M-Theory Audio proudly presents "Pray For Armageddon" - the sophomore full-length album of US thrashers BLESSED CURSE. Six years after the Sacramento-based trio’s last recording, the "Beware Of The Night" EP, fans can expect more of their thrash with a deadly edge.
BLESSED CURSE recently extended their relationship with M-Theory Audio, although being a cornerstone artist of the label, with band members Derek Bean and Tyler Satterlee being friends with label founder Marco Barbieri going back 15 years. Marco handled their music publishing administration and shopped their demos for a record deal, landing the group one with European label Cyclone Empire. Since that label had no US partner Marco activated M-Theory Audio as a way for the band to sell a CD domestically, resulting in the self-titled debut album in 2012.
BLESSED CURSE is part of this century’s ushering in of a new generation raised on classic ‘80s thrash and metal. Tired and uninspired by nu music but having access to the Internet and a treasure trove of legacy, band members eventually formed outfits like Warbringer, Toxic Holocaust, Municipal Waste, Fueled By Fire, Bonded By Blood, Havok, Merciless Death, Hatchet and yes, BLESSED CURSE (initially known as Devastator) all began as young bands in the same time period influenced by past heroes and creating original music of their own. Releasing demos and playing shows up and down CA, BLESSED CURSE gained traction as part of this next wave leading to the eventual debut album release and follow-up US tour.
While band members have matured from reckless teens to functioning adults BLESSED CURSE continue to play live and stick to their ideals creating vicious thrash metal. This will be brought to the fore when "Pray For Armageddon" releases this autumn. The album was produced by the band and recorded, mixed and mastered by Joe Johnston at Sacramento’s Pus Cavern Studios (Will Haven, Silversun Pickups, Dance Gavin Dance) and once again features the cover art of Marc Sasso (Dio, Morbid Angel, Halford).
