Stained Glass Torture to shatter peace with CD, partyWritten by Vicki L. Kroll | | firstname.lastname@example.org
Beware: Stained Glass Torture will release “The Abomination” and unleash a musical assault Jan. 13 at 7:30 p.m. at Club Bijou, 209 N. Superior St.
“Jan. 13 is the first evil day of the year,” said guitarist and singer Malice Dominious. “What better day for our CD release party?”
“We’ve been waiting a year to play a show. It’s killed us,” said bass player and singer R-Sin. “It’ll be a gigantic party.”
Tickets are $5 in advance and $7 at the door.
For the new disc, the metal band that formed in Monroe, Mich., heated up the music and hammered out “D.E.A.D.,” “Destruction Breeds Creation,” “Distorted Perception,” “Inner Awakening” and “Tribute to All Things Unwanted and Abandoned.” Malice, R-Sin and guitarist, keyboardist and singer Plague are fueled by anger.
“Anger is love. It’s passion. It’s every feeling that you have. It’s what you feel,” R-Sin said. “Honestly, we could write a song about being in love, but that’s not who we are.”
They are three guys who love the cinematic macabre.
“ ‘D.E.A.D.’ is the motion picture soundtrack behind our music,” Malice said. “You hear zombies and everything. It’s a tribute to the dead. We’re all big horror movie fans.”
“Malice and Plague took a bunch of samples from horror movies, and I sat down behind Pro Tools and stretched out a bunch of things to make them sound even creepier.”
The band invested in the Pro Tools studio to record “The Abomination.”
“We were learning as we went along,” Malice said. “The writing process took about three months, and the recording process took almost eight months.”
“The complete point was to have control of our music,” R-Sin added. “Music is supposed to be what you want and have no limits.”
“We hope people take whatever they wish to take from our music — it all depends on their perspective,” Malice said. “Music can be a way of life or just something to get you through life.”
“I want to inspire a person,” R-Sin said. “If someone has great, passionate sex or a fist fight, we just want to inspire.”
