Run Thunders Run.

First we put in the gear.
Then we get in the van.
Then we go to the show.

Lighting the Lantern

Our first indie music video.
Follow the Thunders on a perilous adventure
through the looking glass of time.

The Road Shows

Bring a towel, clean water and a
month's supply of toilet paper. Wait... what?

Danger Dank

By | Band News | No Comments

Preproduction has begun on DANGER.DANK!

We’re excited to share a tiny glimpse of our spaced out web series coming the end of this year, based on Danger Dank, the lead song from our upcoming album.

We’ll be bulking up the subscriber access too, so thanks for getting here early we’ve got a lot of great stuff coming just for folks signed up at the HTTP://WWW.THUNDERSOFWRATH.COM. Yee haw!.

Update on the codebase, we’re getting a lot of the bugs worked out and adding in content layers. A lot of stuff doesn’t work, so if you’re here, you’re early, but thanks for being a tester!

You might also be wondering what all this nonsense is about. We don’t know. Seriously.  We’re a rock band in the 21st century and that makes for uncertain territory, and this adventure is just beginning. We’re building this site as a lens, a radar dish… a reflector for a bunch of kooky ideas as we explore what it means to make the music and take the music to the streets in strange new times.

What we do know is while there are many ancient tales yet to unravel, that which was shall never be again. We can not “bring it back”. But we can peel back the onion. Conduct our own living experiments. Apply the notions of heavy, deep, psychedelic, far-out, groove, space, thunder… to the now.  And then… load it into a van and bring it to your town.

There is no record label. There is no plan. It might get weird.

Lighting the Lantern Turns 1000

Thunders of Wrath’s indie music video “Lighting the Lantern” hit 1000 YouTube views today! Thank you all for watching and please share with your friends! We’re super busy making our first full length album, but there’s also new videos and some other sweet surprises on the way. Subscribe for free and let’s do this all together now. :)

 

Music and the Mind

Particle based temporal extractions manifest as aural perceptions.

You’re still looking? Me too. I wonder what’s down here.

 

We said, OK, let’s Rock.

Guitars, fast cars and riches beyond imagination. Plus… we’re on the internet now. It’s a lock!!!

A Quest Began

With a lifetime of adventure ahead, and many ancient secrets to unlock, this road may have started at one lonely junior-high bus stop. Could fruity snacks have played a role?

Loaded With Power.

Each chord has been carefully selected for it’s both it’s raw gumption and loving, caring caress; while individual notes target perceptual accupoints and release forgotten sensual energies.

Musical Videos for Entertaining.

Home made music videos? Thunders of Wrath says YES. We’re going to make a lot of little films. Not a lot of sense, but let’s see where this goes.

Certified Suitable for Both Live and Recorded Enjoyment

Thunders of Wrath bangs your head and blows your mind. No? Ok how about where headphones and headbangs collide? Shit that’s even worse. Headbangs? Sounds like we’re going to SuperCuts. Who thought this one was a good idea. Let’s put something else here.

Let Freedom Ring.

Driving from town to town, throwing down, picking up and doing it all over again. It’s a tough job but someone’s got to do it. This is not true. We love doing this. Nevertheless, donate today to keep the Thunders free.

When the Earth was formed we came upon It; and found that gravity was indeed a thing.

"You have to fight, for your right, to party."

"Hallowed be thy name."

HeadZone Phone

These six tracks are from our 2013 home-studio sessions “the Grand Alliance”, which we self-released as an EP near the end of 2013. They are also pre-cursor recordings to the “big” record we’re making now; these six songs will be featured in their new, high fidelity, gig-hardened forms as well as six new songs… which you can hear us perform now at a shows or even sometimes on the YouTube!

FAST FORWARD > > > It’s August 2014 and we’re about a two thirds done and we’re very excited. We hope you will be too, and in the meantime, please listen, share, like and (ahem) even buy these six wonderful rock groove compositions below. And of course… subscribe to the site for all the news. :)
