DISCHORDIANS!!! Happy Holidays from Castle Dischordia! We hope 2012 was as good to you as it was to us. We've had quite the ride this year. We successfully completed our first multi-state tour, signed with Metalution Management, played some amazing shows (including the famous Whisky a Go-Go in LA), and began recording our first full-length album with the amazing Raymond Herrera and Jeremy Blaire. 2013 is looking to be even bigger as we look to finish our album and hit the road next summer. We hope you continue to follow our progress as we spread our world domination. Make sure and "Like" us on Facebook (facebook.com/dischordiaband) and "Follow" us on Twitter (twitter.com/dischordiaband) if you haven't yet. Catch our last show of the year on December 28th at The Chameleon Room in OKC. We appreciate all your support! \,,/ \,,/ -DISCHORDIA
What's up Dischordians?!
Hope your respective hoiday celebrations are going well. We are still trying to digest the splurge of turkey day last week. Before we continue, we'd like to personally thank all the great fans we've been introduced to in the recent months on the Facebook, Reverbnation, and especially the Twitters. It's been great hearing the awesome feedback and meeting so many great lovers of metal. You guys and gals rock! Now... So what's new? Well, let's begin with how we are featured on Sick Drummer Magazine's Brutal Beatings IV compilation! There are many great bands on this FREE compilation but the one we are most excited about is a little band, maybe you've heard of them, called DEATH!!!!!!!!! F*** YEAH! This is the first of hopefully many more compilations and projects for us to branch out with. Check out this brutal compilation at the link below:
We got another great review just in time for turkey day last week from ThoughtsOfMetal.com, a really cool metal review and interview site. Many thanks for the kind words and amazing hype! Check out the link below:
As we mentioned in our last blog, December is a big month for shows. We are VERY excited to be playing the 3rd annual Christmas Conection Benefit show at The Roxy this Friday December, 2rd in OKC. There are a ton of great bands showcasing the best of OK metal and, most importantly, it's for a great cause. All proceeds and donations go to deserving families for the holidays. We play promptly at 10:00pm on the main stage. Doors are at 8 and there is a $10 donation. BE THERE! December 10th marks our return to the Tulsa metal scene for Heavy Holidays (Heavy Metal X-Mas) at The Eclipse. We are stoked to finally be playing with our boys from Koma Therapy. Shout out to Eric from KT for hooking us up with this show. All the information for the show can be found here:
Finally, December 16th is the long awaited show at our most frequented venue, McSalty's, with an awesome band from Georgia called This Hideous Strength. Let's show these boys what Oklahoma metal is all about. We will be selling tickets for this show at the benefit concert this Friday. Here's the info:
We have some more reviews and interviews in the works, so keep an eye out for those in the coming month(s), including a spread in Underexposed Magazine (http://www.underexposedmagazine.com) and an interview with Pure Grain Audio (http://www.puregrainaudio.com). Before we go, we'd like to thank the best media consultant on the net, Eric Burnet at Ricburn Media for always taking such great care of us. Also, a special thank you to TurBo, host of TurBo's Metal Meltdown - the sickest metal show in Oklahoma! We've been getting a lot of spins recently and we couldn't be happier! TurBo will also be hosting the Heavy Holidays show in Tulsa on the 10th. Check out the meltdown here:

*DISCLAIMER: So I know we said that this would be a weekly blog. However, since we have altered "Tag Tuesday" on FB and "Follow Friday" on the Tweets to "Tag/Follow when we get around to it," our blog will be in the same vein. That's just how we roll.*
What's up DISCHORDIANS?????????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
We are stoked to announce that we have been sailing the seas of metal since our last blog update! We've had some AMAZING reviews from many metalsites and metalzines around the net. The biggest ones I'd like to mention are from WeLoveMetal.com, AlternativeMatter.net, and DeathMetalBaboon.com. Kind words from some guys share the almighty word of metal! Check them out for yourself here:
Many thanks to the reviewers at these sites and, of course, our boy Eric at Ricburn Media for getting us the further reviews and airplay in Canada, Greece, and Austria! DISCHORDIA IS GLOBAL!!!
Beyond the great press and album reviews we've had some great developments in the live front. Following the hype around our big CD release show last October we have planned a big month of metal in December. Starting on the 2nd you can catch us, along with the best Oklahoma metal has to offer, at the 3rd Annual Christmas Connection Charity show at the Roxy in OKC. There are way too many bands to name but I'm going to anyway because that's how good they are :) We are excited to see:
FRIDAY DEC. 2ND / LINE-UP AND TIME SLOTS DOORS AT 8:00 STILL BREATHING BARE KNUCKLE SHUFFLE MORBID CORRUPTOR DISCHORDIA ANGEL FLESH CHRONICLES OF MAYHEM DARK ARSENAL LEFT TO DIE
SATURDAY DEC. 3RD / LINE-UP AND TIME SLOTS DOORS AT 6:00 STARING INTO FIRE (side stage) KOMA THERAPY AGAINST THE DAMNED BROKEN FLESH A FATE FAR WORSE RITUAL BLUDGEONING EMPIRE DOWN ENFUNERATION LYCERGUS INDEED SIR SEVERED BY SIN DEADCORE
This is a two day extravaganza of metal with all the proceeds going to help the less fortunate this coming holiday season. Donations of household goods will also be taken at the door. Bring on the love and metal!
Following this amazing show we are FINALLY making our way back to Tulsa to go rock out with our boys in KOMA THERAPY on December 10th at the Eclipse! We've been itching to rock Tulsa again and hook up with KT.
Lastly, we are also having a 2-3 show stint with an amazing metal band out of Georgia called This Hideous Strength. Check them out on FB and at McSalty's PIzza on December 16th in OKC. We are really excited to tear it up with these strapping young lads.
If awesome reviews and amazing upcoming shows weren't enough. We also recorded an brand new instrumental song titled "There Are No Words..." for YOU, our loyal DISCHORDIANS! There's only one small catch. All you need to do is spread the word about your favorite progressive death metal band to the rest of the interwebs. Once we hit 500 Likes on FB we will release the song to you FOR FREE! That's right! Who doesn't love FREE METAL??!!! At last count we were sitting comfortably at 369...let's do this. We already released a teaser video of us recording the song on the tubes. You can find it here:
I was thinking about holding off on this until our next blog post but we can play everyone's favorite game, "just the tip," to see how it feels. Currently, we are balls deep in pre-production for our first music video!!! We look forward to making the video once we find the time between all the metal next month. How did it feel? You alright? Good, great grand!
In closing, remember: Music has an amazing healing and bonding power between people. Metal only intensifies it.
Until next time Dischordians...
P.S. Get those likes up!
