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 (ATLANTEAN KODEX) 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!

GATES OF HELL RECORDS

We’re proud to announce that in 2015 CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC will give birth to a little, lovely sister:

GATES OF HELL RECORDS!

Gates of Hell Records logo

GATES OF HELL RECORDS is a sub-label of Cruz Del Sur that will focus on old school metal bands of all styles. We mean classic heavy metal, but also black, death and thrash.

Many times we have been approached by valid bands we liked, but unfortunately did not feel as a good fit for Cruz Del Sur Music’s roster. But now, as we are constantly searching for high-quality bands, we want to fill the gap with GATES OF HELL RECORDS, whose distribution & promotional tools will be the same as Cruz Del Sur Music’s.

However, GATES OF HELL  RECORDS has its own A&R staff, so all inquiries regarding the label’s news, releases, merchandise etc., you should refer to www.gatesofhellrecords.com.

The first release will be the new ANAL VOMIT’s album “Peste Negra, Muerte Negra” to be released in early 2015 under license of Icarus Music. The cult Peruvian-combo returns to spread terror with an overdose of blackened death-thrash in the best tradition of the old South American masters.

“Peste Negra, Muerte Negra, ” is a massive and crushing opus, guaranteed to summon the dead from their graves and unleash Hell on Earth.

The album will feature an outrageous artwork by Mottla Art and will be available in compact disc and vinyl formats, both limited.
