A Band of Orcs’ New Album Now Available for Pre-Order

Dear Readers, how are you on this lovely Monday afternoon??

Haha, I’m just kidding. Of course there’s no such thing as a lovely Monday afternoon, unless by some chance you happen to accidentally sleep through the entire day.

But I do have a little bit of good news to share with you … Adding Heads to the Pile, the debut full-length album by A Band of Orcs, will be released in exactly thirty days — on Halloween, fittingly — and starting right now, you can pre-order it to make sure you are one of the first to get your hands on the album! (Also to make extra sure the orcs are going to spare you during their forthcoming world domination — they obviously aren’t going to warn you in advance when it’s coming, so you’d better not take any chances!)

Now Hear This: New A Band of Orcs Song Now Streaming!

Well, I feel like I’ve just had my head repeatedly bludgeoned, between an enormous hammer and and an even enormous-er anvil.

And I’m about to go back and do it again.

If that sounds appealing to you, too, then feel free to join me… head on over to Hails and Horns, where they are streaming the first single off A Band of Orcs‘ upcoming album Adding Heads to the Pile, “In the Keeper’s Chamber”!

They’ve also collected quite a bit of information on that page about the story of the band and of their soon-to-be-released concept album, so be sure to check that out while you’re there!

“In the Keeper’s Chamber” is due to be released on Saturday (30 June) as a downloadable single, in advance of the album’s August release (via Itchy Metal). If the rest of the songs are as brutal and punishing as this one, then I’ll definitely be counting down the days until then!

As of right now, the album is expected to come out on CD and digital download, but (as you may recall) the orcs are also taking pre-orders for an incredible 2xLP picture-disc vinyl package (through Kickstarter) — click here for the full details on that, and hurry up if you’re interested, because there’s less than a week remaining for them to achieve their target amount to be able to afford to get the records manufactured! (FYI, a free download of this song is just one of the many glorious rewards that await you for your contributions…)
