Going into the studio today with my friend CHRIS EMERY of AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE. Chris is going to lay the foundation on a dozen or so new tracks for BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING.

PROVO PROVENZANO (EVERYBODY PANIC!) who used to play with the band RIKETS and SKINLAB is here too overseeing tracking. We’re going to be tracking at BELL LABS RECORDING out here in the OKC Metro. One of the best studios in the area and probably the best studio for what I’m trying to accomplish with BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING.

Very excited to be working with some pretty talented guys on this new chapter of music! Should have pix and (hopefully) video soon! Super thanks to everyone so far on all the positive feedback!

MARAZENE Producer Launches BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING

December 6, 2012


CHICAGO, IL (DLSP) — MARAZENE producer, multi-instrumentalist, programmer, and vocalist DieTrich Thrall has launched a new Electro-Metal studio project, BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING. The full statement posted on http://www.beautyinthesuffering.com/ follows:

BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING is an evolving concept I came up with years ago that best described a sense of optimism during some bright spots of an otherwise massive struggle against overwhelming odds.

Music I have been writing and expressing over the last several years has been uniquely intimate in reflecting those struggles and I am very excited about putting out some fresh ideas that represent the here and now.

BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING deals with universal themes of love and loss, defeat and resolve, and struggle and triumph.

Everybody has moments where the road looks impossible to pass. But somehow, little by little we manage through our own inner strength and the purposeful placement of fate, chance, and karma. We emerge wiser and with a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our place in the world and the beauty we glean from the suffering we have endured can never be denied.

This is a journey I accepted long ago. I wear the scars of my personal triumph over my struggles with pride and I stand ready to face new challenges.

And, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, this is a new beginning. I thank you all for standing by my side during some very difficult years of active-inactivity. The future is wide open and full of nothing but payoff.”

DieTrich (pronounced Dee-Trick) is best known for his co-founding and co-visionary role in the industrial-metal band MARAZENE (later called MARAZENE MACHINE).

From managing the band during its most active and successful National touring years (2006-2008) with acts such as MUSHROOMHEAD, WEDNESDAY 13, DEADSTAR ASSEMBLY and PSYCLON NINE, to co-producing the bands critically hailed cover of MOTLEY CRUE‘s “LIVE WIRE” in 2011 as well as the bands lone official full length album (MachiNation, 2006), to writing fan favorite tracks such as “GIVE” (SkumF***erz), to guiding the bands philisophical and edgy lyrical approach (AnTiThesis, Infidel Society), to producing multiple videos for the band, DieTrich’s contributions and influence are heavily noted.

Chicago’s Electro-Metal MARAZENE MACHINE will cover MOTLEY CRUE‘s “LIVE WIRE” according to the bands Official website: www.MarazeneMachine.com.

The Machine-Metal mavens – currently in-studio – have also posted two new song titles; “WELCOME TO YOUR HOLIDAY” and “THE VERY SAD FATE OF MISS DESDEMONA ANTOINETTE MARCEAUX“, both of which are expected to be key tracks on an as yet untitled self-produced new release.

“The rust is burning off the gears as the machine heats up,” multi-instrumentalist and vocalist NIKK SKUM noted. “We’ve been spring-loaded for awhile now. Once this train leaves the station, it’s not stopping till the end of the line…”

The band will be re-teaming up with JEFF VEREB (SMASHING PUMPKINS) for the final mix. Vereb was the mix engineer behind the ‘MachiNation‘ album as well as the tracks that appeared on THE MATRIX REVOLUTIONS and RECALIBRATED box sets.

The principle songwriting tandem of producers DIETRICH THRALL and NIKK SKUM have largely kept a low profile since the tragic loss of co-founding member KRISTOPHER “KRISTOV” KEMP in early 2009 to a three year battle with colon cancer. In recent months however the members have been dropping hints as to demo progress while putting the finishing touches on the follow-up to 2007’s critically regarded ‘MachiNation’ album.

MARAZENE MACHINE won over industry insiders and fans Nationwide with their explosive, high-energy performances while touring the U.S. and Canada 100% DIY in 2006-2008 with such acts as MUSHROOMHEAD, THE HUMAN ABSTRACT, PSYCLON NINE, DEADSTAR ASSEMBLY, and WEDNESDAY 13.

