Dark World International announces the release of Deemed Psychotic's holiday CD, 'Toy Man'

Bantry, Co. Cork, Ireland - 7 November 2013 - Dark World International hard rock band Deemed Psychotic have digitally released 'Toy Man', a special holiday CD, on iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Amazon, 7Digital, Deezer and many other digital retailers. This unique Christmas release featuring the Toy Man saga, is not only a fantastic and witty take on some brand new holiday songs, it's a great listen.

Right from the start, it's evident that 'Toy Man' is all about fun. The cover is a cartoon illustration of Christmas night, with Santa's sleigh turned upside down and the jolly man himself stuck in a chimney. Many Deemed Psychotic fans will recognize the first two tracks, 'Toy Man' and 'Toy Man 2', which have been at the top of Dark World International's downloads for twenty-eight consecutive months. The finished productions of these two internet favorites will not disappoint fans. In addition, Deemed Psychotic have rounded out the Toy Man saga by writing three new songs, Toy Man 3, Toy Man 4, and Toy Man 5. This tongue-in-cheek run, loosely inspired by Matt Groening's 'Futurama' show, is a perfect break from familiar carols and melancholy pop holiday songs.

In the original song 'Toy Man', Deemed Psychotic sing that Santa is dead because children no longer believe in him. In 'Toy Man 2', we learn that the band wasn't kidding - Santa really did die, caught in a chimney. Unfortunately for the world, one little girl brought Santa back to life - as a zombie! 'Toy Man 3' goes on to tell that parents couldn't stand Christmas being corrupted in such a manner so they built a new robot Santa to kill zombie Santa. 'Toy Man 4' is a rocking instrumental of the war between robot Santa and zombie Santa. Finally in 'Toy Man 5' robot Santa turns on all the people cheering him on, and the killing process is started all over again. "By the time Christmas actually comes around, most people are ready to explode when they hear yet another carol. And more recent holiday releases seem to all be depressing," says lyricist Kylyra. "We wanted to create some new Christmas songs that were great to listen to and a lot of fun as well."

The Toy Man release includes six songs in addition to the Toy Man saga, keeping high spirits and a sense of giddy fun going to the end. 'Smile on Delivery' and 'Autobahn' will be familiar to Deemed Psychotic fans from downloads available at www.darkworld.com. The appropriately named 'Hypomania', rolling in with a backwards sample, has been redone with sparkling vocals and sharp wit behind every syllable. 'Fred' and 'Reach Down' are both older songs to the band but brand new to Deemed Psychotic fans, and 'My Birthday Song', is a gem of a piece for anyone who has to celebrate their birthday alone. Rife with punk and progressive influences, the release 'Toy Man' shows a lighter side to Deemed Psychotic harkening back to some of their original songs on 'The 1st' without losing the band's signature sound of rich guitars and stand out keyboards.

Dark World International is proud to announce the holiday release 'Toy Man' from Deemed Psychotic. This fun holiday album is a treat for everyone, young and old. 'Toy Man' is now digitally available on iTunes Google Play, Spotify, Amazon, 7Digital, Deezer and many other digital retailers. Visit www. darkworld.com for more information.
