The most METAL band on earth is releasing our new EP! But not without your help! Be a part of METAL history and get cool stuff!


HOLY DIO - We're 100% funded! It only took 23 hours and 32 minutes for you guys to completely DESTROY this kickstarter. Honestly, thank you so much - you guys are AMAZING. We really feel like we have the best fans in the world (probably because WE DO)!!

However, this kickstarter only covers 1/3 of our total cost for printing the album ($500 art, $1600 press = $2100), so since you guys just decimated $700 in a day, let's keep this ball rolling!

SECONDARY GOAL - $1400 - If we can make it to $1400, everyone who donated (even just $1) will receive the entire Death or Sandwich album in 320kbps MP3 format, along with our cover of Government Zero's "Huey Lewis and the News". But wait - that's not all! Anyone who donates over $10 will also receive a glow in the dark patch!

TERTIARY GOAL - $2100 - Full Funding - If we can make it to $2100, we'll be giving everyone who donated $25 or over a sexy Lords of the Trident 2014 calendar (mostly featuring Killius Maximus). Enthrall/disgust your friends! And something else....we'll think of something!

UPDATE
: We made it to over $1,000 in pledges! That's awesome! As a "thank you", we're releasing the cover art to our new EP for all to see! Check it out:

...And I looked, and behold, a pale horse! And its rider’s name was Death, and Hades followed him. And they were given authority over a fourth of the earth, to kill with SWORD and with METAL and with STEEL and by INTENSE HEADBANGING TO THE NEW LORDS OF THE TRIDENT EP!
"

We understand. You're sick of all the sub-par metal out there. Bands filled with angsty-looking dudes taking pictures of themselves in black shirts looking down at the camera, singing songs about how they're angry at their dads, hammering away on their pointy guitars, playing unclean sweep picking... Have you have enough? Because we sure have.

From the most METAL band on earth - the LORDS OF THE TRIDENT - comes their long-awaited 3rd release..."PLAN OF ATTACK"!

Who are the LORDS OF THE TRIDENT? Their METAL's so pure that only diamonds can scratch it, and usually the diamonds are the ones that end up getting hurt in the end. Their amps are so loud, Manowar knocked on their door and asked them to "please turn down". In summary, they are the most METAL band on earth! Don't believe me? See below:

LORDS OF THE TRIDENT have joined forces with producers Doug Olson (head of recording at Madison Media Institute, with production credits for many well-known bands, including Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins, and Cheap Trick) and Martin Atkins (Nine Inch Nails, Ministry, Pigface, Killing Joke) to bring you one of the most epic-sounding EPs you'll ever ingest into your brain canal!

On July 6th, 2013, the most METAL EP you've every experienced will be hoisted out of the molten rock of a live volcano, and unleashed upon the world! And that's where you come in.

Unfortunately, volcano-extractor-arms are EXTREMELY expensive, and the band has run out of gold in their underground vaults! We figured we'd just go mining for more, but we accidentally awoke an ancient cave dragon in the process. I'm not going to go into details, but it's just a mess down there. We need your help to get this EP out to the world!

If you can pledge but a few of your mortal dollars, it would help us spread this most worthy METAL to those who need it most. Think of it like UNICEF, but with guitars.

But you're not throwing money at your computer screen and getting NOTHING in return - no sir! Check out our various pledge levels on this kickstarter page! You'll find everything from MP3 copies of the album, to shot glasses, to 5-foot-tall confetti cannons. It's win-win, my mortal friends!

The CD Release Party for PLAN OF ATTACK will be held at the REGENT STREET RETREAT (1206 Regent Street, Madison, WI) on Saturday, July 6th 2013, and rewards may be picked up at the show. We can also mail your rewards to you for a small additional fee (see individual reward details).

So please, help the most METAL band on earth - The LORDS OF THE TRIDENT - release one of the most METAL albums you'll ever hear!

For more details on the band, visit our website, http://www.LordsOfTheTrident.com

If you're in the Madison area, don't forget to go to the CD release party at the Regent Street Retreat (1206 Regent Street) on July 6th!

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on Kickstarter

The risks involved for backers are very minimal. The EP will be released come hell or high water, or (more likely) massive crippling debt. Your pledge can help abate that debt.

We have a limited number of some prizes left (for example, shot glasses), but if we run out, we will order more. There may be a delay for some recipients if we run out, but we will actively communicate with you.

We've already met most of the challenges, and kicked them square in the face. The last hurdle of funding awaits!
