Sanhedrin (UK) - Demo 2009
Sanhedrin was originally formed by Reece Holloway & Parmahn Azad, two like-minded individuals who wanted to explore their interests in Black & Death Metal. The group was formed in early 2009 in Huddersfield, England.
Initially Reece (Vocals & Keyboards) & Parmahn (Guitar, Bass & Drums) shared musical ideas which became the three songs featured on the first Sanhedrin Demo. This early work was recorded in Parmahn’s flat using basic equipment and was simply used to showcase the early material.
John Houghton and Dan Oldcorn were then recruited into the band on guitars and bass respectively. The band soon entered the studio to record their 2009 Demo, the first Sanhedrin material to feature a full line up of instrumentalists.
After several live performances, Dan left the band in late 2009 based on musical/creative differences and eventually joined death-thrashers ‘Merciless Terror’ and long-time friend of the band Tom Blakemore was brought in on bass guitar.
With Tom now on bass, the band played several more live performances before deciding it was time to start the writing and recording process for the band’s debut full-length album.
An incredibly lengthy home production effort then ensued as the band put some finishing touches on the recording phase and after several months of mixing and mastering the band released their full-length debut album ‘Salvation Through Sin’ on 29th November 2010 to critical praise.
Sanhedrin continued to play live shows around the UK to promote the record the album and has recently just completed their 2011 16 date UK-wide tour with Merciless Terror and in turn, has gained quite a name in the UK extreme metal scene.
With some new and more focused material, Sanhedrin re-entered the studio in mid 2011 to record their brand new 3-track EP entitled 'And On Into The Eternal Nether...Of Forgotten And Stricken Souls'. Released on 11th July 2011 for Free Download from the band's Facebook, the EP was met with enthusiasm and praise from the metal community and reviewers alike.
