Hello everyone! The fifth and final track of the Organ Whore album has been updated! Torrential Eucharist is finally online.
The historic track is a personal story about the enlightenment the band achieved after realizing the intricacies of human existence in the universe. What is the meaning of life? What will life bring to all? Is there life after death? These themes are oozing out of Torrential Eucharist.
-The standard ceremony of breaking bread for each new album was done right before recording this track.
-There was danger that the roof of the recording studio would collapse due to the vibrations caused by the music- apparently MCMJ found the resonance of the building.
Finally, the U.S. release of Organ Whore is released. Soon, the Special Edition set (includes the Europe-only songs) will be online for your downloading pleasure. The songs for that part of the album will be put online in a much more frequent manner.
An exciting new addition to the MCMJ administrative group is here as well. Below is a post that was supposed to be done by the new hired writer, Wolfgang, but it seems that he has never used the internet before. I was given the “opportunity” of coaching him to call an internet provider in his area and getting connected. Great.
Anyway, here is what he wrote:
“When I first started writing, I never thought I would end up being some sort of commission-payed journalist, let alone one that writes for a band blog. Alas, here I am, tired and confused after a long trip to America, yet eager for the change of scenery. I can not say that I was thrilled at the initial prospect of the job when I talked to Marius online, though it was impossible to refuse once I met him in person. All of my previous trepidations faded when I was met with the steadfast conviction of such a dedicated artist. Marius appealed to me, not through his music, but through his overwhelming intensity. I would be lying if I said I am perfectly comfortable now, but I at least feel the potential flowing from the members of the band. It remains to be seen how everything will turn out, but I at least remain optimistic.
In terms of plans, I have many interviews planned that will take a more empathetic look a some of the members, hopefully revealing some of the intent behind MCMJ. The band comes across less as a group, and more of a musical collective. There is more to the music than what is heard, and I want the fans to understand that.
I have yet to meet everyone involved with the band, as I have only met the actual members. There are others, such as the PR manager, the general manager, and the cord producer, but my involvement is less intricately tied to them. I also heard of another writer involved on the website, but from only a brief read of some of the content submitted so far, I feel less than threatened. Perhaps now the content will become more worthy of consideration, an undeniably essential quality here, as the band continues their negotiations with the producer. I have been asked to be more included in production for speaking purposes, but I need some time to adjust to the change of scenery before I push myself over the edge.
Readers should look forward to more frequent updates as the blog really gets into full swing. I will be working on a graphical overhaul as well, and some more appropriate advertising. I may have yet to be fully immersed, but I am fully dedicated to the furthering of the MCMJ project.
There it is. The new writer for MCMJ. Seems like a nice guy on the phone, though distant. I will hold my reservations about him until I read more of his work.
The next update will have the long awaited interview with Marius!
