San Francisco-based doom rockers, ORCHID, established their reputation early with 2009’s release of their first EP, “Through The Devil’s Doorway”. The EP quickly received first-rate reviews around the world naming it an ingenious debut for a band with an auspicious future. Shortly after the release of “Through The Devil’s Doorway”, ORCHID began working on their full length album, “Capricorn”, which was released in 2011 by a small indie label. The record immediately gained the band a huge following in Europe. The quartet around charismatic lead singer Theo Mindell and his fascinating, psychedelic vocals were the new darlings of the retro heavy rock scene. Enter 2012 the band had gained so much interest all around the globe, it was obvious the next steps would have to be taken. ORCHID did so by signing with Nuclear Blast and unleashed another release entitled “Heretic”. The 10” EP contained three brand-new songs as well as the already known “He Who Walks Alone”, taken from the “Capricorn” album.
As a tasty appetizer for their upcoming second full-length record “The Mouths Of Madness” – both as far as the eye-candy cover artwork and the songs are concerned – ORCHID will release the “Wizard Of War” EP on February 22. The 10” vinyl’s title track acts as a foretaste of the forthcoming new record and will be accompanied by the rare song “Demon’s Eye” and “Albatross”, a track from the band’s debut. Let the “Wizard Of War” EP warm you up for the great things to come!
