Today we head into Desert Moon Studios. We are very excited to get this underway. It has been less than a year together, writing, playing live, and getting to know each other. We are joined by Pat Fontaine from XYZ to help co-produce this.
As we head into the studio we leave you with another song from our last show with Accept.
The band will be joined by Pat Fontaine of the band ‘XYZ’ co-producing along with Electric Messiah.
“We are excited to have Pat along for the ride with us. Pat is a brilliant Musician and Producer and has a keen ear for arrangement and song structure. We are so glad he has undertaken this journey with us.” ~ EM
The band has nine songs ready to introduce to the world. The songs are an eclectic mix of Hard Rock, Heavy Metal, Progressive Rock, and modern melodic themes and subject matter.
Electric Messiah will hit the studio on Monday Sept 22nd and work non-stop through October 2nd to finish tracking. Mixing will be done by Jason Constantine, and will take place at Jason’s own Constantine Studios.
“I love mixing in my own environment, but the songs need a bit more production than my place can handle. We chose Desert Moon Productions as the place to track the record due to the environment, gear selection, and the fact that I have worked there in the past. They have the most amazing Drum Room in all of Las Vegas. It’s big and spacious and allows for massive sounding drum recordings.” ~ Constantine.
Jason is hoping to have mixing done by the end of November, and the band is currently shooting for a January 2015 release.
“It’s been a crazy year for us as a band. So many big shows, and having the opportunity to share the stage with bands like Coldspell,Accept, Let It Rawk and others has been a blessing. Our fan base has gotten huge over the last year and we can’t wait for everyone to hear this record.” ~ EM

We will be opening for Accept which is quite an honor considering they are only doing four U.S. Shows before they take off on their world tour.
L.A. Weekly recently did an article called,
‘The Best Los Angeles Metal Shows to See in September’
‘This tour is a celebration of the origins of heavy metal. German metallers Accept are 30 years removed from their biggest commercial success, Balls To The Wall. Their new album Blind Rage shows that there is still some gold left in their mine, though original vocalist Udo Dirkschneider is still missed. Metal Church represents the mid-‘80s Bay Area thrash sound quite nicely, and you can expect British greats Raven to blast out killer speed metal like it’s 1982 again.’ – Jason Roche
What Jason didn’t mention is that Accept is now fronted by Heavy Metal great Mark Tornillo. You might remember Mark from the band T.T. Quick back in the day.
Doors open at 8:30pm
Tickets are $20 if you order your tickets before the show.

KISS Night III was an amazing success having raised thousands of dollars for musical instruments in the Clark County school system. Music has saved our lives, if we didn’t have music in the school system when we grew up we would never be here to inspire others. Let this tradition continue.
And a special shout out to Lisa Goulston, the Founder and President of the Image Foundation and the students themselves and their representatives that hopped up on stage and showed the world that music matters…. Bijou Bell on Drums, Natalie Robertson on Vocals and Guitar, and Max Lajon on Bass and backing vocals.
I’ve created this tutorial for anybody that would like to have an easy way to see what’s going on with Electric Messiah without having to type a whole lot. We were considering doing the $399 app thing when a friend of mine suggested a much simpler, and much cheaper approach. I’m not sure if this will work with an android seeing as I don’t have one but I’m guessing it will have the same effect.
Here is a list as well as a visual of how to do this fairly simple operation.
1. Open your Safari App on your phone.
2. Type www.electric-messiah.com in your browser window in Safari.
3. Once you’ve typed www.electric-messiah.com in the browser window, click on the icon that looks like a box with an arrow pointing up (in the illustration it is circled in red). This will bring up a window that gives you multiple options for Safari.
4. You’ll see a menu there and one of the items in the menu says Bookmark. Click that.
5. Once the bookmark has been added click Save.
6. Now that you’ve saved the Bookmark open the page again by clicking on the bookmark. If done properly it will bring you back to www.electric-messiah.com. Then click on the box with the up arrow like you did in step 3.
7. Click on the menu item that says Add to Home Screen.
