American heavy metal band A Sound of Thunder is offering fans a chance to choose the songs for an upcoming covers album.

The band recently announced details of its new album "The Lesser Key of Solomon" via a crowd-funding campaign, launching the project on Friday, October 25 with a $10,000 fund-raising goal. The goal was passed in less than five days, and pledges have now exceeded $18,000. The campaign ends on Monday, November 25th. The band has decreed that if the campaign reaches $20,000 in pledges, they will record a covers album and give fans the opportunity to vote on which songs the band will cover. To make a pledge before Monday, head over to this location.

"This is really just a way to thank the fans for the incredible and unexpected surge of support we've received," says guitarist Josh Schwartz. "We've got a list of great songs for the fans to choose from, ranging from Deep Purple and Kansas to Devin Townsend and Tool! There will definitely be some surprises on the list." In addition to the fan-chosen songs, the album will also include the band's previously announced cover of "Pleasure Slave" by Manowar, and several songs yet to be announced.

A Sound of Thunder's most recent album "Time's Arrow" (see review here) was released on June 4, 2013 via Mad Neptune Records and features a guest appearance by Blaze Bayley (Iron Maiden, Wolfsband). Their previous album "Out of the Darkness" (see review here) was released on March 27, 2012 via Nightmare Records, and features a guest appearance by John Gallagher (Raven). Both albums were recorded at Assembly Line Studios and produced by Kevin '131' Gutierrez (While Heaven Wept, Deceased, Shinedown).
