CRUZ DEL SUR MUSIC is proud to announce another prestigious addition to its roster: VESTAL CLARET
One of the most mysterious and intriguing bands to appear from the American underground in the last few years, VESTAL CLARET is the creature of Simon Tuozzoli and Phil Swanson (of SEAMOUNT / HOUR OF 13 fame), and play a killer mixture of doom and heavy metal riffage with a definite penchant for the morbid and sick atmospheres.
Are you ready for the ritual to begin? You better go sharpen your krises!

STEEL PROPHET - New album announcement
STEEL PROPHET’s much discussed and long awaited new album “Omniscient” will be released by Cruz Del Sur Music in 2014, both on compact disc and vinyl formats.
A living reference for all fans of American Metal, STEEL PROPHET needs no introduction to the heavy metal world: with a long history, the band is particularly known for the technical and versatile guitar work of founding member Steve Kachinsky Blakmoor. Let's not forget the soaring vocals of Rick Mythiasin, who has returned to sing with Steel Prophet for the first time since 2002’s “Unseen” album.
“Omniscient” is a conceptual, science fiction themed album, with a heavy dose of unusual philosophies and ideas, that will appeal to all fans of Steel Prophet’s early works, especially the “Dark Hallucinations” period. This new album will have a visually outstanding package that will read like a graphic novel to highlight the story that underlines the music.
The album will be released in June 2014, when the band is scheduled to return on tour in Europe after their successful 2013 headliner show at the German cult-festival “KEEP IT TRUE”. Stay tuned for more relevant updates!
