Please tell us about the history of your band and its members.
Sacred Seal was born with the guitarist Jeremy Caron (ex Restful) who had already composed many riffs with the idea of a concept album of progressive dark and power music. He contacted his ex drummer,Laurent Ferrari (Restful), then they quickly found the singer, Nicky Daymond, and finally the bassist, Alex Stayne, and the second guitarist, Yannick Bazola (ex Restful). After a year of hard work, we released our first album Incarnation in September 2015.
How would you describe your style? Which bands influenced your music?
Sacred Seal is a modern heavy metal band, with a powerful female vocal, rich of its large influences, offering a dark universe, with occult background.
We have large influences (Avenged Sevenfold,King Diamond, Megadeth, Symphony X, As I lay Dying, Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Vai, for the main ones... ), offering a dark universe, with occult background.
Why should a metalhead buy your demos/albums?
The album « Incarnation » will please all the people who hopes to discover a modern heavy metal standing out of the standards, with an atypical powerful female vocal.
What have you released so far and how were your releases received by the public/media?
We only released one album in two years of existence, but that's not so bad !
We did some pretty good gigs in France in 2015 , like the first part of The Treatment (UK), Jaded Heart (Germany), Blackrain (France), which gave us an excellent feedback of the public and the medias (chronicle in Metallian magazine of January-february).Some international webzines contacted us for reviews, and we are actually thinking about a label and promoter's propositions.
Do you play live as well? How's your live activity so far?
We play live exatcly as it is on the cd, there are no samples for us ! Long live rock'n'roll !
What should labels/zines/promoters know about your band? Why should they be interested in it?
We are looking for a label and promoter who will give us the opportunity to be known out of our frontiers. Our aim is the internationnal scene, and we are a band made for the stage !
What plans do you have for the near future as a band?
For now we are focused on the Headbang Contest in March, we wish to win our ticket to play the Motocultor fest, and in April we will take part to the Female Event in Holland.
Anyway we are opened to any other propositions...
Where can we listen to your band and where can we buy your stuff?
