Black/Thrash duo SARCOPTES- composed of Garrett Garvey (vocals, drums) and Sean Zimmerman (Guitars, bass, keyboards) formed in Sacramento CA. in 2008. After years of toiling away in murky, decrepit rehearsal rooms the band finally emerged in 2013 with their debut EP ‘Thanatos’. Their sound, best described as a mix of classic 90’s black metal meets no-nonsense thrash with a dash of old school death metal stands at odds with today’s musical trends and harkens back to metals’ classic era. In 2015 Sarcoptes signed with the illustrious Cimmerian Shade Recordings to release their debut full-length opus ‘Songs and Dances of Death’. Riff driven with epic arrangements, ‘Songs and Dances of Death’ is poised to take the underground by storm.
A release date has yet to be decided but a late 2015/early 2016 unleashing for ‘Songs and Dances of Death’
