Surya Sign to Argonauta Records; Apocalypse A.D. Due in Spring

Didn’t take long for Italian imprint Argonauta Records to announce its first new signing of the year in London’s Surya (also stylized with a long accent mark over the ‘u’ that I can’t seem to make show up), who will issue their debut album through the label in Spring following up on a self-recorded single put out last year. The record will be a CD/download, and presumably there will be preorder opportunities sometime between now and its release, but for now, there’s a brand new trailer posted if you’re inclined toward that kind of thing, and the announcement of the band signing came through the PR wire.

It looked a lot like this, only less blue:



Stoked to start the new year with a new very promising name being part of our family. London, UK based SURYA are authors of a huge Instrumental Post Metal tinged Doom, where music is a mix of heaviness and subtle sonic landscapes, ugliness and beauty. Earth, Water, Air and Fire- all in its eternal dance of creation and destruction, bringing light through understanding the darkness.

After releasing one-track demo in 2015 (self recorded at Overdrive Studios in Deptford) and playing few shows around London, SURYA went to Bear Bites Horse studio in may 2015 to record their first full-length album.

The band was formed with the idea of exploring the depths of music rather than staying on the surface, connecting with themselves and everything around them.
For S?rya, music and art in general are powerful tools for conveying ideas, like human/animal liberation and going back to Nature, and a whole spectrum of emotions.
About the collaboration with ARGONAUTA Records, SURYA say: “We are really excited to join Argonauta Records, looking forward to releasing our first full-length, “Apocalypse A.D.”. It is an honour to share the label with such great bands from all over the world!”

“Apocalypse A.D.” will be released on CD/DD via ARGONAUTA Records and available during Spring 2016.

S?rya line up:
Bartek – Guitar (formerly of Exmisja ), Raf – Guitar (formerly of Szeol), Raquel – Drums (also of Prisa Mata), Mark – Bass (also of Prisa Mata, formerly of Tombgrinder, Wolfhead, Cultfinder).
