WIGAN metallers Sinnergod are forging a path to success in 2013 after signing a record deal for a label representing some of the biggest names in rock.

The band are currently preparing the songs which will be included on their debut album, which will be released later this year on Yellowdog CPM, whose roster of artists includes former Black Sabbath frontman Tony Martin and Iron Maiden ex-vocalist Blaze Bayley, who is already known to the band after previously making a cameo appearance on the song It’s A Wonderful Life from Sinnergod’s last EP.

The five-piece, comprising guitarist and vocalist Mark Hampson, guitarist and backing vocalist Dave Jones, bassist Karl Parker, drummer Chris Hampson and keyboardist and sampler Marc Robinson, are also looking forward to a busy year on the road including a jaunt across the UK supporting German cult industrial metallers KMFDM and a visit to Trashfest in Finland, one of Europe’s largest alternative music events.

Sinnergod have begun securing live appearances for next year, with a trip to Altfest, one of the biggest festival dedicated to the goth, industrial and metal scenes, in the pipeline. The band will also be making tracks across the continent during the recording process of their album, but as manager Jason Abraham explains, the details of the release are being kept firmly under wraps.

Jason said: “We’re trying to get the album ready for a Hallowe’en release date, but apart from that the details are being kept quiet.

“From what I can tell the new songs are going to be quite different to anything Sinnergod have done before, they seem to have their own sound.

“It looks like part of it is going to be recorded in Paris, things like the drum tracking. There might also be some special guests on the album, but that’s as much as I can say at the moment.

“The deal with Yellowdog came about when the band were on tour with Blaze Bayley. The head of the label had a listen and said he could see big things ahead for the band.

“It’s a really good offer they’ve come up with, and should help the band get on to the next step of the ladder.”
