IMMEDIATELY Help Dethtron on Kickstarter!

Hey all, so I usually don't do this, but when Dethtron & Chumby send me an email asking for help, never let it be said I don't heed the call!

Yes, this is the type of Crusader I picture.
Anyway, here's the email:

As many of you know, in addition to being dethtron (and sometimes anal_parsons_project), I am in a metal band called Crusader.  That's actually part of the reason I've been somewhat absent from the blog scene lately- although being employed again certainly hasn't helped out with my free time any too much.

I'm writing today to ask for a wee bit of support.  We're in the middle of recording a full length album, but doing so without the backing of a label.  This means we're self-financing the entire endeavor.  I'll spare you all the details, but suffice to say, this is phenomenally expensive. 

We are hoping to raise some of the additional capital we need to finish this project through Kickstarter, where we're pre-selling the album in several formats and offering other exclusive swag for our backers. 

By sharing the information I'm about to provide you on your own blogs, FB pages, twitter accounts, etc you would make me the happiest boy in the world. 

Just in case you're worried about this not having anything to do with gaming, I will offer you two things:

  1. While the name Crusader has many meanings to us, two of them are certainly related to tanks
  2. Here are the lyrics to "Thunderkill."  I think you may find some familiar subject matter.

Thunderkill
 
Can you see the force approach?
See the tempest in the sky?
The hour of reckoning now at hand
As loyal warriors they die.
The battlefield is scattered
With wounded, dying men
Blood spilling on the ashen ground
Finding solace in their death.
 
From the other realm he walks,
A war-hammer in his hands,
The earth it trembles under foot
On the blood-soaked war-torn lands.
Vengeance burning in his eyes,
As the heresy unfolds,
His anger tearing through the night
As battle lust takes hold…
 
Thunderkill!
 
Sons turned against their father,
And the Imperium of Man,
Siding with the Chaos Gods
The lost and the damned.
The clash of mighty beings
Is written upon the stars,
As he hammers forth his justice
                                          In the bloodiest of wars…
