ORCHID Unveil New Video “Wizard Of War”

Wednesday, 24th April 2013

San Francisco’s own doom rockers ORCHID have released their video for “Wizard Of War” which may be seen below. The song comes off the band’s new album, The Mouths Of Madness, which will be released on this Friday through Nuclear Blast Records.

Guitarist Mark Thomas Baker talked about the album’s lengthy production process: “Most of the tracks on ‘The Mouths Of Madness’ were cut in early June 2012. We were pretty fresh off of our European tour and full of confidence. The basics done at that time were the best recording experience that we’ve had so far. Everybody got along great and did great work. We did this album with a completely different guitar sound than ‘Capricorn’. I think it sounds much heavier in that regard. We take a lot of time to get things right. I hope people enjoy it and let it sink in. I think it’s miles above our past efforts.”

Richard Whittaker, mastering engineer who also took care of the latest BLACK SABBATH and THIN LIZZY re-releases compares the new album to the likes of veterans PENTAGRAM and BLACK SABBATH: “The Mouths Of Madness’ is such a well-crafted and awe-inspiring album. Sonically, its 1974 meets 2013 which, for me, takes the SABBATH/PENTAGRAM vibe to whole new level.”

The album also received high regard from BEHEMOTH frontman, Adam “Nergal” Darski: “BLACK SABBATH should do an album like The Mouths Of Madness!”
