I haven't updated this thing in forever. Why? Because no one
seems to read it or care. That said, it's still showing in the
Last.FM page. Maybe I should just delete this from the Last.FM page
and move on.
I don't know why I'm posting this here, as no one's on
Myspace anymore, but here goes...Due to scheduling and
transportation issues, Erick and Kevin are leaving Lich King.
Erick’s got a band closer to...

Greetings, loyal Lich King fans within traveling distance of
the northeastern USA. We would like to schedule you for a
neckbreaking. We want to make sure you know what we're playing with
EXODUS on Aug...
It's past midnight, at least here on the east coast it is.
Savor the moment because your new favorite thrash metal album ever
was just released. Got a review, some impressions or thoughts? We
want to ...
While of course we have the preorder details and release date
for WORLD GONE DEAD coming up soon, in the meantime there are other
goodies. We'll be doing a radio show on Metal Messiah Radio on the
Well, we've been leading you guys on for a half a year now.
Here's the thing. Lately we've been saying World Gone Dead will be
released in March, and now it's looking more like April. Late
Here's the upside: it's going to be worth the wait.
The early builds of the new mixes we've been hearing are
unbelievable... I am NOT on production, so you're finally safe from
my horrible lack of mixing know-how. The drums are punchy and
organic, the sound is truer, everything is heavier. I want to wait
until we have the final mixes in-hand before we put these new
versions up on the myspace. At that point the hype machine will
really start cranking into gear.
Lich King Live
We've been doing the live shows for almost three months now
and have a lot of shows coming up. The next one, on the 26th of
March, is one we're very excited about: we're playing with our
contemporaries and inferiors WITCHAVEN, RAZORMAZE and HATCHET.
Anyone that's been following the new wave of thrash will tell you
that's kinda a big show, and anyone on the east coast will tell you
that a thrash show like this never happens. NEVER. This is a real
anomaly, so if you're in a five-state radius, make the drive to
catch this firestorm. We're planning to do a cover of a well-known
song you might want to wear your dancing shoes for.
If / when you see us, look out for the new song BEHAVER. It's
my opinion that this song is made for destroying live crowds. The
final 35 seconds are going to leave you gasping in a cloud of your
own powdered teeth. Behave yourselves.
We did an interview with DJ Shredder of Metal Assault Radio
recently. Tom, Brian and Kevin showed up and mostly just got very
silly. As of this writing it's not uploaded yet but keep checking
this link to hear it when it's up.
Fourth Album update
Wait, what? Yep. We've been working on new material for the
fourth album since December or so. We've got three songs in various
stages of progress, and a buttload of ideas for other songs.
The Thing We Can't Talk About Yet
We can't talk about that yet.
That's the plan. Problem is, we haven't done this before and
trying to work out the logistics is like untying a knot while
standing on top of a flagpole while meteors continually crush your
skull into atoms. Summer's looking good, but we'll see what
happens. A good thing would be if a more experienced band stepped
up into a package tour with us and handled the details like booking
and all that while we watch and learn. ...Hint hint.
HIYA FOLKS. Thanks for withstanding the frenzy of promotion
crap I've been doing recently. A number of circumstances have been
aligning recently, none of them negative but having irritating side
effects. In truth, Lich King's stock is shooting up right now and
luck has been with us. Big things are in the works and I know I've
been saying that for a while, but it's true.
So here's the bad news. World Gone Dead is getting delayed.
Last you'd heard, it was coming out in mid-November. Now, it's
looking like it'll be available in late January. There are two
reasons. Our label dude has a trip coming up and he realized he'd
only be able to process a few preorders before he has to leave for
about three months. That means you couldn't have received your
album until January without preordering anyway. The second reason
is that we've decided to rerecord the album- the entire thing,
minus solos and vocals (with luck) with the new,
permanent live band. I've ditched the studio musician dicks
whose arms can't stand up to heavy chugging. What with these guys
being serious thrashers and now being the live band, I thought I
might as well have them rerecord their parts for the album.
Apparently the drummer's got some recording space and production
knowledge and he can make it sound like it wasn't mixed by...
y'know... me. The end result is going to be tighter and I think
The above contains some of the good news. Here's more.
With the time we've got, now, we might just forge another
song for the album. I'm starting to think up concepts.
Lich King live shows, teased back in late august, have been
in the works since May. Not much has actually been done to further
these until recently, when I shifted focus from the halfhearted
studio guys Toxic Holocaust-style to this new group of guys.
They're practicing feverishly, they sound great, we think alike and
I no longer feel like the only member of the band. Apparently we're
going to be ready for shows in December. I'm booking stuff now and
hope to have some shows to announce soon. They'll mostly be in and
around this area as we stretch our legs.
We just need that bassist.
I'm officially feeling out another new wave band on whether
they'd be up for a tour. So far they've ignored my message. Let's
see how long they let that go before I start flinging poo.
If you play bass, like to thrash, can commute to the western
MA area and aren't a douchebag, east coast thrash titans Lich King
want to hear from you. You must have your own gear and be available
to tour and travel. Live experience would be a plus.
