Massachusetts Thrashers Lich King are set to release a new EP entitled ‘Do-Over’ which comprises 5 re-recorded songs from the ‘Necomantic Maelstrom’ and ‘Toxic Zombie Onslaught’ albums. ‘Do-Over’ also features a cover version of Van Halen’s track ‘Hot For Teacher’ and a demo version of ‘Crossover Songs Are Too Damn Short’ which will appear on the band’s 5th full length album scheduled for a mid 2015 release. The EP will be released worldwide on 25th December 2014 via Evil EyE Records. We would like to give your publication the opportunity to preview & review the EP.
Lich King are architects of new ‘old-school’ thrash metal in the vein of EXODUS, VIO-LENCE, S.O.D and SLAYER amongst others. Drummer Brian Westbrook describes the bands unique proposition as follows: “We think the sound of thrash was perfected in the 80’s and we’re not trying to add anything to the mix. We’re just coming up with riffs and songs that the old masters didn’t.”
Lich King‘s frontman Tom Martin made the following educated statement regarding the new deal between Lich King and Evil EyE Records.
“So apparently we’re “signed” to some no-name label now.
Brian did it under my nose, despite my protestations. That’s just great.
We couldn’t be happier to be contractually shackled to Eviley or whatever for the forseeable future. Having some scheister on another continent in control of our future sounds like such a great way to lose a lot of money, and we’re really excited to begin the ‘but things wouldn’t always be so good’ part of our VH1 Behind The Music episode.
What the hell.”
The ‘Do-Over’ EP was produced and mixed by Lich King‘s drummer Brian Westbrook (PDP Recording: http://pdprecording.com), while the EP’s artwork was designed by Lich King‘s vocalist Tom Martin (Tom Martin Art & Design: http://www.undeadwizard.com/).
