TIMŌRĀTUS Slam You With Mediocre Metal

By in News | 4 Comments

TIMŌRĀTUS have gone in a new direction. Taking their unique metal sound, adding in a heavy dose of sarcasm and FUN, then hitting you over the head with a heavy dose of mediocre rock n’ roll. Why do I keep saying that? Well their new comedic metal album is titled, “My Life in a Mediocre Metal Band” and hits the streets on July 29th. You can preorder this great collection of METAL songs right here. It’s like hearing Extol join forces with The Locust, Devil Wears Prada, Faith No More, Bloody Sunday, and Weird Al all on one album.

The new album releases on July 29th and it’s a comedy metal album titled, My Life in a Mediocre Metal Band. The whole release is a comedic “inside look” at the struggles, joys and fun of being in a ‘mediocre’ metal band.

In total there are 7 songs and 3 interlude/skits that take a look at a different aspect of life in a metal band. From what it takes to have the best live show, to life on the road touring, to working day jobs to keep the band afloat.

Each member has their own identity and color such as, David “The Party” (orange), Courtney “The Style” (purple), Logan “The Redneck” (green), Mason “The Kid” (red), and finally “The Mystery” (blue). The joke for the bassist being that they can never find a consistent live bassist so it’s a rotating “mystery” on who the identity really is.

For the album, all the instrumentation and mixing was done by David Napier with the lyrics by both David and Courtney. The song Creative Control was instrumentally done by Eero Tertsunen of Renascent, The Slave Eye, and The Unworthy. Guest guitar solo in Day Jobs was done by Peter Watson of Elephant Watchtower.

The cover art was done by Garrett McGill as an homage to The Incredible Worlds of Wally McDoogle books by Bill Myers.

Hey Phil! The meaning of TIMŌRĀTUS is God fearing and devout. I know it seems weird seeing that in a comedy metal album appose to the previous releases that we’ve had that were all very straight forward in religious tone. The new record (My Life in a Mediocre Metal Band) isn’t a Christian album specifically, but it is something I think no one in the Christian scene would object to. There is not much humor in the Christian metal scene if I’m honest. This is an attempt to bring some in :)

Thanx 4 da info, but i think a buncha metalcor+ hxc bands post 1995 wud disagree, lol. Ther wer plenty of “tounge in cheek”+ ridiculously long song names bak then. Tho as far as traditional metal, u mite b rite.

Oh, I totally agree with the hardcore and metalcore bands in the mid to late 90’s. I was just talking about traditional metal. That and this album is genres all over the place.
