W.E.B. Sign With Alpha Omega Management

Alpha Omega Management is thrilled to announce the signing of the Greek Symphonic Dark Metallers W.E.B.

W.E.B. is a Dark / Black / Death / Goth Metal band based in the ashes of Athens - Greece. The Fall of 2002AD was the time that the idea of W.E.B. was born and started to take a lifeform shape from an embryonic state to a music challenge expressing darkness and death through adrenaline and poetry. An expression both straight but at the same time theatrical. W.E.B. is here to move you, provoke you, and invite you to the journey through ravendark starless nights with a fire made of Metal music. Their fourth album, "Tartarus" came out on November 10th (2017) via Apathia Records, which is probably the band's most diverse album, so far! “Tartarus” focuses on a deeper inclusion of orchestrations, making it sound more epic, while keeping the band’s very own Dark Metal genre. The album also features a noticeable guest apparition by Sotiris Vayenas (Septic Flesh) on the ninth track "Thanatos Part I - Golgotha".
