Just shortly after announcing the signing of almighty death metal icons NILE to Napalm Records, the premier international rock and metal label have announce the additional signing of the band’s own mastermind Karl Sanders’ solo project, with plans to release brand new SAURIAN music next year.
Following the first two SAURIAN project albums — Saurian Meditation (2004) and Saurian Exorcisms (2009) — KARL SANDERS is ready to unleash more musical musings from inside his eclectically influenced mind. To date, each SAURIAN release has explored unique, original compositions of haunting, primarily Middle Eastern inspired music in a cinematic, ambient and mostly instrumental format — similar to the quiet, exotic interludes found on NILE albums. Providing a diverse escape for both fans of NILE and those otherwise intrigued by its world music aura, SAURIAN proves that Sanders’ universe is anything but one-dimensional.
In addition to releasing new SAURIAN music, Napalm Records will reissue both Saurian Meditation and Saurian Exorcisms, with more details to come.
KARL SANDERS says about the signing: “I am just thrilled to death that we have signed up with Napalm Records for the new KAarl Sanders SAURIAN album. I am really happy that we have found such a good home for both NILE and my SAURIAN side project, as they are a great company with some sincere people. I am looking forward in earnest to working together with everyone at Napalm to bring fans the new SAURIAN music, as well as re-releasing the first two SAURIAN records.”
Stay tuned for more information on upcoming SAURIAN music and reissues, coming soon!
