From the bowels of Satan’s lair, Dizastra has come.
Their story begins with veteran performer of Quebec’s Heavy Montreal music festival and Wacken Metal Battle Canada finalist Matt Conti. He joined forces with Denis Stoisin. Together they mixed melody with ferocity, merging the sounds of Black, Thrash and Melodic Heavy Metal. Within a year of forming,Dizastra released their first EP titled Hell’s Gate in 2015. The release brought them recognition as a rising force within the Quebec Heavy Metal scene and national acclaim.
Dizastra’s line-up was solidified in the summer of 2017 with the addition of Nathan Afilalo of Dissension on bass and Petey Giampa of Venomenon on drums. The contributions of these new members summoned new speed and malice to the group’s sound. With the band firmly established, they dug their heels in the trenches and began writing material for their first full-length album.
At long last, the wait is finally over. Elder Sun is the next chapter in Dizastra’s legacy that will guarantee them a place amongst Heavy Metal’s elite. Set for release in the fall of 2019, the Elder Sun rises.
‘Vae Victus’ is the first single from Elder Sun. The anthem to riding a dragon through Hades, this track combines all the elements of what make Heavy Metal, Heavy Metal. Bringing together shrieking vocals, pummeling drums, cosmic-threatning bass and electrifying (literally) solos, Vae Victus rides a triumph through listeners ears.
The music video demonstrates their meager budget and Tolkien level story telling in a compelling tale of time travel and high adventure. Wizards, warriors, battle and friendship all come together to dazzle viewers across the globe.
