“…astonishing riff-centric brilliance of Sacral Rage, a Greek speed metal band that has stumbled upon (or, more likely, slavishly labored to create) an album’s worth of ingenious riffs on its debut, Illusions In Infinite Void. The band owes a stylistic debt to forgotten progressive metal legends Watchtower, but Sacral Rage soundly trump their heroes by writing songs you’ll actually want to revisit. Like Watchtower, the vocals are an acquired taste, but air-raid falsetto screams have never had better musical accompaniment than this. “En Cima Del Mal” shows the band at its catchiest: lead guitars writhe over subtle shifts of rhythm, but the hooks are front and center and the heavy metal thunder is strong. Most importantly, the riffs are godlike: explosive, exploratory, and perfectly crafted…” (stereogum)

“Illusions in Infinite Void”, will be released March 10 in North America and March 21 in Europe.

SACRAL RAGE’s ‘Illusions in Infinite Void’ Set for March 10 North American Release

CRUZ73_600X600_300DPI

Illusions in Infinite Void, the debut full-length from Greek Heavy Metal Force SACRAL RAGE will be released in March 2015 (March 10 in North America and March 27 in Europe)  on Cruz Del Sur Music.

Illusions in Infinite Void is a monumental piece of Metal from start to finish. Indeed it’s an ever-changing Metal vortex with countless rhythmic-changes and  no weak moments, a tense state of aggression in which singer Dimitri’s excellent performance and the textured guitar lines stand out.  The band plays U.S. style metal with some European influences. Acts such as JAG PANZER, ANNIHILATOR, MERCYFUL FATE, JUDAS PRIEST, WATCHTOWER, and RUSH are major influences.  Lyrics about horror, supernatural, dark fantasy, soul searching, forbidden religions, perfectly match the band’s dark, aggressive, technical and paranoid music.

On Illusions in Infinite Void, the band proves to be more than just a mere replica of the most influential bands of  the Golden Age of (especially) U.S .Metal. Hand in hand with a granitic rhythmic session, their songs turn, change and evolve endlessly into a wide variety of riffs, screams and roars!  SACRAL  RAGE have undoubtedly written one of the most inspired releases of 2015.

The tracklist is:

1. Harbinger
2. En Cima Del Mal
3. Lost Chapter E.: Sutratma
4. Panic in Urals (Burning Skies)
5. Waltz in Madness
6. Into Mental East
7. Inner Sanctum Asylum
8. A Tyrannous Revolt
9. Lost Chapter E.: Amarna’s Reign

ARGUS announces line-up changes

Argus-Feb-2015-crop

Argus has parted ways with bassist Andy Ramage and guitarist Erik Johnson. We thank them for the time and talent they put into Argus over the years. We wish them well in their future musical pursuits. The final recording to feature this version of Argus is the forthcoming 7″ single “Death Hath No Conscience” b/w “Streets of Gold.”

Moving forward Argus has turned to longtime friend Justin Campbell to join the band as their new bassist. Justin is a seasoned musician who has an extensive history with members of Argus and bands like RATM2, SIKES!, Come Summer, and Tabula Rasa.

Dave Watson, the engineer behind all three Argus full lengths, will join the band as a live guitar player for the forthcoming dates in Dublin, the Roadburn Festival and in Pittsburgh. Dave is a great guitarist, formerly with Mantic Ritual and currently a member of Icarus Witch and DC Cooper’s solo band.
