World Of Lies 2013


Back when we were working on the Thorns EP 2007 we recorded a double cover song. We had the original singer of the covers lay down the vocals on this track. We sat on this track until now… it sounds too good to not be heard…. Remixed 10/1/2011.

Accused Melody 2 Accused Cover Songs in one. (Featuring Blaine Cook: The Accused, Toe Tag, The Fartz & Denial Fiend)

Due to mutiple reasons World Of Lies breaks up.


WORLD OF LIES Completes Work On New Split CD with Toe Tag 5/3/2009


Toe Tag World Of Lies Split CD. Toe Tag's 1st offering on CD featuring Blaine, Alex Maggotbrain and Steve O'Ring from The Accused! 6 new songs from World Of Lies.

The split is in hand. Time to spread the disease!



We have been on vacation for a while. it's has been a nice ride, but like all rides they all must come to a end.The split will be out in a couple of weeks!!!



We have been busy putting the final touches on the split with Toe Tag. The audio is finished, now its just a matter of finishing up the art and turning over the project to A20 Records. The art is being done by KC Angel. We have some new shirts in stock as well. If you feel like putting on some new WOL threads then go to the shirts page and start clicking!

We have also been busy writing new material for a new album. The new tracks are turning out to be quite heavy, we started writing the death metal portions 1st and they are coming along very nicely.



We are currently operating as a 3 piece. It's working out pretty well, we have been getting lots of compliments lately on our live performances. We are just about to wrap up the new split CD we are doing with Toe Tag. We have the recordings all done, the mixing and mastering are still being tweeked slightly while we are waiting on the artwork to be completed. The art work is being done by Mr. Chris Angel, he has done lots of great work in the past for The Accused and does really good tattoos as well. Once the artwork is in hand the layout and art for the split will get started and proofed out to both bands, once we have an approval from both we will mail it to the guys at A2O Records in Germany to have it pressed up. We are going to press it on vinyl as well... be on the look out for more information on this release!!!



World Of Lies has a new bassist to announce, Ned will be taking the position after Leon West's departure. World Of Lies has a new guitarist and on board and is currently writing and recording for the upcoming split with Toe Tag. The new material is a real good mix of Grindcore, Punk and Thrash. World Of Lies will post some of this new material on our site soon so keep an eye out for it.



After finishing up recording and releasing the "Thorns EP" World Of Lies suffered 2 band member departures. The band and the departing members (David Henderson & Leon Wojack-West) are on good terms where they will remain. However World Of Lies has a new guitarist to announce.Jake Neely is our new guitar player.

Up next for band will be to record the new material for the Toe Tag split due out early 2008. After that the band is going to record a brand new album and a 2nd album of the 1st two WOL releases as a 2nd bonus disk. Rather than repressing the 1st 2 CD's we think it will be better to record them, give them a fresh recording and add them on to the new release as a 2nd bonus disk.



The last 6 months has been pretty eventful for World Of Lies, we got a song on the Nunslaughter Tribute CD, we put out our own single (Thorns EP) on CD and Vinyl and had 2 of the 4 guys leave the band.

The search for a bass player is still on, we thought we had someone but it didn't work out. We are also sad to announce that David (our lead guitar player for 2.5 years) is leaving the band. We are glad we got to get his sick guitar playing on the Thorns EP and wish him the best down the road.

All the extra tracking is done now, should be wrapping this project up in the next week or 2 and sending it off to the press.

Lots of work for us after this is done, bringing back some oldies but goodies, writing and learning some new ones we put aside when getting this together. Then the next release, keep your eye out for this single, don't expect to be hanging on to them for long, this is some of the best stuff we have done to date and with the extra vocalists, it really adds something we have never really heard before and are very proud of.
