Everything That’s Meaningful In Your Life Will Be Destroyed By Storm King

Everything That’s Meaningful in Your Life Will Be Destroyed
, the brand-new full-length album from Pittsburgh’s progressive death-thrash overlords, STORM KING, will be released digitally and on CD (with a limited edition pressing of only 150 copies) on November 12th, 2013, via the Innervenus Music Collective.

The new album features eight punishing tracks full of misery and pain; primarily drawing on death and thrashcore influences, while occasionally lapsing into extreme sludge metal territory. Six are brand new songs, with the addition of a newly recorded version of “Backfill”, which was previously released on the Innervenus compilation, Iron Atrocity v.1, and has since become a staple of the band’s live show; as well as a cover of Faith No More’s “Surprise! You’re Dead”, which remains fairly faithful to the spirit of the original, and yet by doing so, the band manages to make it their own, as the song feels much more at home among this collection than it ever did within the original recording artist’s repertoire.

Both the CD and digital download versions of Everything That’s Meaningful in Your Life Will Be Destroyed are currently available for pre-order at Bandcamp.

Storm King and the Innervenus Music Collective will be celebrating the launch of the new album with a series of four shows: November 15 in Columbus, OH; November 16 in Wheeling, WV; November 22 in Akron, OH; and November 23 in Pittsburgh, PA.

Formed in April of 2006 by vocalist Scott Massie (Bottomfeeder, the Bully Cats), guitarist Adam Weston (Afterlife, Monolith) and drummer Tom D’Andrea (Unfortunate Friend, Pittsburgh Fire Fighters Memorial Pipe Band), Storm King completed its line-up with the addition of guitarist Andy Kichi (Enemy Mind) and bassist Mark Bogacki (Complete Failure, Enemy Mind) just months before recording their demo EP, The First Four Songs, at Pittsburgh’s Treelady Studios in early 2008. That summer, the band teamed up with engineer/producer, Dave Piatek, who would go on to record the Storm King/Necrolysis Split CD (2008), Angels of Enmity LP (2009), Aura of Failure EP (2010) and now, Everything That’s Meaningful in Your Life Will Be Destroyed LP (2013), all released on the Innervenus label, which is owned and operated by members of the band.

Storm King has shared the stage with Soulfly, Goatwhore, Watain, Bloodiest, Stinking Lizaveta, Complete Failure, Enfold Darkness, Black Anvil, Derketa, Dethlehem, Hero Destroyed, Kamikabe, Neocracy, Anicon, Rue, Argus, Forged In Flame, Vulture, Lady Beast, Mockingbird, Mantic Ritual, etc.

Let’s look at two previous reviews, shall we?

  1. “…ridiculously overstretched drum passages and five minute intro of Massie howling almost as badly as whoever the vocalist(s) of Mastodon is(are)…” – Diabolical Conquest Webzine
  2. “Hellish blast beats and rhythm section (actually their drummer is uhm… semi-God, I’d say) and an avalanche of heavy riffs and solos. When the melodic vocals change the scene to Opeth-like, it’s absolutely wonderful.” – Metal Zone

So, I guess what I’m saying is, it depends on who you are.

BLACK YO)))GA in Maura Magazine

In a recent article about BLACK YO)))GA from Maura Magazine, Jeremy D. Larson writes…

“The drop-tuned guitars and the glacial pace and the caterwauls weren’t just entering through my ears; they found new points of entry throughout my body. I felt a high; outside of collegiate experiments with psychedelics, I’d never felt that “one” with music before. Maybe that rush of feeling was from a “refusal to deny,” or that old gym mentality of pushing through the pain, or the rhythm of my breath actually starting to click; maybe it came from an image of me—cloaked, riding a dragon, and holding a flaming claymore aloft in honor of the Old Gods and New—flashing across my brain. The climax of the vinyasa timed perfectly with that of the music, forever twinning yoga and drone in my mind.”
