release: 12 February 2016
Members of the long-running metal bands Lanfear and Atlantean Kodex formed a thrash band a few years ago and soon the album will be released. In the meantime, the following is the official information about Septagon.
CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC will release Deadhead Syndicate, the debut album from German speed/thrash metal band SEPTAGON on Feb 5 (Europe) and Feb 12 (World).
Not a mere side-project but a real band, SEPTAGON will make its debut on stage on Jan 31 at Metal Assault Festival (Germany) with the likes of LIEGE LORD, VENOM INC. and RAM.
SEPTAGON is the creature of LANFEAR's mastermind and guitarist Markus “Ulle” Ullrich, who joined forces with ATLANTEAN KODEX’ vocalist Markus Becker in 2013 to form an old-school band that blends the aggression of Exodus, Slayer and Testament with the melodic and technical appeal of bands like Forbidden, Heathen, Realm or Watchtower.
The line-up was completed shortly after with Jürgen Schrank (LANFEAR) on drums and Alexander Palma on bass. Though Ulle is used to to play all guitars on LANFEAR, he was determined to find a second guitarist for SEPTAGON in order to make band’s sound tighter, and the choice finally fell on Stef-Binnig Gollub.
With such skilled members, “Deadhead Syndicate” results thus an extremely versatile album with an amazing creative edge; constantly supported by a precise and dynamic rhythm section, the guitars draw fantastic patterns at a furious pace and the vocals sound convincing in these intense and torrid sounds as well as in the more-paced moments. In the end, as described by the band itself, “Deadhead Syndicate” is a METAL ALBUM with lots of riffs & melody. Fast, technical tracks, mid paced stuff and good hooklines.
