PRESS RELEASE JAN 18

Britain’s RETURN TO THE SABBAT will film their upcoming headline gig in London for release as part of a limited-edition DVD package later this year. Also set to appear at the March 22 show at The Garage are BAL-SAGOTH, BLOODSTREAM and MITHRAS.

RETURN TO THE SABBAT are currently in intensive negotiations with the up-and-coming Nottingham-based TB Records and “fully intend that this collaborative release shall prove to be something truly unique for the fans of this historic music,” according to the band’s official web site. The DVD, which at present has a working-title of “So It Is Done!” , will feature live versions of the now-legendary material from SABBAT‘s “History Of A Time To Come” and “Dreamweaver” albums. It will also include some previously-unreleased vintage works, on-stage special-guests, in-depth interviews and candid backstage footage of the band “at play.”

‘RETURN TO THE SABBAT’ DISBANDED

MARTIN forms THE CLAN DESTINED

What is currently going on with Return To The Sabbat? Will you continue with this project?

MARTIN:

No, not anymore. This time I’m really working full-on with The Clan Destined. It takes up too much of my time at the moment, and it’s very important for me to be writing new music now. I did a good break for two years, when I left Skyclad, and I played the old Sabbat tracks, which was really good fun. We had a lot of fun doing it, but I think the time is now to move on to the new band, to The Clan Destined. We have a live recording from a show in London, we did it at the club called The Garage, which we hope to release in a limited edition, maybe on the website again, so if any of the real fans didn’t get a chance to see Return To The Sabbat live, they can buy a live CD.
