The second full length record from New England's premiere extreme metal band Sorrowseed, Nemesis Engine tells the tale of the Lich Queen and her unending desire to conquer humanity and, thusly, the world at large. With an arsenal of undead creatures and weapons at her disposal, nothing will stand between her and her ultimate destiny.
Morte McAdaver would like to thank the following:
My mother (Natalie Raymond), my wives and lovers, my fellow musicians who put up with me, Death, D&D, the bands with whom we’ve played, and all the people who actually stuck around to hear us play and/or gave us your hard-earned money. Most of all, I would like to extend my sincerest thanks to anyone currently enjoying this album. It is a privilege to bring this necrotic, musical miscreation to your ears.
Lilith Astaroth Thanks the following:
Everyone I’ve already thanked in the first album (if you don’t see your name here and don’t have the first album, get it.) My bandmates and brothers. Alfred, the very best minion a supervillain could ever want. My family and friends (my rather large extended family..) My Reiki family. My MASSCANN family. My latex family. My metal brothers and sisters. New and amazing people who have entered my life since The Extinction Prophecies: Steve, Eric, Joe/Vocal, Justin Marcotte, The Harts, Aaron Lotus, James Dattolo.
Special Thanks to Michael Malta, “KOP” - the King of Pot - for being a life-changing influence on me. May you rest well in Paradise.
Prometheus B. Subrick would like to thank the following:
As with any artistic creation, it’s difficult to thank everyone that had a hand in getting you this far, so here’s the shortlist: Thank you to Josh Carrig, without whom I would not be in music, Lilith Astaroth, Rob Broderick, Shadow Khayoss, Thomas Cyranowski, our live crew of Eric and Pooch, Clay Neely, Doyle and JT from Dethlehem for being such big supporters of both us as a whole and myself, all the awesome drummers I’ve met and contacted through Derek Roddy’s various online endeavors (including Derek himself), and lastly my metal buds Brannen, Cole Jacobsen, and Michael Arcane. It’s been a pleasure servicing your ears in such a depraved manner.
Eric Pellegrini, Chris Adamcek, Aleigha and Ron Evens, Stake Airbrushing, Vengeance Designs, MyKill Vittoria, Justin Sane, Dave Choquette, Kev Cool, Clay Neely, Dan Malloy, and all of the many bands we’ve worked and played with. We also want to thank everyone for the ongoing support we have received across the globe.
