SAINT VITUS Stream Unreleased Track

Heavy/Doom metal progenitors SAINT VITUS are streaming one of the bonus tracks from their forthcoming reissue of ‘C.O.D.’ The bonus track, titled “The Chameleon” is streaming now at Pitchfork.

Regarding the unreleased track, guitarist Dave Chandler said,

“I sent our U.S. label (at the time ) the tracks “The Chameleon” and “To Breed A Soldier” that I wrote with Christian (Linderson). The label did not like the direction the album was going and that really pissed us off. I scrapped everything I was working on and told Christian that things were not working out, so he left and went back home to Sweden.

The two bonus songs on the reissue weren’t actually  written for the C.O.D. Both were written after C.O.D. was released, and were  intended to be demo tracks for the next SAINT VITUS album. As they were the only other recordings from the era with Christian,  we decided to put them out on the C.O.D. re-issue.”

The re-issues of ‘COD’ and ‘Die Healing’ will be available on CD, limited-edition double LP, and colored vinyl gatefold LPs. ‘Remastered and enhanced with two previously unreleased bonus tracks, ‘C.O.D.’ features COUNT RAVEN’s Christian Linderson on vocals, while ‘Die Healing’ see’s original SAINT VITUS singer Scott Reagers return to the mic. All formats can be pre-ordered here.

SAINT VITUS recently streamed two songs off ‘Die Healing’ and ‘C.O.D.” The tracks, “One Mind” and “Children of Doom” can be found here.

SAINT VITUS previously released ‘Lillie: F-65‘. The album, their first in 17 years, reunites the unmistakable guitar playing of co-founder Dave Chandler with the deeply resonate vocals of hard rock legend Scott “Wino” Weinrich. ‘Lillie: F-65’ is streaming at the official SAINT VITUS Bandcamp page.

Updated SAINT VITUS news and tour information will be made available at the Season of Mist website and the SAINT VITUS website, Facebook, and Myspace pages.

“the boys are on fire here, flush with renewed energy and basking in the glow of their newfound power” – Pitchfork

“This sick behemoth of a sound – and patented strangled-cat guitar solos – could only come from one band, and that’s a window into why Lillie: F-65 succeeds as a whole: the Saint Vitus Character remains intact, never fucked-up with modern contrivances. Doubtful that Sabbath’s own 2012 comeback will be even a faction this good” -Decibel

“it’s clear that their chops have only increased in the intervening years, and they certainly haven’t lost their ability to bring dynamics to a slothful subgenre” – Outburn

“Vitus shows the enduring significance of their approach, and that what proved true about them in their initial run is no less true now: By not being of their era, they were and remain timeless. Saint Vitus are more relevant now than they’ve ever been, and Lillie: F-65 shows a good deal of why. No doubt one of 2012’s landmark albums. Highly recommended” – The Obeslisk
