NO MORE BEER AT REHEARSAL! Ha ha ha!! Who are we kidding? Awesome jam this evening, going over the show for Metal Meltdown II at the Slice on Jan 21. We even played a few old faves just to warm up. Somebody thought it would be a good idea to video... We might just have to post an excerpt or two, Mwa-ha-ha-ha!!! Tickets are available through any of the acts' FB pages, websites or contact us via Facebook Messenger or email: firstname.lastname@example.org. Don't miss this show!!!
This year's Meltdown features some of southern Alberta's premier original talent with a diverse lineup of progressive metal, high energy rock with a back beat and, of course, traditional metal \m/! The Extrados will open the show at 8:30 with their new set of progmetal and instrumental prowess followed by the outstanding Outrun the Arrow - high energy rock with a blend of punk and ska. Finishing the night will be the Tyrants and we will be introducing the first song, Trench Foot, from our next album! It will be a full evening of high energy performances by some excellent talent.
Plans are in the works to host Metal Meltdown 2 early in the New Year! The inaugural bash went so well, we figured it was time to get on another. Talks are underway to nail down the venue, promotions and - of course - the bill! Some awesome talent is interested in participating. Last year was a sell-out and an excellent time was definitely had by all. Although some details are still being worked out, a couple of things are for sure: it will one hell of a party and Tyrants of Chaos will close the place down! Watch this blog or our FB page for more details soon \m/
A major metal consortium in Russia, the Varg Media Group, has picked up our press release for the CD and has published it in a number of their publications online. Kruto! (which is 'cool' in Russian, for you non-Russian speaking people). There was even a feeler put out for an eastern tour.... hmmm! In any case, these links are pretty kruto:
Most of the Tyrants got together and worked on a new Phil original last night, "Trench Foot" - based loosely around a Sandy riff from 2014 (oh, those dark, cramped days in the old jam hall!) Looking forward to hearing Thunder Tyrant's contribution; It will make the song! Plans for the new video were discussed... It should be awesome! Things were lost but later found, right Tobi?? \m/
So, next Friday (or would that be Thursday here?) Radio Shock is streaming some Tyrants for our eastern fans. Very cool! We just wish we could read Russian, then we could actually figure out the time. Hey, here's an idea: if any of you can decipher cyrillic, comment and let us know!!!
Cheers to all who came out on a Sunday night, in full regalia and/or spirit, and especially those who stayed out verrrry late to check out headliners, Tyrants of Chaos. Men of Nihilist did a bang up job of warming up the sizeable crowd and Caste of Shadows was excellent and entertaining as ever! A big mug of brew to Tony Sidewalk and the crew from the UofL Headbanger Society, Mike and the Pork Stars from the Smokehouse and, most of all, you HEADBANGERS! \m/\m/