Hold That Thought – ORGY Reunion Kaput..?

October 26, 2010

ORGY


Julien-K.com

Word of a possible ORGY reunion with the original lineup of the platimum selling CANDYASS first hit THRALL WORLD in the Spring. The latest as posted by AMIR DERAKH on the official Julien-K website:

“As of October 26, JAY GORDON will be leaving the original band ORGY.

We don’t know what this means for the future of ORGY, but we are assuming that Jay intends to release new music under the name ORGY. We don’t know if Jay has a new band waiting in the wings to replace us, or if he plans on doing it all on his own — but we do know that Jay is a talented writer, and we are sure that he will come up with something great.

Over the last few years we have tried to get the band together and tour or write new music — even though we are juggling multiple businesses as well as three original music projects (JULIEN-K, DEAD BY SUNRISE, and CIRCUIT FREQ), we have always been willing to make time for ORGY.

It saddens us that Jay is choosing to carry on the ORGY name without his brothers that helped build and create that name, but we truly wish him all the best.

Thank you all for your continued support on the many projects that we are all involved in, and for being our friends, family, and fans over the years.”

Will a return to the spotlight with the new album spell out a return to the big stage? Said DieTrich:

“Our fans have been with us the whole way with undying and unconditional support and we are incredibly happy to have them on board with us as we prepare to plunge over the edge and into the unknown for this next big ride..”

NINE INCH NAILS: ‘YEAR ZERO’ HBO Mini-Series Adapt Moving Forward

NINE INCH NAILS: 'YEAR ZERO' Album Cover


Source: LATimes.com

A little over two years since THRALL WORLD first heard about the development of an HBO backed series based on the NINE INCH NAILS ‘YEAR ZERO’ album.. Here’s the latest:

Trent Reznor says HBO and BBC Worldwide Productions are moving forward with the development of “Year Zero,” the grim sci-fi epic that Reznor has chronicled in his music as well as in a celebrated Alternate Reality Game (ARG).

“We are in [the development phase of] pre-production with HBO and BBC [Worldwide Productions] to do a miniseries,” Reznor said.

Reznor is working with the team of Lawrence Bender, best known for producing Quentin Tarantino films such as “Pulp Fiction,” “Inglourious Basterds” and ”Reservoir Dogs“ as well as the documentaries “An Inconvenient Truth” and “Countdown to Zero,” and Kevin Kelly Brown, who was executive producer on “Roswell.“

Read more HERE.

“Year Zero” takes place approximately 15 years in the future, with the U.S. a religious dictatorship and the world on the brink of environmental and social collapse. Reznor has indicated that he’d be interested in a film version of the story, and has also hinted at a recorded sequel at some point.

FREE Music Offers From ALTER BRIDGE And TRENT REZNOR

TRENT REZNOR

For a limited time, sign up and download a free copy of The Social Network sampler HERE.

Said TRENT REZNOR (NINE INCH NAILS, HOW TO DESTROY ANGELS) about his collaboration with ATTICUS ROSS (credited with programming and/or producing WITH TEETH, YEAR ZERO, GHOSTS I-IV and THE SLIP as well as the score for the movie THE BOOK OF ELI)

“This is what Atticus and I have been working on for the last few months. We had a great time working with David Fincher [SE7EN, THE GAME, FIGHT CLUB, THE CURIOUS CASE OF BENJAMIN BUTTON] on this and the film turned out excellent – something we’re very proud of. It opens in theatres Oct 1 and you should check it out.

Musically, this all came out of our secret laboratory – electronic in basis, but mostly organic sounding. Lots of experiments and emphasis on sound fraying around the edges while focusing on the proper emotional tone for the various scenes.”

ALTER BRIDGE

Also:

“Words Darker Than Their Wings”, a brand new song from the American rock band ALTER BRIDGE, is available for free download at this location (sign-up required). The track comes off the group’s third album, “AB III”, which will be released on October 8 via Roadrunner Records in all territories except North America.
