DECEASED to reissue “Supernatural Addiction” through HELLS HEADBANGERS

October 30th, 2012

HELLS HEADBANGERS reissues DECEASED’s celebrated classic Supernatural Addiction on CD, with an LP version coming January 23rd. Featuring five bonus demo tracks and extensive liner notes from founding frontman King Fowley, DECEASED’s masterfully haunting Supernatural Addiction was originally released in 2000 on Relapse Records. Finding widespread acclaim upon its original release, Supernatural Addiction saw these underground legends expand upon the epic narratives of the preceding Fearless Undead Machines but put into punchier, more concise attacks without losing any of drumming vocalist King Fowley’s characteristically creepy storytelling. Less “death metal” and more deathly heavy metal, this DECEASED album cemented their staus as one of the most unique and recognizable metal bands since the turn of the ‘90s. Feed your Supernatural Addiction here.

Tracklisting for DECEASED’s Supernatural Addiction reissue on HELLS HEADBANGERS

1) The Premonition

2) Dark Chilling Heartbeat

3) A Very Familiar Stranger

4) Frozen Screams

5) The Doll With the Hideous Spirit

6) The Hanging Soldier

7) Chambers of the Waiting Blind

8) Elly’s Dementia

9) Dark Chilling Heartbeat (bonus demo track)

10) Frozen Screams (bonus demo track)

Deceased – King Fowley

February 22nd, 2012

Interview with King Fowley of Deceased

conducted by: Carlos M. Llanas

In their 26th season together, Deceased has stayed strong and consistent, and their brand of death/thrash metal is unlike any other.  The creepy riffs, haunting melodies, and their love for the strange and weird gives them the ability to write outstanding albums like "The Blueprints for Madness", "Fearless Undead Machines", and "Supernatural Addiction" just to name a few.  Their most recent studio attempt "Surreal Overdose" has received great reviews from us, Metal-Rules.com, and other great sources alike.  Songs like "Skin Crawling Progress", "kindred Assembly", and their single "Cloned (Day of the Robot)" make this album a must own.  I recently had the pleasure of speaking with Deceased frontman and personal friend King Fowley in San Antonio, Texas for the 5th annual Goregrowler’s Ball.  King is no stranger to Texas; he’s been here many times on tour with either Deceased, or his heavy metal band October 31.  Hell he even kicked my ass in soccer one of the last times he was here ( He is no joke people).  In this interview King talks about the next full-length album to be titled "Ghostly White", his love of horror movies, his band mates, and what is in-store for the future of Deceased.  Here he is for your thrashing pleasure….King Fowley.

DECEASED: Announce Track Listing for ‘Surreal Overdose’ (Preorders Available Now!)

May 10th, 2011
DECEASED have risen!

The long-running metal maestros have kept the faith since 1985, summoning a slew of cult releases and building up an immensely dedicated fanbase that has followed the band merrily into hell and back. Now, at the dawn of 2011, King Fowley and his band of ‘bangers have returned with Surreal Overdose, their first full-length of all-new material since 2005’s As The Weird Travel On. Armed with a May 13th release date, the album will be unleashed by the Northeast’s gnarliest, PATAC Records. Preorders for the album are currently up on the PATAC website: http://patac.bigcartel.com/product/deceased-surreal-overdose-cd

The band is also streaming two new songs – “Kindred Assembly” and “The Traumatic” – on their official website. Take a listen here: http://upthetombstones.net/news_2011.html#1

“Surreal Overdose” track listing:

01. Skin Crawling Progress (7:00)
02. Kindred Assembly (4:30)
03. The Traumatic (5:30)
04. Cloned (Day of the Robot) (5:40)
05. Vulture Shock (4:55)
06. In the Laboratory Of Joyous Gloom (6:55)
07. A Doom-Laden Aura (1:20)
08. Dying In Analog (7:50)

Ringleader King Fowley triumphantly returned to the drum kit for this recording, handling both drums and vocals. The band also welcomed in longtime live member Shane Fuegel on guitar (replacing long time band member Mark Adams who retired from music in 2007), while Mike Smith continued on studio guitar alongside longtime bassist Les Snyder.

The new record was recorded at Assembly Line Studios in Virginia with Kevin Gutierrez engineering and King Fowley producing. The CD will be handled in the states by the band’s own label, Shrieks from the Hearse Records, alongside PATAC Records. Hell’s Headbangers will handle the vinyl edition.


*The band is currently seeking live gigs and press opportunities. King Fowley is available for interviews and press copies of Surreal Overdose are available now; please contact Catharsis PR for all things dirty and Deceased.*

BAND INFO:

Deceased has attained a dedicated, though cult following throughout a lengthy recording and live career. Founded in 1984, by drummer and vocalist King Fowley, the first band to sign Relapse Records, they released four full albums through the label, along with a number of EPs, demos and re-releases of early demos. Leaving Relapse Records in 2003 to sign to Thrash Corner, the band continues to release material to this day. Their sound centers around the powerhouse drumming and horror lyrics barked, sometimes narrated vocals of Fowley, telling tales of zombies and classic works of horror from The Twilight Zone to the works of Edgar Allan Poe (“Dark Chilling Heartbeat” retells “The Tell-Tale Heart” on their Supernatural Addiction album), while the twin guitars often move quickly from riff to riff – the band’s songs typically work through several time signature and tempo changes. From their fairly primitive origins, while their core sound has always retained an almost punk/hardcore edge to its rawness, Deceased became more and more ambitious in terms of their use of melody in their progressive, lengthy thrash guitar workouts. This transition in their career was marked by the release of a full zombie concept LP, “Fearless Undead Machines”, with cover art by painter Wes Benscoter and spoken samples from George A. Romero’s “..of the Dead” films, as well as the band’s own attempts to stage classic horror monologue and storytelling. In 2005 the band signed with Thrash Corner Records and released ‘As the Weird Travel On’ which was accepted instantly in the underground as one of few old-school metal bands still putting out quality material. The band started their own label in 2008 called Shrieks from the Hearse Records. They re-released ‘Fearless Undead Machines’ as a 2 cd set soon after. 2009-10 saw the band on the road more then ever with lengthy tours both on the east and west coasts.
