CRETUS – Release New Music Video


CRETUS is releasing their debut EP, Dux Mea Lux, September 4th on Pavement Music. The group’s new video for “Price Of Immortality” can be seen HERE.

Rock vet Pepper Keenan (Down, Corrosion Of Conformity) has been singing the mysterious group’s praises, stating: “Cretus is a killer band with ripping guitar work and clear vocal hooks. For sure a future global outfit. They wear masks and slaughter virgins on stage. Need I say more?”

Cretus’ music is hard-hitting thrash metal at its core; mathematically-precise riffs, dive-bombing guitar solos, and thundering drums pummel the listener, but their compelling melodies and bizarre pop sensibility make each song from forthcoming EP, Dux Mea Lux, subtly addictive.

MALICE IN WONDERLAND has decided to call it quits. Here is the official statement: “After being in Malice In Wonderland half my life I have decided to put Malice In Wonderland to rest” says singer and founder Chris Wicked. “Earlier this summer Tracy (guitarist) informed me that he wanted a break from the music industry to focus on other stuff. I don’t want to bring in a new guitarist in the band at this point and therefor feel it is time to end this incredibly journey. It’s been 10 years since we released our debut CD, it’s been a hell of a ride and we all agree it’s a good time to close the book. Two farewell shows (Helsinki & Bergen) will be held before we take the final bow.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported us and stood by us over the years...
