Revenge of Captain Pyrite on CD

Captain Pyrite is the most infamous, violent, and charismatic buccaneer of the past, present, and future. The mythology surrounding his nefarious lives, deaths, and resurrections springs from the collaborating minds of many talented musicians, songwriters, and artists. Captain Pyrite was originally conceived by two brothers, C-HAWK and the Emperor John~Morgan, as a one-time performance. Since then, the Chicago-based band has picked up momentum, contributors, and blossomed into the current rock and roll art show that it has become. The brothers gathered a crew of musicians and recorded their first self-produced album the Legends of Captain Pyrite. They embarked on a voyage of terror touring the United States from coast to coast. They made sure wherever they performed, people would remember the name Captain Pyrite! After the success of the first album and subsequent tour, C-HAWK and the Emperor assembled a new crew of talented musicians, including the stunning vocal talents of Joe Booe and Sarah Nielsen, the thunderous drums of Gordon Rinda, and the nimble fingers of Scott Bond on lead guitar. Together, the band released their 2nd album, the Revenge of Captain Pyrite. The band is a collection of diverse musicians and musical styles having unified to create a musical soundscape of rock. Everyone in the band writes and contributes; there are no free rides on Pyrite's ship. Utilizing multiple singers both male and female, each album can be described as a soundtrack to the latest Hollywood summer blockbuster. Captain Pyrite is a band that enjoys pushing the boundaries of hard rock, stretching from techno, to punk, to pop. The band's seafaring background serves as perfect inspiration for the common theme in the group's music. In fact, the nautical inspiration lead to the creation of a fictitious character named Captain Pyrite, who adds to the myth of the band while providing a vehicle to cross over into multi-media. There are plans for Captain Pyrite comics, books, games, and a movie. The goal of Captain Pyrite is to merge technology and the arts with music, as the universal glue to bind it all together. Not just a band, Captain Pyrite is a living, breathing, evolving merger of technology, art, sculpture, storytelling, and music. The Revenge of Captain Pyrite is an enhanced CD containing special features such as band biographies, interactive music, pirate trivia, Captain Pyrite cast biographies, choose your own pirate adventure, drag and drop puzzles, and behind the scenes movies. The Revenge of Captain Pyrite also includes a bonus DVD-R containing two featurettes, the Making of the Revenge of Captain Pyrite and a parody episode of Cribs.
