BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING, the newly launched electro-metal studio project from producer DieTrich Thrall (MARAZENE), have released the lyric video for their debut single “The Crazies (The Zombie Song)” – the ultimate zombie apocalypse party/rally as told from the perspective of the zombies. The track originally premiered on FEARnet and is available for download now at the bands Bandcamp page.

Two years in the making, “The Crazies” (The Zombie Song) marks the first new material released by DieTrich since MARAZENE’s 2011’s critically hailed cover of MOTLEY CRUE’s “Live Wire.” and subsequent final single “Welcome to your Holiday.”
Tracking for BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING, who plan to release their initial releases backed with full production zombie videos, is being done at Pirated Sounds Studios and Bell Labs Recording in Oklahoma City with SKINLAB guitarist Provo Provenzano (RIKETS) handling engineering.
“BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING is one of the most exciting projects I’ve worked on lately,” Provenzano commented. “DieTrich is insanely precise in the studio and has a great vision for where his songs need to be and the DIY ability and attitude to get it done right. DieTrich has also brought in some amazing studio musicians to help round out a unique and catchy collection of gritty and electronic based songs. I can’t wait to get them out there for the world to here!”
Using a unique DIY studio approach to songwriting which includes writing, programming, arranging, performing every instrument (except live drums, which are first programmed before bringing in a live drummer), and vocalizing, Dietrich’s fulfills the creative roles most bands use a full lineup to accomplish; which also draws immediate comparisons to such artists as Trent Reznor (NINE INCH NAILS) and Klayton (CELLDWELLER) who use a similar studio approach.
Members of TRAPT, American Head Charge, DOPE, Team Cybergeist, The Genitorturers, Rikets, Skinlab, Nocturne, The Razorblade Dolls, and Anti-Mortem are special guests in various studio and visual roles under the direction of DieTrich as he puts into place a multi-media experience introducing the band’s initial songs with original artwork, multiple full production zombie videos, and a self-titled short zombie film.
“Very few indie bands ever attempt the scope of a project such as this, which makes BEAUTY IN THE SUFFERING one of the most exciting new bands to keep an eye out for,” said Yvonne Loveland of Voodoo Queen Management.
DieTrich is best known for his co-founding and co-visionary role in the industrial-metal band MARAZENE (later called MARAZENE MACHINE). From managing the band during its most active and successful national touring years (2006-2008), to co-producing the band’s critically hailed cover of MÖTLEY CRÜE’s “Live Wire” in 2011 as well as the band’s lone official full-length album (“MachiNation”, 2006), to writing fan-favorite tracks such as “Give,” to guiding the band’s philosophical and edgy lyrical approach (“AnTiThesis,” “Infidel Society”), and producing multiple videos for the band, DieTrich’s contributions and influence are heavily noted.
