Team ALL ABOUT THE MUSIC has issued the following:
After tasting blood at the local date of the Rockstar Energy Drink Mayhem Festival earlier this season, underground metal monsters A BAND OF ORCS have succeeded in storming the gates of the last date of the Summer Slaughter Tour on August 25th at the Grove of Anaheim. Also playing are Cannibal Corpse, Between The Buried And Me, The Faceless, Periphery, Veil Of Maya, Job For A Cowboy, Goatwhore, Exhumed, and Cerebral Bore. This represents a step forward for the orcs in their attempt to bring about the Domination, the orc-style ear-drum apocalypse of your frail human realm.
Southern California metalheads who plan on attending the show should plan on showing up early to catch A BAND OF ORCS (1:30pm PST) as they claw their way to the top of the metal heap and add more heads to the pile.
Following up on 2007’s WarChiefs of the Apocalypse EP, A BAND OF ORCS have their first full-length album due out soon, but have had to push back the release date to the end of September. When asked about the delay, bass player and shaman for the band, Gronk!, had this to say, “Us get put behind when us decided to join battle for Mayhem and play some other dates in July. Us live for live raids! But Gogog and us finish brutal vocals last week. Now, audio sorcerer need time to mix magic. All powerful sorcery take time. Hail Gzoroth!!!”
By audio sorcerer, Gronk! means engineer/producer Juan Urteaga of Trident Studios in Pacheco, CA whose most recent credits include chart-busting albums like Machine Head’s “Unto the Locust” and Testament’s “Dark Roots of the Earth.”
A BAND OF ORCS’ Summer Slaughter set will include several tracks from the forthcoming album Adding Heads to the Pile, including their latest single released through Itchy Metal Entertainment entitled “In the Keeper’s Chamber.”
Be sure you catch these savages live to bring the most brutal tour of the summer to an end!
