U.S. metal act Necrytis released the new single "Starshine," which can be heard in the player above. The song is the first single issued from the new album "Dread En Ruin," which is set for release on June 29th via Pure Steel Records. Pre-orders will be available on June 15th via the label's webshop.
Necrytis - featuring former Onward main main Toby Knapp - already released the debut album "Countersighns" through Pure Steel Publishing. Now, less than a year later - the sophomore album is finished and the band moves to the label's main division - Pure Steel Records!
With "Dread En Ruin," fans can expect traditional, straight 80s U.S. power metal with a slight melodic edge. The influence of Onward can be heard everywhere on this record, although Toby provides his work here with an even more progressive and playful mark. Drummer, vocalist, lyricist Shane Wacaster and Knapp have created an album that not only salutes the obvious influences of Fates Warning and Queensryche but gives a nod towards early NWoBHM era Def Leppard and even vintage Jethro Tull!
