A Sound of Thunder Draw on Sabbath for Inspiration on ‘The Day I Die’
After getting tired of just playing other people’s songs in a cover band, guitarist Josh Schwartz and drummer Chris Haren formed A Sound of Thunder. After over a year of numerous line-up changes and false starts, in late 2009 the band was joined by Nina Osegueda, vocalist and co-founder of metal band Blood Corps.
After releasing a self-titled EP and recording West Memphis Three charity single ‘Justice At Last,’ the band unleashed their debut album, 2011’s ‘Metal Renaissance,’ to positive reviews. Never content to rest, A Sound of Thunder immediately began recording their second album, ‘Out of the Darkness,’ with producer Kevin “131” Gutierrez (Shinedown, Deceased) in May of last year.
Noisecreep is pleased to bring you the exclusive premiere of ‘The Day I Die,’ a cut off of the upcoming album.
“‘The Day I Die’ is a favorite of the whole band and really draws on our more Sabbath-y, classic metal influences. We like it fast and furious, but this song shows off our darker and more introspective side. It tells the tale of a scorned lover who takes the ultimate way out and tries to make contact from the other side,” A Sound of Thunder guitarist/keyboardist Josh Schwartz told Noisecreep about the blistering track.
A Sound of Thunder will be releasing ‘Out of the Darkness’ on March 27 via Nightmare Records.
