Paying no heed to musical trends or fads and favouring authentic aggression, SIDERIAN weld massive riffs, thought-provoking lyrics and no end of screaming vocals to their relentless signature groove, and their nine-track debut album the culmination of years of hard work and time spent refining their sound!
The band entered Initiate Audio and Media Studios in late 2018 with the legendary Neil Hudson (Krysthla, Gutworm) at the helm to lay down an album that delivers on their promise of making everything as heavy, fast and harsh as possible without compromising on the need for memorable songs. From the blistering, straight up thrash metal of the title track to the calculated bludgeon of “The Supplicant” and the eclectic whirlwind that is “Voices”, Origins is an album that dips in and out of metal’s more extreme sub-genres at will, seamlessly mixing a blend of razor-sharp riffery and caustic vocals with percussive battery and thumping low-end.
Former singles “Oleum” (which you can watch below) and “Lizard Method Statement” (which previously attracted attention from BBC Introducing and BBC national radio) have been re-recorded for the album, the latter featuring a crushing new bridge that showcases the improved writing abilities of the band.
Origins is of sufficient calibre to have attracted offers from the likes of WormHoleDeath and Sliptrick Records but will be released independently in both physical format and across all digital platforms, with stunning full colour artwork and liner notes created by the rising talent of Dark Days Design. A video for lead single “The Supplicant” will be unleashed in late Spring 2019, shot with long-time collaborator Light Focus Videography.
In the meantime, pre-orders for the album and associated merch designs are currently live and have seen phenomenal take up so far: https://siderian.bigcartel.com/ The title track “Origins” is available to stream here: goo.gl/F4jdaK and is being made available as a free download for all pre-orders alongside an A3 full-colour poster of the album artwork.
Having spent little time on the road in 2018 due to writing and recording commitments, the Siderian live machine will be exploding across the country in 2019 playing with the likes of Vader (POL) and Fateful Finality (DE). In addition, the band have seen off more than 700 of their peers to reach the Live Finals for the opportunity to play Amplified Festival 2019. Siderian have been biding their time long enough and with a powerful statement of intent in the shape of Origins and a live show to back up the increasing hype, theirs is a name you can expect to see a lot of in 2019.
Origins is due for release on Friday 21st June 2019
