BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING Announce Release Date For “THE CRAZIES,” Album Artwork, Track Details

CHICAGO, IL (DLSP) — BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING, the newly launched electro-metal studio project from producer Dietrich Thrall (MARAZENE), will release the bands debut single, “THE CRAZIES,” on November 5, 2013.

Two years in the making, “THE CRAZIES” (The Zombie Song) marks the first new material released by DieTrich since MARAZENE‘s 2011’s critically hailed cover of MOTLEY CRUE‘s “LIVE WIRE.” and subsequent final single “WELCOME TO YOUR HOLIDAY.”

After spending the majority of 2012 locked away in his personal studio writing, arranging, and programming 40+ songs, DieTrich emerged for several minutes to announce his new project only to dive back into a 15 hour marathon studio session with drummer CHRIS EMERY of AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE. Other announced studio special guests include AARON “MONTY” MONTGOMERY (TRAPT), ANGEL BARTOLOTTA (DOPE, TEAM CYBERGEIST), CHRIS TELKES (NOCTURNE, THE RAZORBLADE DOLLS), and PROVO PROVENZANO (SKINLAB, RIKETS).

Provo has also been the engineering force behind the project. Said Provo: “BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING is one of the most exciting projects I’ve worked on lately. DieTrich is insanely precise in the studio and has a great vision for where his songs need to be and the diy ability and attitude to get it done right. DieTrich has also brought in some amazing studio musicians to help round out a unique and catchy collection of gritty and electronic based tunes. I can’t wait to get these songs out for the world to hear!

BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING are currently editing multiple full production videos for “THE CRAZIES” (The Zombie Song) as well as 2 other tracks, “REVEILLE” and “JULIET” that the band plans to drop in the coming weeks. Release dates for the songs and the videos are forthcoming.

BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING Begin Filming Multiple Videos For Initial Releases, Special Guests, Details


CHICAGO, IL (DLSP) — BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING, the newly launched electro-metal studio project from producer Dietrich Thrall (MARAZENE), have shifted gears and have begun filming multiple videos to support their initial digial releases set to drop this fall.

A video for the bands debut single “THE CRAZIES” was filmed this past weekend on September 21st in the Oklahoma City, OK metropolitan and the first still from the zombie-themed video can be seen below.

While “The Crazies” studio recording features ANGEL BARTOLOTTA (DOPE, TEAM CYBERGEIST) on drums and CHRIS TELKES (NOCTURNE, THE RAZORBLADE DOLLS) on guitar as guest musicians, drummer CHRIS EMERY of AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE and guitarist PROVO PROVENZANO (SKINLAB, RIKETS, EVERYBODY PANIC!) are featured in the video.

Band performance footage was also previously filmed in August at VOODOO LOUNGE located in the Oklahoma City, OK metropolitan area for “REVEILLE” and “JULIET“. Special guests on the pair of videos includes drummer LEVI DICKERSON and bassist COREY HENDERSON of NUCLEAR BLAST recording artists ANTI-MORTEM.

More stills have been posted at the bands official website: http://www.BeautyInTheSuffering.com

Release dates for all three videos are expected in the coming weeks.

“Been very busy in Thrall World putting together a bunch of performance footage for three BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING videos for all of our initial releases. Have some very talented cats on board for this and canNOT wait to get them out to everyone! The videos will all tie in together with a zombie themed narrative we will be filming in October.’

BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING lineup:

DIETRICH THRALL – vocals (MARAZENE)
CHRIS EMERY – drums (AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE) ***
PROVO PROVENZANO – Guitar (SKINLAB, RIKETS, EVERYBODY PANIC!)
LEVI DICKERSON – drums (ANTI-MORTEM) +++
COREY HENDERSON – bass (ANTI-MORTEM) ^^^
CORY FORD – guitar
JUSTIN HOGAN – bass ###

*** drums on THE CRAZIES
+++ drums on REVEILLE and JULIET
^^^ bass on REVEILLE and JULIET
### bass on THE CRAZIES

The initial 3 songs as a whole will encompass music, videos, a short film, original artwork, and eventually a book which will further highlight DieTrich’s multi-media approach and vision as an artist.

“Very few people ever attempt the scope of a project such as this,” commented GABE WILKINSON of COMA Music Magazine, “which makes BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING one of the most exciting new bands to keep an eye out for.”

Dietrich 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), to co-producing the band’s critically hailed cover of MÖTLEY CRÜE‘s “Live Wire” in 2011 as well as the band’s lone official full-length album (“MachiNation“, 2006), to writing fan-favorite tracks such as “Give”, to guiding the band’s philosophical and edgy lyrical approach (“AnTiThesis”, “Infidel Society”), to producing multiple videos for the band, Dietrich’s contributions and influence are heavily noted.

Hello to everyone. Quick update here on what’s been happening..

Had my friend CHRIS EMERY (AMERICAN HEAD CHARGE) to lay down some drums. Managed to get 7 of the 14 BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING songs we were aiming for. Very pleased we got that far. Was a pretty crazy session overall in terms of how many tracks we were shooting for. We just dove right in and got as many as we could before our ears threw in the towel.

PROVO PROVENZANO (EVERYBODY PANIC!, RIKETS, SKINLAB) was ace behind the board!

The picture is from about 10 hours into the 15 hour session. More pictures in the days ahead.

Very happy with everything overall. Can’t wait to get started on the rest of the tracking! Thanks as always for your support!

BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING: Studio Update For 12.09.12

December 9, 2012

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!

The Fate Of RIKETS: SCOTT ROSE Explains The Bands Final Days

September 17, 2010

RIKETS


Source: HollywoodMusicMagazine.com

THRALL WORLD understands all too well the difficulties involved with managing an independent band. The balancing act between the creation of music and business are not as easy and not nearly as “Rock out with your cock out!!” as many might believe.

And then there’s the concept of the DIY artist. Unless you’re the Almighty yourself the term DIY can be an unrecognized form of masochism.

To that end, lots of rumors out there about the fate of RIKETS who after releasing a new album only months ago are now declared officially “dead” by the last remaining original member of the band SCOTT ROSE.

In a new interview with HOLLYWOOD MUSIC Mr. Rose explains the events over the past week and explains why things went the way they did. A quick excerpt from the interview:

“I disbanded it. I killed it. It lives no more. I am officially saying that Rikets is on permanent hiatus. Everyone that was in the live band has now been quote-unquote fired.”

Also:

“I have had numerous guitar players, numerous drummers, this was a project that was started by me and me only and seven years into it I’m not going to let the new kids act like they are running the show. They make decisions that are not the best the decisions for the long term career of the brand name. So the band from now on is on permanent hiatus. There is nobody left in Rikets. Rikets is dead.”

Health reasons on the part of Rose, problems with the tours in support of the new album, problems with BURNHILL UNION RECORDS – the bands label, and a band mutiny which was beginning to take place in the final days when Rose decided to bail out on the band in the middle of their latest tour all ultimately contributed to the bands demise according to Rose.

Read the entire interview HERE.
