The Choir E-News Update

Dear friends,

Eleven more feathers are in the river. That is to say, our new album, Burning Like the Midnight Sun, has been recorded, mixed, mastered and delivered (along with the cover art) to that mysterious entity called “the manufacturer.” I’m told (and I believe!) it will be available to you, our devoted listeners, on June 28. It’s been 5 years since O How the Mighty Have Fallen. Thanks for waiting around the bend! (Admittedly, this “river” metaphor feels a bit contrived; but now that I’ve got no more lyrics to write… Well, it’s hard to dam the flow.)

Tim played the bass with unrivaled melodious fury. Buckeye Dan Michaels (from Akron Ohio) played lyricon and sax (best since Chase the Kangaroo if not EVER). Marc rendered his distinctive ambient, trippy-slidy guitar beauty. Derri’s vocals have rarely been more emotive – and his guitar work – magical! And as if it’s not outrageous enough that I’m offering my own rave review of our own album before it’s even “out”… I’ll risk going even further by asserting what will soon be undeniable – The drum tracks are smokin’!

Seriously, we’re just thrilled to “still be at it” after all these years. Thanks for riding the current with us. (Ah! Get a grip on that analogy compulsion, Steve!)

And thanks for listening.

Love and Death and Resurrection

After an eight year hiatus, Love and Death return with 'Perfectly Preserved,' an eclectic and personal release for nu-metal icon and frontman Brian 'Head' Welch. Still at the heart of it all, the man with the dreads details his life in the spotlight after returning to Korn, the launch of a holistic recovery center, and his spearheading of an autobiographical documentary. As fresh as he's ever been at 50 years old, he's still got more to give.

Marching Onward

After being together for a quarter of a century, they've been called Illuminati, fundamentalists, and even fascists. Now, with their first new album in seven years, 'Marching Out of Babylon,' they're honed in more than ever, a steadfast and evolved version of themselves. Andrew Voigt digs a little deeper into the Swedish band's roots, uncovers the narratives on the new release, and finds out how a little playground spat brought the band together.
