro-metal studio project, Beauty In The Suffering. The full statement posted on the website follows:

Beauty In The Suffering is an evolving concept I came up with years ago that best described a sense of optimism during some bright spots of an otherwise massive struggle against overwhelming odds. Music I have been writing and expressing over the last several years has been uniquely intimate in reflecting those struggles and I am very excited about putting out some fresh ideas that represent the here and now.

Beauty In The Suffering deals with universal themes of love and loss, defeat and resolve, and struggle and triumph. Everybody has moments where the road looks impossible to pass. But somehow little by little we manage through our own inner strength and the purposeful placement of fate, chance, and karma. We emerge wiser and with a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our place in the world and the beauty we glean from the suffering we have endured can never be denied.

This is a journey I accepted long ago. I wear the scars of my personal triumph over my struggles with pride and I stand ready to face new challenges. And, like the Phoenix rising from the ashes, this is a new beginning. I thank you all for standing by my side during some very difficult years of active-inactivity. The future is wide open and full of nothing but payoff.

DieTrich (pronounced Dee-Trick) is best known for his co-founding and co-visionary role in the industrial-metal band Marazene (later called Marazene Machine).
