Forging ahead while grateful for the past

After a short interruption, all of Septekh‘s releases are now available in the same one place on Deezer, Spotify, iTunes, and all other relevant streaming and download platforms.

Forging ahead while being much grateful for the past, Septekh has indeed parted ways with Abyss Records. Here’s what the combo has to say about it:

The band would like to extend at big thank you to Mr. Dan Ferguson at Abyss Records for believing in us all these years. He was the one that got us to get our shit together to produce our first releases back in 2009. The rerelease of those EPs on our own label, Studio 508 Productions, marks a continuance of what he, through his faith in our music, helped create. In this context we’d also like to give a loud shout out to Mr. Mike McCoy at The Metal Detector Music Promotions for tenaciously spreading the gospel of the Dark Island. If we ever meet you guys in a bar somewhere there will be Champagne!”

You will still of course be able to get the band’s CDs, shirts and patches from Abyss Records, which we highly recommend.

Besides, we’re delighted to announce that there’s fresh new material in the pipeline, as you might know already. The future has never looked so promising – stay tuned!

In the grip of unyielding ice!

After spending some time with the band at the 508 I can report that conditions out there are not what you’d call humane. Water’s frozen, firewood is running out and coffee supply is dwindling (still good on the sherry though). Our protagonists are currently doing technical updates while fending off various predatory beasts of the frozen tundra and researching the lyrics for what I’m told is to be their “most sinister and brilliant work to date” and a “worthy and diabolical first step in the implementation of the Plan”. All the while the word is spreading through the mysterious arts of our new co conspirators at Musica Diaboli.

Here’s a couple more songs from the Plan For World Domination album to cheer you up. Black Shores and The Man Who Died A Million Times (right click to download mp3). Not 100% sure but I’m betting the Lady GRZNLS will have something cryptic to say about those pieces in the next couple o days.
