One of my favorite new prog metal bands as you all know is The Vicious Head Society from Ireland. I reviewed “Abject Tomorrow” a few months back and I really think more people need to hear this great album. Now the band, led by Graham Keane, will have a better opportunity for that to happen. Hostile Media have signed the band and are reissuing the album in December. Here’s the full press release.
Earlier this year The Vicious Head Society, the brainchild of Irish guitar virtuoso Graham Keane released his debut album Abject Tomorrow, which gained applause the world over. Featuring guests such as keyboardist Derek Sherinan of Alice Cooper, Billy Idol, Yngwie Malmsteen, Kiss, Steve Vai, and Joe Bonamassa fame, fellow Irishman and bass player Pat Byrne, and drum machine Kevin Talley Abject Tomorrow tickled the ears of progressive metal fans and those with a taste for all things guitar.
Today Keane can reveal he has teamed up with Hostile Media to reissue his acclaimed debut which will also include a bonus track, ‘Xylematic Disembowelment’. Keane comments, “When Hostile Media offered me a contract which guarantees huge amounts of cash, fame and at least two limousine rides in exchange for my earthly soul, it was a no brainer! In seriousness, I’m delighted to sign with HM, it presents me with a chance to reach more people with my music. To celebrate, I recorded an out take from the Abject sessions and we just about managed to squeeze it on to the CD. ‘Xylematic Disembowelment’ is a zappa inspired instrumental combined with death metal. I don’t think I need to say any more than that!”
