NEW TRANSFIGURATION TRACK + ALBUM ARTWORK REVEALED!
NEWS FLASH: We've just received another preliminary mix from our new recording, fresh off the board! BUT WAIT...THERE'S MORE! We also have some album artwork we're going to be sharing with you. Once again, we're posting these items exclusively on Kickstarter for our faithful supporters to explore FIRST! THANX again to the supporters of this Kickstarter. With your support we're now up to 47% funded with 13 days to go! Time is running out...and we're only about halfway there to reaching our ultimate goal of assembling pledges of a minimum of $800. BUT WE SHALL SOLDIER ONWARD UNTO THE END!!! For awareness of our quest is growing each day, and I feel confident that we are going to reach our goals one way or another. And so keep watch my friends! For every couple of days from this posting until the deadline of August 31st I'll be providing updates to this Kickstarter revealing new mixes, album artwork and other details about the new Cult of Dionysis recording, Transfiguration.
Attached to this update you'll find a cut of the song "Gravity & Destiny", which will be featured on the new album. We shall not be winning any pop music awards for this song, my friends. That much, I can assure you. It is likely the most brutal creation the Metalcult has ever unleashed. And it's probably a good example why we will need your assistance in bringing this music to the masses. This is underground music designed for the denizens of the underground. Consider us "Black Market Metal". We are bypassing the traditional "music industry" by creating our own quality music and merchandising productions. Straight from the band, into your hands. No vampires sucking the life blood out of our music or watering it down in some bloated effort to line their own pockets with extra cash. This song is about the band's seemingly impossible goal of becoming successful with our music on our own terms. In this song, the lyrics compare what we're trying to accomplish to a Viking Ship rowing up a waterfall. It's a strange analogy, but it makes sense to us. We've been rowing, and rowing, and rowing, and rowing for years...but we're inching closer to the top of the falls every year Brothers & Sisters!
Also attached you'll find a design created by comic book writer, artist, and creator Brett Marcus Cook. Here are some links to check out so you may sample his work:
As some of you may already be aware, I myself am a comic book writer, artist, and creator. I have the greatest respect for anyone who puts the effort, care, and love into a story enough to write, draw, and produce it themselves. And that is why I contacted Brett and asked him if he'd be willing to contribute something to our upcoming album. We talked about an idea utilizing the character I created for my own Metalcult Comix series, "Kill Grrl". The next thing I knew, Brett had delivered up this incredible piece depicting Kill Grrl as a nude winged angel, complete with unique halo, light rays, and clouds...BAM! Home run. This piece will be featured on the disc face of the CD itself. So those of you who are familiar with the character Kill Grrl may be amused to realize that when you play the Transfiguration disc, you will actually be placing Kill Grrl herself into your audio device! Automatically, your disc player becomes 75% more sexy and brutal just by inserting Transfiguration into it! Food for thought.
