THEOCRACY ‘Mirror Of Souls’ Vinyl Edition Announced

Artist: 
Categories: 
 
Ulterium Records are proud to announce the release of a limited vinyl edition of the classic THEOCRACY album "Mirror of Souls". The vinyl edition is strictly limited to 500 copies worldwide (350 copies with black discs and 150 copies with transparent discs) and the release date is set to November 23rd.
 
Matt Smith comments on the release:
"I can't believe it has been 10 years since the release of Mirror of Souls! I remember wondering if anyone would still care, since it had been so long since our first album...but thankfully, you guys did. It was a time of rapid-fire changes: adding band members, learning new recording techniques, and wondering if this crazy idea I had for a 23-minute song would actually work on record like it did in my head. Thank you for giving the album the life it has to this day, and for making those songs enduring standards that we still play at almost every Theocracy show. Cheers, and we hope you enjoy this vinyl release!"

THEOCRACY - Ghost Ship (Showcase)

Artist: 
Friday, October 28, 2016
Ghost Ship
Produced By: 
Matt Smith
Release Date: 
2016
Released: 
Worldwide
Genre: 
Melodic Metal
Categories: 

The Athens, Georgia-based melodic metal band THEOCRACY will release their new album "Ghost Ship" on October 28th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records. Information on different editions and formats will be announced soon.
 
With Ghost Ship, Theocracy perfects the lively and fully-realized sound of As the World Bleeds, delivering 10 muscular and streamlined tracks that never lose focus and combine for one memorable journey. You like midtempo singalong anthems? Try the “Ghost Ship” title track. Thrashy rhythms and intensity?  “The Wonder of It All” should be to your liking. Emotional ballads with huge melodic hooks? Go “Around the World and Back.”  Or if you prefer epic, progressive tracks that do all these things and more, 10-minute album closer “Easter” is sure to be a favorite. Each song on Ghost Ship stands alone and has a unique signature, but every moment sounds unmistakably like Theocracy.
 
“So many kids were coming up to us after shows and telling us their stories,” says Theocracy vocalist Matt Smith. “A lot of them were searching for purpose and a place to fit in, and having grown up as an awkward and unpopular kid myself, their words really stuck with me. I started thinking about what a band of misfits Jesus’ disciples were:  fishermen, tax collectors, and people of little consequence in the eyes of the world. Sometimes the ones most people don’t see, or choose to look straight through the ghosts of society, as it were, dead to the world end up having the biggest impact. That’s where the title and idea for Ghost Ship came from: all the misfits, the uncool, the outcasts, there is a place where you do fit in. Although Ghost Ship is not a concept album, this is a recurring theme, particularly in the title track and ‘Castaway.’”
