So I'm a day late on this, my bad I was out of town the last two days. Regardless though, this weeks band of the week is a band called Sidious. The band is brand new, having formed only a few months ago back in November. This month though they released their first work with an EP titled Ascension To The Throne Ov Self. The band plays a brand of blackened death metal that is heavily inspired by the likes of Behemoth, Vader, and Septic Flesh.
For a debut EP Ascension is quite stellar. The production on the EP is top notch on level with Behemoth's Evangelion. There's pretty much nothing not to hate on this album apart from the fact that you might wish it were longer than 4 tracks. Hoepfully the band is able to produce more music beyond this album.
Check out this awesome song:
I'm assuming the band members are Star Wars fans of some sort as Darth Sidious is a pretty prominant figure is all of the movies. I think the name is purely for effect though the same way Vader is, in that the band doesn't write songs about Star Wars. Still makes for an awesome name though.
The band could use your help in terms of likes on facebook, as of writing this they've only got 633, so drop by and give them a like. Also feel free to listen to their album off their bandcamp!
