About MaelstroM
Formed in the ferocious firestorm of the eighties thrash movement, MaelstroM began its
storm surge by quickly dominating their local scene of Long Island, New York. Within a
few years they expanded beyond regional borders and began to gain worldwide
notoriety. Unfortunately, like many bands of that era, MaelstroM fell victim to the
changing scene as harder metal gave way to Seattle grunge and the landscape of
heavy music shifted.
Not satisfied with the way things ended with MaelstroM’s legacy, vocalist and lyricist
Gary Vosganian and main song writer and guitarist Joey Lodes set out to finish the
vision they had left incomplete all those years ago. Finally, after multiple fits and
starts, hurdles and heartaches, the pair has realized their dream with the worldwide
release of their debut album 'Of Gods And Men'. A journey that began, humbly, as a few
kids in a basement, some 32 years ago.
'Of Gods and Men' is rooted in the sounds and themes of MaelstroM’s eponymous 1989
debut demo and 1991’s acclaimed, This Battle to Make History, Yet History Never
Comes. It represents a further step in the band’s evolution beyond their superlative
2008 EP It Was Predestined, which charted CMJ Top 20 as an independent and was
recognized on Terrorizer Magazine’s coveted annual ranking of “best unsigned bands”.
'Of Gods And Men' delivers a 69 minute album of such complexity and decades-intense
planning, that it can hardly be considered simply a collective of ten songs.
“There was always a very cinematic pageantry to what we were looking to do,”
continues Gary. “The idea was to create a cinematic vision, more than simply individual
songs. It is meant to be a whole piece, conceptual in all aspects and truly an album,
which we consider to be ‘an abandoned art’ these days”.
