In 2017 U.S cult metal favorites CEREBUS returned to the metal scene following the Heaven and Hell Records re-issue of the 1986 classic album “Too Late to Pray”. Two triumphant festival appearances at Legions of Metal in Chicago in 2017 and Keep It True in Germany would help to solidify the band’s return and prove that CEREBUS is a force to be reckoned with.
This year will CEREBUS returning to Germany on July 25-27 to take part of the annual Headbanger’s Open Air Festival
This year Heaven and Hell Records will also be releasing a collection of CEREBUS demos recorded between 1984 -’88. The label had previously mentioned that there was a lot of unreleased material by the band and had hoped to bring it out into the light eventually.
“We are break open the Cerebus vaults to share a lot of unreleased material never heard before…
These demos will span from the beginning time period of 1984-85 throughout the “Banshee” era. For us it’s like time travel evoking all sorts of cool old memories of the best of times and the best of jams”, says singer Scott Board.
No exact date for the release has been set as of yet. More details to follow as they come available.
Meanwhile, the current lineup of CEREBUS featuring singer Scott Board, bassist Eric Burgess, original drummer Joby Barker with guitar duel Reid Rogers and Elio Romero is currently writing new material with plans to start recording soon.
