HAIL, QUEEN OF HELL!

New album announcement: It's the rise of the Krimson Kult! 

The Krimson Kult front cover artwork by Joseph Schmalke


A Sound of Thunder is proud to announce the Kickstarter campaign for our seventh original studio album, entitled The Krimson Kult. Production of the album is dependent on the all-or-nothing crowdfunding campaign which runs from April 28th through May 28th. If the campaign is successful we will record the album in June with a tentative release date in October. 

The Krimson Kult is available for pre-order (exclusively via Kickstarter) in the following formats:

  • CD digipak
  • Glow-in-the-dark splatter vinyl
  • Cassette 
  • Digital download

Kevin '131' Gutierrez (Raven, While Heaven Wept) will return to produce, engineer, and mix the album.

Cover artist Joseph Schmalke (The Electric Black, Cherry Blackbird) is creating an original piece of art for each song on the album, to be presented alongside the lyrics, creating an audio-visual album experience. 

In addition to The Krimson Kult album, we are also creating a new non-album single based on Valiant Entertainment's SHADOWMAN comic book series. Horror author and Shadowman series writer Cullen Bunn is collaborating with the band on lyrics for the song.

Kickstarter backers will also have access to a brand new A Sound of Thunder exclusive variant cover edition of the Shadowman #1 comic book from Valiant Entertainment. The cover by artist Paul Pelletier (Incredible Hulk, Batgirl) features Shadowman and the members of A Sound of Thunder in an homage to the cover of Iron Maiden's classic album The Number of the Beast.

Shadowman #1 A Sound of Thunder Exclusive Variant Comics
Modern Variant (500 Copies) - Virgin Art Variant (50 Copies) - Classic Variant (50 Copies)

More information, including video messages from the band, clips of the album demos, and more merchandise options are available on the Kickstarter campaign page

A SOUND OF THUNDER TAKES SABBATH ACOUSTIC (FULL SONG STREAMING NOW) 

We have released our acoustic cover of the Black Sabbath song “Too Late” as a streaming single. The song was originally written and recorded by the Ronnie James Dio-fronted lineup of Black Sabbath for the Dehumanizer album, released in 1992. A Sound of Thunder’s version of “Too Late” is available on all major music streaming services worldwide from April 2nd. 

Listeners will hear a drastically different version of “Too Late” in our version. We chose to strip the song down to its most basic elements in order to emphasize Ronnie James Dio’s lyrics. The lone vocal track and single acoustic guitar accompaniment are meant to reinforce the sense of isolation and despair inherent in the original composition. 

 

You can find “Too Late” on their favorite streaming service at the following link:

https://asoundofthunder.hearnow.com/

 

"Too Late" high quality download available FREE here: 

https://asoundofthunderband.com/single/33836/too-late



"Too Late" is available on physical media on the 2CD edition of Parallel Eternity:

https://www.asoundofthunderband.com/parallel-eternity

PARALLEL ETERNITY IS HERE! 

The new album has arrived! We're celebrating our 10th anniversary with Parallel Eternity which is both an album and a book chronicling the first ten years of A Sound of Thunder!

We collaborated with composer Brad Charles to create the most epic version of A Sound of Thunder yet: fully orchestrated and over the top! The centerpiece of the album is the 13+ minute "Explorer", a song so epic it spans seasons and crosses continents! The album also features new orchestral versions of fan favorite tracks with new vocal arrangements and new guitar solos.

To fully celebrate 10 years of Thunder you'll want the 2CD edition which features 12 additional tracks not found on the vinyl or digital albums! These include two brand new songs plus crazy alternate versions of fan favorites in various styles from Celtic to dubstep...no, we're not kidding! 

The Parallel Eternity deluxe book is a 72-page history of the first decade of ASoT, featuring tons of photos, artwork, full album lyrics, band commentary and more. Imagine an album booklet, tour book, and biography all rolled into one! 

Parallel Eternity is due out on December 18th worldwide, but physical copies are shipping now from our webstore with free autograph options!
