Dark Star Records is pleased to announce that it has Inked a deal with the experimental Chicago based progressive metal band Sectara.

With a combined appreciation for classic bands such as Voivod, Cynic, Death, Godflesh, Napalm Death, Tool, Kyuss, Faith No More, Mr. Bungle, and Macabre, Sectara have achieved something monumental with the completion of their debut full length recording.

Also, Bruce Lamont and Matt Mclellund of Yakuza made guest saxophone and vocal appearances on the album along with Corporate Death of Macabre, who does guest vocals and guitar solos. The new album “Interstellar Terror” is now available worldwide at iTunes, Google Play, Spotify, Amazon, Rhapsody and more via Dark Star Records and Sony Music Entertainment.

Conquest, Two Ton Anvil, Low Twelve and Bloody Mary Confirmed for Indianapolis Metal Fest 2013

Two Ton Anvil
Low Twelve
Bloody Mary

We are pleased to announce that Dark Star Records artists Conquest, Two Ton Anvil, Low Twelve and Bloody Mary have been confirmed for Indianapolis Metal Fest 2013. The two day US metal festival will take place in the Circle City on September 20th and 21st, 2013. The event will feature more than 50 bands playing on three different stages, including one all-ages stage. According to festival founder, Rob Mason, the festival will consist of top underground metal bands with some well respected headliners playing each night. The price of the tickets will be fairly low as well as the price of food and drinks but yet promises to deliver the finest in underground metal. While Indianapolis Metal Fest is supported, in part, by corporate sponsors, those relationships have never dictated the event’s underground sensibilities. Says Mason, “Metal is as much a lifestyle as it is a style of music, and Indianapolis Metal Fest is about more than just the music. It’s also about fellowshipping with like-minded individuals – like a family reunion for Metal Heads.” Dark Star Records was a sponsor for the last Indianapolis Metal Fest and this year Jeffrey A Swanson and Lloyd Freeze have selected four of the labels finest artists: Conquest, Two Ton Anvil, Low Twelve and the All Girl Teenage Metal Band Bloody Mary.

Indianapolis Metal Fest 3 is sponsored by Sam Ash Music, Roaring Lion Energy Drink, Halo Custom Guitars, Dark Star Records, In-tune Custom Guitar Picks, and Abercrombie Ink.
