Steam Powered Stories

A while back, I told you all about the upcoming release of the Cog is Dead’s debut album but I had heard nothing with regards to when it would be available for purchase. I’m very happy to report that The Cog is Dead has finally released their debut album, Steam Powered Stories!

I’m very excited about this album. If you’d like to preview the album, take a look on their MySpace page and listen to a few of their tunes. I still really like “The Death of the Cog.” Their ballad “The Copper War” makes me think of American Steampunk which focuses on the old west (which is also this year’s SteamCon theme).   If you want to hear a little bit of each song, rather than the entirety of a few, you can visit Amazon and opt to preview all of the songs. This album is certainly more Steam than Punk, so please keep that in mind if you tend to prefer one sound over the other.

Steam Powered Stories is currently available on Amazon and CreateSpace for your purchase.

The Cog Is Dead

Ladies and gentlemen, allow me to present to you a new band I have recently discovered, The Cog Is Dead. This new band promises a new twist on the Steampunk music scene.

Below is a trailer announcing their soon to be released debut album, set for sometime this spring. Take a look at this message from Captain John Sprocket:

I honestly haven’t heard too much about this band, but the one song that is featured on their YouTube Channel “The Death of the Cog” is really very catchy.  I rather like it. You can take a listen here:

You can be sure that I will be watching the band with considerable interest, and that I will inform you, my dear readers, of any new developments regarding the band or the album’s release date. In the meantime, all the information one could possibly desire can be found on The Cog Is Dead’s website.
