On Friday March 27th at The Ruins at The Colosseum, Providence metallers GAMOHRA will celebrate the release of thier debut, self-titled CD. MetalCage will be on the spot, blogging live reports from the show. Posting grainy, blurry low quality phone pics. I will be talking with the bands and fans and, of course, banging my head to some of the best local bands in the Providence area.

Gamohra will be ripping up the stage with other local powerhouse bands Deathwish, Murdoc, All For Blood, Apollos Resurrection and Necris.

This event is an 18+ show and will be $10 @ the door. There are NO presale tickets for this so show up early and support all the bands.

I spoke with Clay back in November about some of the CD details and lineup changes.
Here are some clips of the text conversation….

Rick Craige
Hailz,

I was wondering if the band wanted to make an update statement regarding the new upcoming release you’re working on ? I know you guys had Tanner in with you … that should be good!

Any ideas for the title or cover art ?

Nov 1, 2014

Clay Petschke
Umm, this is the cover art for the new CD and it will be self titled. The CD has 6 songs on it, including a brand new song featuring the new lineup and Tanner on it as guest vocals. It will be officially released in January. We have had a few set backs over 2014 that is why it took so long to get our CD together. Also we have not made an official statement yet but I will tell you, Our bassist Steve Brouliard is leaving the band due to things in his personal life, it sucks because he is my best friend, we have been close friends for over 20 years, but we already have a new bassist to replace him, Steves last show with us is our headlining show at Fete Lounge on November 14. Tim Cabral from Necris has stepped up to be our new bassist and he is still in Necris too. Tim is going to do double duty lol. The artwork was drawn by a dude named Krisna from the middle east. Neil had this art made. It is also our new T-shirt art also.

Man, too bad about Steve tho … he looks like he loves being part of the band too … Tims good tho .. he’ll make a good fill in …

Are you gonna be seeking out a permanent bassist or no ?

The art is wicked … love the flesh falling off the skulls … nice!

Clay Petschke
The CD has 4 songs with the new lineup and the two with our old lineup, all recorded at No Boundaries Studio in Providence and was mastered and produced by Chris Piquette.

Cool lol

Umm well for now Tim will be our man on Bass, he says he wants to be a part of Gamohra, at this present time we are not sure if Tim is permanent or if he is just filling in.

(….Justin Milano on second guitar and Doug Waite on drums….)
Justin and Doug are an awesome addition(s) to Gamohra. Justin is an excellent guitarist and Doug is the best drummer we have had.

We are pleased to announce the nominees for this year’s 7th Annual Limelight Magazine Music Awards. Like prior years, the nominating process was completely fan driven, with the exception of “Song of the Year” which was nominated by four radio DJs (Steve Scarpetti, John Shea, Lori Welch and Cat Wilson) who support the local music scene. In addition, the Legend and Unsung Hero awards were selected by the co-owners of Limelight and will be announced at a later date.

Over the past two weeks, we solicited nominations for each category. The top eight artists who received the most nominations were placed in them. Anyone who won an award in a specific category last year is ineligible to be nominated for that same award this year, unless it’s for new music being released (such as a song, album, or video). Public voting begins today and lasts until 11:59 PM on Friday…

We are about to release our fourth compilation featuring the amazingly diverse New England metal scene and we couldn’t be more excited and proud. With the first three albums we covered Metal/Rock/HardCore/Punk bands from RI, MA, and CT. This time we group the Northern New England States NH, VT, and ME.

This collection of songs will treat the listener with an incredible variety of talented musicians from all metal genres. From dark and brutal to quick and fierce the bands on Mountain Metal bring it all to the table. Feast your eyes on the tracklist and be prepared for the sonic assault.

I Guard The Throne has employed a very smart tactic and have released the Lyric Video for thier “Rituals Of A Dying Man”, a track that will be found in their upcoming Demo.

The selection is grinding and powerful, the song arraingement is bold and developed. Face melting riffs with hammering beats and Andrew unrelenting ” in your face ” vocal styling make this track extremely enjoyable. And the vid helps understand whats being said.

I Guard The Throne “Rituals Of A Dying Man” (official Lyric Video)
