UK's blackened death metal horde Sidious has announced the identity of the drummer who joined the band under a veil of secrecy earlier this year when the band began work on its debut full-length.
The mysterious skinsman has been revealed as Krhudd, the mastermind and sole member of Colosus, who released its digital-only debut, "Blastem," last year on Kaotoxin Records. Other roster shifts have seen guitarist Isfeth take over vocal duties after the departure of vocalist Tom "Void" Allen.
Sidious, featuring members of funeral doomsters Eye Of Solitude, took the underground by storm in 2013 with their debut EP, "Ascension to the Throne Ov Self." The new lineup has spent the last 12 months hard at work on their full-length debut.
The album was recorded, mixed and mastered by world-renowned producer Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death) at Parlour Studios and is set for release this fall on Kaotoxin Records.
London's Sidious has a new album trailer out now, available below, and the band also comments:
"We present to you a short teaser of our forthcoming debut full-length release where you can sample just under a minute of one of our album tracks.
"The support and feedback we had from our EP last year was unbelievable, and we can't wait to show you what we've been working on since. Hopefully this short clip will give you an idea of what to expect from our album, which we are feeling confident will define the sound that Sidious wishes to achieve and maintain."
Blackened Death Metal horde Sidious (featuring Eye Of Solitude members) will embark on a four day trip across the UK in July alongside The Infernal Sea, Ethereal and Scutum Crux in support of their "Ascension to the Throne Ov Self" debut EP released on May 2013 by Kaotoxin Records.
The band is currently busy working on their debut full-length which will be produced by their EP's producer Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death...) and released later this year.
Sidious has also been invited to join the bill of a very special event in September, "Wrongstock" - a festival of exclusively Russ Russell-produced artists. They will be joining the likes of Leng Tch'e, The Rotted, DripBack, Karybdis, Evil Scarecrow, Saturnian, Oaf and Shrapnel. Wrongstock will take place in London's The Underworld on September 20th.

London blackened death metal act Sidious will be releasing the "Ascension To The Throne Ov Self" EP on digital and CD format this coming May 6th (UK) and May 7th (FR, BE, Canada, & US) via Kaotoxin Records. The label also commented:
"We are delighted to announce the addition of almighty UK-based Sidious to the label's roster. The band features two Eye Of Solitude members in its line-up and plays an insanely heavy brand of Blackened Death Metal that will delight the fans of Behemoth and Zyklon, topping in with dark orchestral parts.
"Their debut EP, produced by Russ Russell (Dimmu Borgir, Napalm Death, Lock Up...) will be released in May and they'll embark on an European tour with Eye Of Solitude in June."
South London's Seed of Detest has issued the following announcement about calling it quits and forming a new band with the original Seed of Detest lineup:
"The time has come for us to announce that Seed of Detest has ceased to exist. But DO NOT WORRY! This is something that has been planned for months in the run-up to the release of our new EP, which we will release early next year under the name of our new project 'SIDIOUS.' This new band is made up of the full original line-up of SoD, so our years of writing/rehearsing/jamming together have not gone to waste!
"We'd like to thank every single one of you that has supported Seed over the last couple of years. Whether it be purchasing our merch, listening to our music, coming to our shows, or being an active fan our our page, we are all eternally grateful.
"If you would like to follow us in our new musical direction then by all means please click the link here which will forward you to our new band page where you can sample a teaser of what to expect from us in the near future! If you like what you hear, please give SIDIOUS a 'like' and your continued support will not go unnoticed!! See you all on the other side...." More...
