Sargon Streaming Judas Priest Cover "Hell Bent For Leather"

Phoenix, Arizona death/thrasher Sargon covered the Judas Priest classic “Hell Bent For Leather,” which can now be streamed below.

In addition, the band has started the writing process for the follow-up to “In Contempt,” released in 2011 by Old Cemetery Records.

Sargon is also welcoming the addition of lead guitarist Jack Fliegler and drummer Michael Ohlson, who stepped in for former drummer Rickard Stjernquist after he decided to focus on his main band Benedictum and other projects. The band is thankful for the work Rickard put into Sargon’s 2012 EP “The Bitter End” and wishes him much success in all his endeavors.

Sargon 2013 is:

Frank Van Kwartel: Guitar/Vocals
Kelly Conlon: Bass
Michael Ohlson: Drums
Jack Fliegler: Lead Guitar

The band issued the following statement about the cover tune and lineup changes:

"Judas Priest is one of Sargon’s biggest influences/inspirations and are directly responsible for the band’s Thrash N’ Roll sound. Sargon had a lot of fun paying their due respects to The Metal Gods and hopes that people enjoy their Sargonized take of the timeless classic. Track was recorded at Ryan ArcaneDigital Studios by Ryan Butker, Mixed at PTY Studios by Ignacio Molino, and mastered at The Audio Refinery Studios by Eric Koondel.

"Sargon’s second full-length album is expected for an early 2014 release, and new album details will be issued later this year. Below you can play Sargon’s version of 'Hell Bent For Leather' on the embedded Sound Cloud player along with two tracks from past Sargon releases. Be sure to check out Sargon’s official Facebook page for all up and coming updates."
