Hailing from Zagreb, rising Euro metal stars Sage have just signed a worldwide record deal with Rockshots Records for the release of their debut album Anno Domini 1573, which is being released on September 21, 2018.
The album is a concept album about the Peasants’ Revolt that took place in Croatia in the fourteenth century. The album encompasses themes of the battles between good and evil and honesty and greed. Sage delivers a mix of heavy, powerful and progressive metal, which the band blends to forge a unique but recognisable sound.
“The band name Sage means both the plant sage and ‘a wise old man'”, comments Enio Vučeta, guitarist and backup singer of the band, a living legend of the Croatian rock/metal scene. “We wanted to connect this to ourselves in a way because we are composed of several generations of Croatian musicians and we have great ambitions for our music to make a breakthrough in the world.”
Anno Domini 1573 has been co-produced by former Kamelot member Casey Grillo and mixed and mastered by Jim Morris at Morrisound Recording studio. It is available for pre-order in Digipak Deluxe edition CD+DVD. Watch the video for the track Treason below!
