Astronomikon Signs With Pure Steel Records, Debut LP "Dark Gorgon Rising" On The Way

Cyprus metal band Astronomikon, featuring Arrayan Path members Nicholas Leptos (vocals) and Paris Lambrou (bass), have signed a world wide deal with Pure Steel Records. The band will release its debut LP "Dark Gorgon Rising" with the label soon. In 2010, a three song demo of the same name was self-issued by the band.

For a taste of Astronomikon, head over to the band's Official website and hear the song "Rocka Rolla Sword" (plays automatically on the site's home page). The band's biography reads:

"Paris Lambrou (bass guitar) initiated Astronomikon with Nicholas Leptos (vocals), in 2008, in Nicosia, Cyprus. They have been bandmates for many years in Arrayan Path and Prodigal Earth, as they both share the same passion for heavy metal. Since long ago, people around the world have associated the heavens, the stars, and the patterns they make in the sky with their gods and heroes. Through the music of ASTRONOMIKON, find out about the myths and legends of different cultures around the world. The band is currently working with producer Evagelos Maranis, Sokratis Leptos (guitars, keyboards) and Stefan Dittrich (drums) on a concept album that is expected to be released in 2012. The story is the myth of Perseus, the first of the mythic heroes of Greek Mythology whose exploits in defeating various archaic monsters provided the founding myths in the cult of the Twelve Olympians. Perseus was the hero who killed Medusa, tamed Pegasus and claimed Andromeda, having rescued her from a sea monster."
