Legendary Canadian Deathrashers SARKASM, have just signed a contract with Xtreem Music for the release of their long-awaited 1st album in early 2023.
SARKASM is a legendary Canadian Death/ Thrash band formed in 1990 which released 4 demos until they split up in 1994. The band reformed on and off since then, but it wasn’t until 2019 that the original lineup from their 2nd demo ’92 “Inner Flame” came together to write and record what will be their 1st full album, signing with Xtreem Music for the worldwide release of said album titled “As Empires Decay“, which contains 10 songs of a technical, fresh and addictive Death/ Thrash in the vein of bands like early GORGUTS, OBLIVEON, DEATH, PESTILENCE, ABSORBED… featuring Luc Lemay from GORGUTS as guest vocalist on some tracks!! Mastering is underway by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studios in Germany, so you can expect top quality work!!
The band saw their two studio demos from ’91/’92 re-issued on CD in 2012 in a very limited way, and then officially through Awakening Records in 2021. They also just saw their demo ’92 re-issued “Inner Flame” on 10″ vinyl + T-shirt via Xtreem Music in their 10 Inches of DeathCult series last August, on a very limited pressing, and still available here: www.10DeathCult.com
The release date for “As Empires Decay” is yet to be determined, but it will happen during the first months of 2023. We will inform you about it while we will show you some preview and the album cover when everything is finished.
