AXEMASTER song from compilation posted

April 14th, 2013

The band just received permission from That’s Metal magazine to post Axemaster’s track which will appear on their compilation CD “Metallic Commandments – Volume 1″, you can now check the song out at http://www.reverbnation.com/axemasterofficial and http://www.facebook.com/axemasterofficial. Although many of you may have previously heard the version of the track (“Bed of Nails”) that was used briefly for promotion, it has since been partially re-recorded, totally re-mixed, and professionally mastered (the sound is now FAR superior to what it was). It’s also the first (and currently only) AXEMASTER song available that features Geoff McGraw on vocals, so we hope you will give it a listen!!!!!

AXEMASTER studio progress

January 18th, 2012
AXEMASTER is making good steady progress on the final writing and the recording/production of their new CD. Guitarist Joe Sims is producing the album and has done early mixes of the guitar and drums for 5 songs which so far sound 100% better than any of the band’s previous releases. The response from the few people who have listened to them has been outstanding. A contact of the band who writes for several European metal publications (including a major magazine) listened to a couple of the advance mixes and said this about one of the songs: “The riffing is so supreme! The main riff in the song is almost killing me. Fuck yes! And killer lead-fills too. The song has a mean drive to it and makes the listener headbang automatically. What a great song! I love it!!! I am so curious how it will sound with lyrics (although I could also live with a pure instrumental).”
Joe Sims said about the recording “this is the first release I have produced on my own and the result so far is much better than even I expected. I have been taking my time and paying attention to every small detail and it’s DEFINITELY paying off. This material is by far the best stuff I have ever done and the CD has to have the sound quality to match. So far so good, the sound’s there and the performances have been top notch!!!!”. Vocalist Tony Webster said “it’s been a crazy last few months. I spent a lot of time getting ready for 2012 with The Metal Command Radio Show which has taken a lot of time away from writing. However…so far the recordings are going well. Every week Joe comes up with better and better sounding mixes and recordings of the guitars and drums. I have now written parts for 5 songs and recorded my parts for 3 songs. I can tell you that this album is taking Axemaster and even my songwriting down a much darker lyrical path than ever before. So far the vocal parts are sounding killer. I am in full force writing mode for this new album”.
There is still a lot of work to be done in writing, recording, and production, so it will be a while before all the material is completed. But the progress thus far is proving that the high expectations that everyone associated with the band has had for the upcoming CD are slowly becoming reality!!!!

Re-mastered AXEMASTER now available

September 20th, 2011

Selected re-mastered songs from AXEMASTER’s catalog are now available through the band’s new ReverbNation page at www.reverbnation.com/axemasterofficial. Since being re-mastered the material now sounds much better than it did on any of the releases it previously appeared on, especially the songs from “Death Before Dishonor” and “5 Demons”. In all there are 16 songs available (one never before released) and the cost is only $0.75 per MP3.

Progress continues toward finishing the writing of the new AXEMASTER release. Every small detail is being taken into account in order to be sure that this CD will end up being as good as it can possibly be. This is an extremely important release and the band is treating it as such by taking the time to do everything properly. The final product will definitely reflect this.

AXEMASTER ANNOUNCES BASSIST THAT WILL APPEAR ON NEW CD

August 30th, 2011

The band is proud to announce that accomplished bassist Jim Curtis will be featured on the next Axemaster release. Jim was a member of the Inner Terror project in 2009-2010 and recently expressed interest in performing on the new CD. As Joe Sims put it:

“When I found out that Jim was interested in being on the CD it was a no-brainer. He’s an excellent player and is familiar with me and Brian’s writing and playing style, a perfect combination! He’s gonna add an extra dimension to the rhythm section and make the disc just that much better!”

Jim stated:

“I am honored and excited to be working with Joe, Brian and Tony in this newest version of Axemaster. I have known Brian for many years and met Joe 3 years ago when they asked me to be on the Inner Terror CD. The songwriting is strong and the riffs are brutal…nobody writes em like Joe…along with great drumming and now with Tony’s talents I am looking forward to a killer release from the legends that are AXEMASTER!”
