It came as a shock to many in the metal underground when cult U.S. heavy metal band from North Carolina CEREBUS was announced this weekend to play ‘Legions of Metal’ Festival’ 2017 in Chicago. The news of the band’s return spread quickly around the globe through social media and was met with much excitement by fans who had almost given up hope that they would ever see the band surface again.
For years the name Cerebushas been highly regarded in the scene and their ‘Too Late to pray’ album greatly praised by fans and critics alike.
This spring of 2017, working closely with the members of Cerebus, Heaven and Hell Records plan to re-issue the full Cerebuscatalogue as two separate CD releases. All material will be re-mastered from the best possible sources available.
Including the 1986 full-length ‘Too Late to Pray’, 1987 ‘…Like a Banshee on the Loose’ EP, the very limited ‘Regression Progression’ EP from 1991, and the never before heard last songs recorded with guitarist Chris Pennel in the early 2000s.
