UPDATE: MUTILATION RITES PRE-ORDERS/MERCH/TOUR DATES, BARGHEST/MANIA ADDED TO FEST, DISTRO UDPATE, DEAD WEIGHT NEWS

I don’t even know what’s going on right now. 2012 has been moving along quite quickly, and I can hardly recall what autumn and winter were like. Too much work, not enough time to absorb life and my surroundings. After the fest I’m aiming to take a long break from many aspects of life, but until then it’s full steam ahead!

I. MUTILATION RITES I AM LEGION 12″ PRE-ORDER AND TOUR
II. BARGHEST & MANIA ADDED TO THE GILEAD MUSIC FESTIVAL
III. NEW STORE ADDITIONS/DISTRO UPDATE
IV. DEAD WEIGHT PUBLIC PREMIERE & VARIANT DVD COVER

I. MUTILATION RITES I AM LEGION 12″ PRE-ORDER AND TOUR
It has been a long time coming, but well worth the wait. The filyh black metal offering by Mutilation Rites entitled I Am Legion is now available for pre-order. Jackets are done, test pressings have been approved, shirts have been printed. Order ’em up! Oh yeah, almost forgot to mention, you can listen to the entire record over at the Gilead online store, too!

I Am Legion is presented as a one-sided 12″ with b-side etching. Both the jacket artwork (printed w/metallic silver ink) and b-side etching were created by Reuben Sawyer of Rainbath Visual. Each of the three songs on I Am Legion are entirely re-worked and re-recorded versions of early Mutilation Rites demos, presented anew by the current lineup. The initial pressing is 500 copies. The 12″ includes an 11″x4.25″ black insert w/metallic silver print, screen printed patch, and 1.5″ Mutilation Rites logo button. You also have the option to order the record alongside a shirt featuring artwork from the back of the LP jacket, printed on Anvil ringspun garments with metallic silver ink.

The record is on sale now for $13.00 in the Gilead Media Online Store. Check out the photos below, and then drink it up!

IV. DEAD WEIGHT PUBLIC PREMIERE & VARIANT DVD COVER
Finally, we are beyond thrilled to finally announce the public premiere dates for DEAD WEIGHT, the feature-length film I’ve been working on with my pal John for two and a half years now. On March 30th and 31st we will be screening the film at the Time Community Theater in downtown Oshkosh. For info on tickets you can visit the brand new Dead Weight website at http://www.carryingdeadweight.com.

At the premiere you will also be able to pick up the double DVD release of the film! We reached out to comic artist Tony Moore (The Walking Dead, Fear Agent, Battle Pope, Venom, etc., etc. – Tony Moore’s website) to produce a variant cover for us. Minds = blown.

John and I reviewed disc two of the double DVD release on Sunday, he is making minor adjustments and authoring the DVD on Monday. Shipping Monday evening to the manufacturer, and then we wait. Can’t believe we made it, sometimes it feels like a dream.

That’s all for this week. Life has been nutty this year, in a good way. Thank you for your support!

Until next time,
