CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC will release on Feb 5 (Europe) and Feb 12 (World) “Deadhead Syndicate” debut album of German speed/thrash metal band SEPTAGON.
SEPTAGON is the creature of LANFEAR / THEM’S mastermind Markus “Ulle” Ullrich, who in 2013 met Markus Becker (ATLANTEANKODEX) with the idea of forming an old-school speed/thrash metal band which had the aggression of Exodus, Slayer and Testament but also the melody and technical appeal of Forbidden, Heathen, Realm, Watchtower.
Expect fast, technical tracks, mid paced stuff and good hooklines!
Check their lyric video for “Unwanted Company” here:
SACRAL RAGE‘s “Illusions in Infinite Void” will be released in Europe next week, in coincidence with the band’s show in Athens supporting SANCTUARY.
Therefore we begin today the all pre orders shipping, in order to deliver copies in time or even shortly after the release date.
A new track from the album, “Lost Chapter E.: Sutratma” has been released on YouTube:
