Stillborn Records signs Thy Will Be Done
Official press release: Providence, Rhode Island based Thy Will Be Done has signed with Stillborn Records and is set to release their debut full-length "Was And Is To Come" on October 23, 2007. The release marks the first collaboration between the Providence outfit and Stillborn Records, and will be distributed nationally through Caroline Records/EMI. Completed in early-2007, "Was And Is To Come" features a guest vocal appearance by Jesse David Leach of Seemless, was produced, engineered and mixed by Zeuss (Hatebreed, Behemoth) with Jamey Jasta as executive producer. "Their approach and sound is raw, stripped-down, and straight up aggressive with a message that needs to be heard," commented Jasta on why he chose to work with Thy Will Be Done. Encompassing various facets of the metal spectrum, Was And Is To Come is marked with a plethora of core influences that range from vintage Sepultura and Carcass, to the southern rock sludgy vibe of Crowbar. For vocalist J Costa, the importance of being a metal act driven by musical integrity is clear. "So many bands are making albums filled with regurgitated riffs and obligatory breakdowns that it's become evermore difficult to distinguish one band from another. It's time for the next generation, a generation built upon ideals, ethics, integrity and passion, to breathe new life into the lungs of the culture. It's time for a generation to wipe the slate clean and take its rightful stance upon the original foundation." Throughout the years Thy Will Be Done has provided support for national acts such as the Misfits, Hatebreed, Killswitch Engage, Shadows Fall, and Converge. As the release draws near, Thy Will Be Done is set to hit the road and plans to spend the rest of this year and much of 2008 touring in support of "Was And Is To Come."
