I AM HERESY Ink Deal With Century Media RecordsWednesday, 4th December 2013
Delaware/New Jersey sextet I AM HERESY has inked a worldwide deal with Century Media Records. The band will release its second full-length album, Thy Will, on March 4, 2014 (one day earlier internationally). The album was engineered and produced by John Ferrara at Portrait Studios, who also helmed I AM HERESY’s O Day Star, Son Of Dawn EP. The new effort was mastered by Kevin Mattesky at Phantom Center Media.
I AM HERESY’s sound is an eruption channeling the passionate hardcore/punk fury of early BOYSETSFIRE streaking ferociously down the middle of the metallic-tinged prowess and influences of fellow hardcore giants INTEGRITY and CONVERGE. Imposing. Frenetic. Unrelenting. And certainly unrepentant.
After Nathan Gray (also of BOYSETSFIRE) ended THE CASTING OUT, the start of a new era was heralded when he teamed up with his son Simon Gray and a wild bunch of likeminded musicians to form I AM HERESY. They released a self-titled debut album that was followed by the O Day Star, Son Of Dawn EP shortly after in March of 2013. At about the same time, they did their first European tour as well as shows on the East Coast of the USA, including some with their new label mates of VATTNET VISKAR.
Says Gray about Thy Will: “A new ethos is born…Come ye daughters and sons of chaos and mystery! We intend to rebuild and create the archetypes of rebellion and revolution against self induced repression. Reveling in anthemic battle songs of lust, pride and indulgence in order to create a ritual purification from the stagnant impotence of servitude and self denial.”
