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.

The band has also announced a second new release, the "Queen of Hell" EP, due out in November. Also recorded at Assembly Line Studios with producer Kevin "131" Gutierrez, the "Queen of Hell" EP contains four new tracks and is only available via the band's Kickstarter campaign.
