This was great news to my inbox. One of my favorite local bands (My mom calls them Sic O Sic) is teaming up with one of my favorite people in the business. Read on!
SICOCIS sign to M-Theory Audio to release new album in 2017
Las Vegas’ premiere metal band SICOCIS have been making a name for themselves in their scene from winning the title of best local metal band from Vegas Rocks magazine and Battle of the Bands to sharing the stage with the likes of Dark Tranquillity, Kamelot, Devin Townsend, Amaranthe, Tesseract, Kataklysm, Dragonforce, Unearth and many more. Recently the band has been gigging out regionally and recording a brand new full-length album, which will see release early next year.
Sicocis blends influences from the melodic death metal, epic power metal and dark, progressive scenes creating their own unique and modern sound. The group have partnered with label M-Theory Audio, also based in Las Vegas, to release,Requiem of the World. M-Theory Audio is the imprint of Marco Barbieri, former President of Century Media and Nuclear Blast Records, and current manager for bands like Flotsam and Jetsam, Warbringer and Exmortus.
“We are absolutely thrilled to announce our partnership with M-Theory Audio. We have known Marco for many years, and are very happy to be working with him as we share common goals and aspirations,” states singer/guitarist Ernie Rodrigues. “We are extremely excited to continue our path, and have M-Theory by our side. Sicocis is very proud to represent the finest!”
“A couple years back I was immediately struck by Sicocis as from the get-go they did everything right as they aggressively promoted their shows, performed very professionally for a local band, are super nice guys and most of all kicked-ass,” explains Marco Barbieri. “I’ve kept my eye on them and their development and was just floored when they played me their new album that I knew I had to bring my experience and connections so more people could be exposed to this band.”
“We want to achieve an overall sound and feel for Sicocis that is a limitless source of emotions within the music. We want listeners to escape their realities and lose themselves in the stories and tone of each song,” explains guitarist Rafael Ortega. “The music is dark and heavy and bit progressive, but also incorporates that dynamic, almost cinematic, sound that can be fast-paced and extreme.”
Look for more details soon about Sicocis and the release date for Requiem of the World. Pre-order available at www.m-theory.com/store for the special price of $8.
