Classic melodic metal played from the heart. No trends, and no b.s. That's A SOUND OF THUNDER in a nutshell. We play metal the way you want to hear it but nobody seems to play it anymore; big riffs, solos you can play air guitar to, rhythms that shake the earth, and a stunning vocalist who's been called the love child of Rob Halford(Judas Priest) and Bruce Dickinson(Iron Maiden)!
Our last album OUT OF THE DARKNESS was a "surprise knockout" according to MetalUnderground.com, and averaged 4/5 star reviews around the world. We pulled out all the stops giving OUT OF THE DARKNESS top notch production, courtesy of Kevin "131" Gutierrez (Shinedown, While Heaven Wept, Deceased). You responded with overwhelming approval, and for that we thank you! Now it's time for the next step...
The title of our new album is TIME'S ARROW. We've already begun recording with the same band lineup, studio and producer as OUT OF THE DARKNESS, and a new batch of 11 songs that will blow you away! The centerpiece of the album is the epic 9-minute sci-fi/metal title track "Time's Arrow", based on a short-story by our drummer Chris Haren. The album as a whole touches on our roots in metal, prog, classic rock, and even classical, blues, and jazz, and takes us into new territory while maintaining the overall classic metal sound.
Drums, bass, and rhythm guitars for TIME'S ARROW have already been completely recorded. With your help we will track lead vocals, lead guitars, and keyboards, then mix the final album all at Assembly Line Studios in Vienna, Virginia. Studio time is already tentatively booked and with your support we'll complete the album this fall!
