Help us raise enough money to press our new full-length "Colossus and the Sepulcher of the Mirror-Warlocks"!
Colossus just got out of the studio recording our new album "Colossus and the Sepulcher of the Mirror-Warlocks" at Warrior Sound in Chapel Hill. Thanks so much to everybody that has come out to shows and bought our merchandise in order to support us, we were able to use our band fund to pay for almost the entire recording, mixing and mastering!
All we need now is enough money to press the album ourselves. This is an opportunity for you guys to help us come up with the rest and get cool stuff in return! Anything at all is appreciated. Thanks for any help you can give us!
If you've never heard of Colossus check out a few songs from our last EP on our website: http://colossusmetal.com/
Here's more from our drummer Doza:
"We finished recording, mixing, and mastering, now we need your help to get cd's pressed. The album has 6 tracks. We've been playing some of the songs live at our shows for over year, such as NIMH and our DUNE trilogy: Stoneburner, Jihad Jihad!, and Miles Teg. We've been stretching out and trying more odd meter parts, challenging harmonies, and more complex song structures. Miles Teg is the fastest Colossus song yet because it's about the fastest dude in the DUNE universe. There are also some brand new songs that no one has heard yet. The Coming of the Destroyer Queen goes all over the place musically and tells the story of how an author's infatuation with a woman from another dimension leads to the destruction of the Earth. Swords Against Death chronicles the adventures of Fafhrd and the Grey Mouser, one of the band's favorite fantasy series. We've spent over a year working hard to refine these songs and we're super proud of the result, we can't wait for you guys to hear it."
And more from our bio on Killer Metal Records:
"Remember when heavy metal was supposed to be fun? COLOSSUS does, and they’ve made it their mission to make sure that you don’t ever forget. COLOSSUS draws heavily on the mighty lineage of bands such as JUDAS PRIEST, IRON MAIDEN, SAXON and the rest of the early 80′s metal legends. But don’t make the mistake of labeling them a novelty act. Colossus fuses humor, epic songwriting and face-melting guitars into a sound that sets them apart from all their contemporaries. The band’s 2007 release “Colossus…and the Rift of the Pan-dimensional Under-gods” has been called “an out and out guitar-freak-out album” and showcases the band’s broad appreciation of musical styles and humorous attitude toward all things, including themselves and their music.
The members of COLOSSUS bring together a resume of former projects that reads like a who’s-who of central North Carolina’s punk and metal scene from the last decade. The band’s current line-up features members of such legendary NC bands as The Scaries, Alli With an I, Amish Jihad, and The Manhattan Project. Formed from the ashes of the instrumental 2-piece, Perrosmith, founding members Nicky Nixon (guitar) and Ben Smith (drums) were joined by Sean Buchanan (vocals), Taylor Lauritson(guitar), and Rylan Wilshire-Eschelman to give rise to the first incarnation of COLOSSUS. Taylor moved to Britain for school and was replaced by current guitarist Bill Fischer. After being accepted to Harvard (yes, that Harvard), Nixon left NC and was replaced by Andy Lewis. But, not to be counted out for long, Nicky still returns from time to time to transform COLOSSUS a six headed heavy metal monster.
The band has toured non-stop over the last few years, including stops at Florida‘s annual heavy metal bonanza, The Fest, in 2008 and South by Southwest in 2008 and 2009.
In 2009 the band also released their widely praised EP “Drunk On Blood” exclusively on vinyl through Nice Life Records. Raleigh NC’s Independent said of the record, ” COLOSSUS oozes talent like a Viking lets blood on a battlefield.” They also recorded the hit single “Sunglasses in Space” for Raleigh’s well received local music compilation “Hear Here”."
