We’re looking for a label to issue our debut album, Sounds Of Tyrants, our homage to the horrors – artisitc and real – of the 70s and 80s. The album features 10 tracks that go from synthy doom to 200bpm electro-thrash…
Most of the themes/lyrics for the songs come from horror books and films, along with a couple of more political tracks that bookend the album. The loose concept behind this is that no matter how you try and escape, there are real-life horrors all around.
The album is mixed and mastered – with a few tweaks to finish it. We’d be happy to work with you to make sure it meets the standards of your label.
If there are any artist profits from the release, we’d like to donate them to appropriate mental health charities – we can agree who together.
We’re also working with a graphic designer to create som 80’s style cartoon promos. Here’s an early sketch for one of the songs.
M.D.A.H. is collaboration conceived in early 2020 by John SEODAH (Sound Effects Of Death And Horror). It also features his little big brother Jim Hinder (ex-Onslaught – Killing Peace, In Search Of Sanity) on bass, Tommy Concrete (ex-The Exploited, solo) on guitar/vocals and John and Sophie (Hand Of Kalliach) on vocals. The collective is split between Edinburgh and the West Country.
M.D.A.H. combines electro-thrash and 70’s electronic film scores – influenced by Celtic Frost, Slayer, Goblin, Zombi, Antisect, Sigh and Japanese noise like Polysics and Melt-Banana – to name but a few.
More Death And Horror is the name of the second BBC horror sound effects albums from the seventies; the first one being Sound Effects Of Death And Horror…
M.D.A.H. lyrics and themes come from extreme cult cinema as well as classic horror books and films, underpinned by a healthy political cynicism.
