MIND POWER RELEASES LYRIC VIDEO FOR ‘GROUNDED’

Earlier this year Mind Power released one of the heaviest records of 2021, aptly named Self Torture.

We’re stoked to work with the fine folks over at No Echo to bring you a brand new lyric video for the track “Grounded”.

Originally released as quarterly digital only releases by the band, the 11 tracks off of Self Torture read like a book that’s woven from those releases with a cathartic, brutally honest, and at times self deprecating voice.

Featuring vocals from ex-A Life Once Lost frontman Robert Meadows and a lineup that includes former members of Ligeia, Dead End Path, and Bring the HeatSelf Torture features guest appearances from notable metal standouts like Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan, Darkest Hour’s John Henry and Michael Schleibaum, The Red Chord’s Mike McKenzie, and Most Precious Blood’s Rob Fusco just to name a few. Remastered by heavy music heavyweight Alan Douches, Mind Power’s first physical release is as heavy and earnest as the vinyl is beautiful.

You can still grab a copy of the limited Red & Black Splatter vinyl as well as the Opaque White on our new Limited Run webstore and Bandcamp page.

DECIBEL MAGAZINE MIND POWER VIDEO PREMIERE

Happy release day to Mind Power!

To celebrate we’ve teamed up with the fine folks over at Decibel Magazine to premiere Mind Power’s brand new video for the track “Mess”.

In the midst of a pandemic Winter dive into the depth’s of Mind Power frontman Robert Meadows’ mind on a bleak journey through darkness and snow in an almost tortured existence beyond dealing with the daily reality of Covid. Written before the pandemic, “Mess” could have easily been a diatribe on the daily life we’ve all come to know all too well the past over the past year, yet here we are.

MIND POWER SELF TORTURE VINYL

Just a quick heads up that Mind Power’s Self Torture vinyl goes on sale tomorrow starting at 11AM!

This limited pressing of 300 is available on Translucent Red/Black Splatter and Solid White and comes in a beautiful gatefold jacket. Each purchase comes with an immediate digital download as well as unlimited streaming access to the record via the Bandcamp app.

Featuring vocals from ex-A Life Once Lost frontman Robert Meadows and a lineup that includes former members of Ligeia, Dead End Path, and Bring the Heat, Self Torture features guest appearances from notable metal standouts like Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan, Darkest Hour’s John Henry and Michael Schleibaum, The Red Chord’s Mike McKenzie, and Most Precious Blood’s Rob Fusco just to name a few.

Originally released as quarterly digital only releases by the band, the 11 tracks off of Self Torture read like a book that’s woven from those releases with a cathartic, brutally honest, and at times self deprecating voice.

MIND POWER TO RELEASE SELF TORTURE JAN 29TH

So, 2020 was one for the books, right?

We’re getting things sorted out over here to help ring in our 25th year, so we figured ‘Why not start things in a heavy groove?’

Without a doubt Mind Power is the heaviest band we’ve ever worked with, and it’ll be some time before we release an all out assault on your ears as thundering and groove heavy as Self Torture. Featuring vocals from ex-A Life Once Lost frontman Robert Meadows and a lineup that includes former members of Ligeia, Dead End Path, and Bring the Heat, do we even need to name drop guest appearances on Self Torture by Norma Jean’s Cory Brandan, Darkest Hour’s John Henry and Michael Schleibaum, The Red Chord’s Mike McKenzie, and Most Precious Blood’s Rob Fusco just to name a few? Wait, we just did.

Even without those guest appearances Mind Power’s effort on Self Torture is nothing short of brutal and exhausting.

The foundation for this release lies in the band’s prolific writing and recording throughout 2018 and 2019. Originally released as quarterly digital only releases, the 11 tracks off of Self Torture read like a book that’s woven from those releases with a cathartic, brutally honest, and at times self deprecating voice. Remastered by heavy music heavyweight Alan Douches, Mind Power’s first physical release has been given a while glove treatment by means of a limited Translucent Red/Black Splatter and White vinyl gatefold LP pressing. Originally slated for a 2020 release, we’re excited to finally get this out into the world. Vinyl ordering goes live next Friday, January 22nd, and digital drops on your favorite streaming service Friday, January 29th. Stay tuned for me details on that vinyl!
