Unleashing the debut album "Shurpu" digitally on November 17th, Denver symphonic black metal trio Sar Isatum has signed on to both Exalted Woe Records and Death Portal Studio for distribution of the physical CD release of the full length, to be released on December 22nd. "We are honored to announce that we made a distribution deal for the first print of our album with Death Portal Studio and Exalted Woe Records. They have a lot of great bands on each of their rosters and we thank Zach and Anthony for their support and contributions to this release." comments drummer JP Dalkhu.
Creating music for themselves, not copying what has come before, fans of various styles of black metal will find much to appreciate in Sar Isatum's debut album "Shurpu." The release features seven blistering tracks that are ethereal, nefarious, abhorrent, and cryptic. The concept of the album is a loose collection of stories told from an omnipotent source to establish Sar Isatum, the Lord's of fire perception of the world and thusly announce their entry into it through "Shurpu" a purification by fire.
"The album is a visceral piece of music, tight aggressive black metal that has punishingly brutal moments. The haunting keys give space to the musical assault and provide atmosphere with vocals that invoke a spirit of war." adds Dalkhu.
