SANHEDRIN - Deal with Cruz Del Sur Music
SANHEDRIN, one of the most exciting new bands to emerge from the Brooklyn music scene, has signed with Cruz Del Sur Music for the April 27th European and May 4th North American vinyl release of their debut full-length, “A Funeral For The World”.
The 2014 creation of guitarist Jeremy Sosville (BLACK ANVIL) and drummer Nathan Honor, SANHEDRIN was eventually joined by former AMBER ASYLUM and LOST GOAT bassist/vocalist Erica Stoltz, whose vocal and lyrical exploits quickly became the perfect complement to the pair’s fledgling compositions. The trio produced a self-titled demo in 2015, but it wasn’t until “A Funeral For The World” did the band come into their own. Boasting a familiar, but not derivative sound, SANHEDRIN’s songwriting is rooted in the classics, translating into a fresh and honest take on rock and metal that easily crosses into doom, hard rock and stoner metal territory.
Live stints with ACID KING, CASTLE, CAULDRON, CRYPT SERMON, HELL FIRE, KHEMMIS, MAGIC CIRCLE and SATAN furthered honed SANHEDRIN’s approach, ultimately leading to Cruz Del Sur Music offering the band a deal.
