SEPTICFLESH will perform a headliner show at the Chaulnes Metal Fest in France on April 23, 2011. This show will be very special as all original members of the band will be on stage. That means that Sotiris Anunnaki V. (guitars / melodic vocals) will play in France for the first time in 12 years. The man’s live appearances are very rare due to obligations in Greece and this will be one of the few exceptions to the rule. Sotiris comments: "At last, after 12 long years of absence from the stages of France, I have the great pleasure to announce that I will soon come back, for a special SEPTICFLESH headlining show on Chaulnes Metal Fest. So join me and the other SEPTICFLESH members, on Saturday, April 23rd for a Mass of Death where we will perform the new psalms, but also some favourite old material that was handpicked by our fans specifically for this occasion!" The band’s new album "The Great Mass" is scheduled for an April 18, 2011 release.
OMISION from Tijuana B.C. Mexico will finally release their debut full length "In The Shadow Of The Cross" on March 25, 2011. The band has been around since 1993, founded by Heriberto Perez (rhythm guitar / vocals), and was already going through several line-up changes. Since 2000 they have released 3 CDR demos ("Pile-Up In The Morgue" – 2006, "Utopia Of Chaos" – 2007 and "Pray" – 2009) and shared the stages with bands like Incantation, Demilich, Usurper, Rigor Mortis, Coffin Texts, Hacavitz, Avenger of Blood, Estuary and others. During 2010 OMISION reached a record release agreement with Sydney, Australia based Asphyxiate Recordings, to produce and release their first full length album and in July 2010 they entered M&L Studio in Tijuana Baja California, México to finally begin tracking it. But a sudden turn in events lead Asphyxiate to close its doors. Now OMISION have found their home with México based Chaos Records. Here’s the complete tracklisting: ‘In The Shadow Of The Cross’, ‘Your God’, ‘Won’t Be Saved’, ‘Assault In The Vatican’, ‘Beyond The Burning Gates’, ‘Pray’, ‘No Idols’, ‘Fallen Angels’, ‘Seeking The Holy Throne’, ‘The Downfall’ and ‘For Those Far Away’.
