Orationem "Fulfiller, Sustainer, Preserving Protector"

Post by ThomasEversole on Fri Oct 23, 2015 11:20 am

So, I was just a little bit bummed regarding the awesome job I got hired for, and got thrown under the bus by the recruiter there about my background.
Deep in prayer Wednesday, I felt God telling me to finish the next Orationem album.

I had the drums done labor day weekend (recorded in one day). I sat down with a guitar and all these riffs just started coming to me.
I've never written music AND lyrics AND recorded an completed album in a total of 3 days before. Especially an album that's 7 tracks and over 48 minutes in length.

I wouldn't have thought that would have been possible, but I feel like I was just the instrument for His music and message.
...and obviously, through Christ, anything is possible.
___________________________

Anyway, here's a lyric video for the first track. (the entire song)



This next video features 2 minutes of each song. The title track (also the name of the album) really surprised me.
Its a really doomy track, reminding me a lot of the "Scepter of Blood" song I did in 99.



↑ The content of the video actually stops at 14 minutes. Don't know why its listing as 21 minutes?
No sense in watching / listening past 14 minutes - its just a black screen.

November 2015 is when I start selling these / making CDs.
Like the debut self titled, this album will also be $7.

Are there any questions?
I hope you enjoy the work I've put in the last few days!

Awesome!  I can't listen now at work, but you can definitely count me in on purchasing a copy once it's released!  I love your first Orationem album.

Thomas I woke up on early on Saturday (like a doofus) and I'm checking out the new stuff and it's fantastic. To think this was done in 3 days... God definitely inspired you.

In preparation for the new album, I've been cranking the s/t album in my car stereo. I'm getting extra pumped for this new one!

Question

I went into more detail about that on this thread.

The short version is,

I've got a felony battery on my record 10 years ago. One of the many reasons I stopped drinking, grew up and turned my focus back to God.
I was open with the recruiter about my background months ago, she assured me it wouldn't be an issue because the company only looks back 7 years.
Turns out, the company looks back 12 years and denied working with me because of my criminal record.
When I asked the recruiter about it not being an issue, she denied even talking to me about it. (some CYA on her part)

Yeah.

Thank you!
Happy November everyone!

You can order the new "Fulfiller, Sustainer, Preserving Protector" now from orationem.com - or through the link in my sig.
Orders will ship starting Monday!

If you live outside the US, please consider picking up the release from No Sleep Till Megiddo Records who's based in Germany.
I sent out their stock in the middle of last week and I'm sure they'll have it soon.

I'm sure it will save you (and me) in shipping cost!

Heya, Brother Thomas!

I plan on promoting one of the new tracks on The Master's Metal Episode 230 (December 10, 2015).  That is the next Brutal show to feature the 2013-2015 releases.  That gives me some time to save up the coin to make the purchase, anyway.  Very Happy

God bless and keep you!  Oh...and...I am praying for you, as always, brother.  Smile

Thank you David. I appreciate that.

A special pressing of the Orationem album is available at No Sleep Till Megiddo Records in Germany.
http://nosleeptillmegiddo.storenvy.com/products/15089106-orationem-fulfiller-sustainer-preserving-protector

A good option to pick up the release if ordering through the US is ordering overseas for you.

I'd also like to mention, that if anyone wants this album for their radio show, I'd be more than happy to provide the album at no cost. Smile

Sweet!  Thanks bro.
Vision of God Records will soon have new copies of the album as well.

I was contacted by Against Magazine who requested to be Orationem's publicist.  They had a few different options - a 12 week campaign was overkill, but they offered to design and send a press release to 1,300+ media contacts for 15EUR.  

I looked at who's done it before - the only Christian metal band on the list I recognized was Tourniquet.

Why not.  If its a scam, then at least it cost me less than $17.  If its legit and 3 or more sales come from it, then it was worth the investment.

Found a really awesome review of the Orationem "Fuliller, Sustainer, Preserving Protector" album.
Awesome because:
- I didn't send any copies off for review. Must be from a customer I had.
- Its a secular review blog. They found "religious" black metal to be "unorthodox", but that did not negatively impact the review.
- Lots of description in what they liked about the music

I kind of wish there was a scale-score, but in a way, I'm kind of glad there isn't.

Finally got the website updated to include the "Fulfiller, Sustainer, Preserving Protector" shirts that are made to order.
A lot of shirt sites just photoshop the design over a shirt template... but considering how good the shirt looks, it was well worth using an actual picture of this product. (click the image to see a larger version if you'd like)
