Exclusive BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING Performance Featured In New Horror Film, CLOWN MOTEL
BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING producer and bassist for legacy fetish/industrial act Lords Of Acid DieTrich Thrall has taken his horror approach in his bands music videos to the next step, co-producing a key scene in the newly released Clown Motel: Spirits Arise.
Released on June 4th, 2019 in the United States and set for a drop date of July 29th, 2019 in the UK, “Clown Motel: Spirit's Arise" features Ari Lehman (the original Jason Voorhees from 1980 Friday the 13th), Tony Moran (the original Michael Myers from the 1978 Halloween), Martin Klebba (Pirates of the Caribbean), and Chalet Brannan (Cyborg X, Crepitus).
Clown Motel follows a group of ghost hunters, coming from an old ghost town and a bachelorette party, returning home from Las Vegas. When the groups meet up, by mistake, they're left to discover if the motel is really abandoned and haunted by the souls, of the clowns, that once lived there.
An exclusive performance by Beauty In The Suffering of the song "REVEILLE" which features producer DieTrich Thrall and drummer Galen Wailing, both of the legacy industrial/fetish act Lords Of Acid, takes place during a key scene.
Writer and director Joseph Kelly weighed in on the collaboration, “DieTrich and his band brought our Las Vegas party scene from Clown Motel to life with a blistering rendition of their song ‘REVEILLE!’ Awesome energy!”
Executive Producer and Film Editor David W Bailey also chimed in, “DieTrich brought fire to the set of Clown Motel with his scorching song ‘Reveille’ that left the cast and crew speechless!”
Executive producer and co-star Don Schell, who plays the part of Chris in the film commented, “Beauty In The Suffering have already amassed a solid fan base with their initial zombie/horror themed music videos produced by mastermind DieTrich Thrall so it only made sense to have him bring his twisted talents to ‘Clown Motel!’”
Guest drummer Galen Wailing: “Having previously worked with Dietrich Thrall in Lords of Acid, I got the pleasure of working with him on his solo project Beauty in the Suffering. Always professional and a great guy to work with!”
DieTrich is currently on tour in Europe with death metallers TAIPAN. Taipan is touring in support of the album Straight From The Underground which features members of Megadeth, Static X, Ministry, and Xandria.

Artist & producer DieTrich (pronounced "Dee - Trick") Thrall is known for his extensive international touring with industrial legacy band LORDS OF ACID and MISFITS guitar legend DOYLE WOLFGANG VON FRANKENSTEIN's solo project DOYLE. He was also a primary creative contributor to underground Marazene, who scored a hit - and the approval of rock legends NIKKI SIXX and TOMMY LEE - with their extreme cover of Motley Crüe's “Live Wire.”
“For their first outing as a new band, Thrall and team decided to adopt a horror motif, beginning with the track ‘The Crazies (The Zombie Song),’ which is no doubt influenced by the horror classics of George A. Romero – not just the film of the same name, but his beloved Dead saga as well.
‘The Crazies’ is the first of three zombie-themed songs to be incorporated into a long-form music video conceived by Thrall (which is currently in production), and you'll be hearing more about [the] project soon." - Gregory Burkart (FEARnet.com)
"Beauty In The Suffering is an evolving concept I came up with years ago that best described a sense of optimism during some bright spots of an otherwise massive struggle against overwhelming odds.
Music I have been writing and expressing over the last several years has been uniquely intimate in reflecting those struggles and I am very excited about putting out some fresh ideas that represent the here and now.
Beauty In The Suffering deals with universal themes of love and loss, defeat and resolve, and struggle and triumph.
Everybody has moments where the road looks impossible to pass. But somehow, little by little we manage through our own inner strength and the purposeful placement of fate, chance, and karma. We emerge wiser and with a deeper understanding of ourselves and of our place in the world and - The Beauty We Glean From The Suffering We Have Endured Can NEVER Be Denied..
This is a journey I accepted long ago. I wear the scars of my personal triumph over my struggles with pride and I stand ready to face new challenges.
And, like the phoenix rising from the ashes, this is a new beginning. I thank you all for standing by my side during some very difficult years of active-inactivity. The future is wide open and full of nothing but payoff." ~DieTrich Thrall 11.18.12

A SPLIT-SECOND headline at GENTSE FEESTEN (Walter De Buckplein) on Sunday July 21st
Sometimes a band has to be patient...
Since their founding (1985) A SPLIT-SECOND has made a blitz career all over the world and soon, although somehow reluctant, they found themselves at the cradle of a music genre with the release of their undergroud club hit "Flesh" (1987). A song that would place Belgian electronic music on the map of global electronic dance music, namely New Beat!
This year however, after many successful releases and numerous performances around the world, the band has finally been invited to play at one of the largest (FREE) city festivals GENTSE FEESTEN in their own home Ghent!
A Split-second will perform as headliner on the main stage on Walter De Buckplein and this even on the Belgian National celebration Day, Sunday 21 July!

Soms moet een band wat geduld hebben... Sinds hun oprichting (1985) maakte de band een blitzcarrière over de gehele wereld en stond ze al snel, hoewel niet echt bewust en gewild, zelfs aan de wieg van een muziekgenre met hun undergroud-clubhit 'Flesh' (1987). Een song en genre dat de Belgische electronisch muziek op de kaart zou plaatsen van de wereldwijde elektronische dance-muziek, namelijk New Beat!
Dit jaar, na vele sucesvolle releases en talloze optredens over de hele wereld, werd de band uitgenodigd om te spelen op één van de grootste (GRATIS) stadsfestival van hun eigen bakermat, Gent!
A Split-second zal er optreden als headliner op het hoofdpodium op het Walter De Buckplein en dit nogwel op de Belgische Nationale feestdag, zondag 21 juli!

Chicago's One-Woman Electro-Industrial Act I YA TOYAH Releases 'FLASHBACK (Rhys Fulber Remix)' Video
Chicago's one-woman electro-industrial army, I YA TOYAH is very proud to announce the new video release for "Flashback (Rhys Fulber Remix)."
Check the video out HERE:
"FLASHBACK" was remixed by Rhys Fulber (Front Line Assembly, Delerium) and the music video was filmed by Lumbra Records. Original mix appears on I YA TOYAH's full-length album CODE BLUE.
"FLASHBACK (Rhys Fulber Remix)" is available digitally NOW on all major outlets and can be heard on SPOTIFY.
Rhys Fulber called this version of Flashback "a sadness on the dancefloor." "I envisioned Berlin at 4 am," he said. With the visual magic created by Lumbra Records, the viewer is teleported to Chicago reality-city lights, rush of life, and...mental alienation. The video was filmed in the middle of a cold April night. Various locations include Michigan Avenue, Bucktown, Lincoln Park and more.
I YA TOYAH landed here to spread the disease of music and infect the human race. She is a one woman army that blends the chaos and balance with familiar vibe of industrial electronica sound. Her music is a fusion of smooth, cutting edge vocals, surreal guitars, hypnotizing beats and multiple electronic synth elements arising into dark arrangements that, combined with storytelling lyrics, respond to the paranoia of everyday reality.
