Our apologies on being so quiet on this site. We’ve been more active on our facebook and instagram and as usual neglected to update this over the past while.
Back in July we released a split with our good friends Deadgaard titled ‘Graveyard of the Gulf’ which you can listen or purchase here.
Thanks to all the fans and friends who have supported this split so far. We had a blast performing in Halifax, Moncton, Fredericton and St. John’s in support of this release and hope to do more shows with our pals in Deadgaard in the future.
As always you can visit our social media to keep most up to date on all things Orchid’s Curse.
We apologize for our website being quiet as of late, but rest assured we are still alive and well. In fact we have a few new songs recorded for an upcoming project we will be announcing in the, not too distant, future.
Want a taste? Check out this video by Metal Mouth Media of a recent show. Thoughts & Prayers (5:01) and Born of the Same Sun (6:45)
Hard to believe it has been a decade since we first plugged and started creating music under the name Orchid’s Curse. Yet over the course of the decade we are proud to have released 4 albums and despite a few member changes, we continued to push forward to strive to be one of east coast metal’s heavy weights.
In September 2006 we released ‘Goodbye Is When the Casket Closes’ and on September 16th, 2016 we will perform songs from it as well as all our albums for our 10 Year Anniversary Show.
Come celebrate with us and our pals in Black Moor and Heart Attack Kids!
