Los Angeles based Metal band Athanasia has released the official music video for the lead single off their upcoming debut album, The Order Of The Silver Compass. This is the second music video release from the album, following the critically acclaimed “Spoils Of War“. Originally premiered on Metal Underground, “The Order Of The Silver Compass” was directed by renowned filmmaker Matt Zane and filmed at Modern Sector Studios in Burbank, CA.
“If you got hooked after your first dose of the potent heavy metal concoction that is ATHANASIA, then you should be ecstatic to know that your next fix is coming in the form of a speedball entitled “The Order of the Silver Compass” taken from our LP of the same name… Max out your volume knobs and prepare to thrash!!!” – Caleb Bingham (Guitar, Lead Vocals)
Athanasia is a power trio playing a highly original hybrid of classic arena/black/thrash metal styles. It was first formed by Caleb Bingham in 2004 under the name Ascension while he was still in high school. As a result of passing around the band’s early demos on the Sunset strip, he landed a gig with the then-forming Five Finger Death Punch in 2005. Upon being fired from the group in 2007 (due to his young age) he reformed the band a second time, recording several more unreleased demos and one EP at the behest of Roadrunner Records A&R Monte Conner. Largely due to that label’s merger with WMG, the band lost out on its chance to sign with them and was shelved yet again in 2010 while Bingham played a four year stint with Swedish death metal act Zonaria. Upon parting ways with them due to a leg injury sustained while playing with the group, he reformed the band a third time, recording its first full length release entitled The Order of the Silver Compass. This yet unreleased album is finally about to see the light of day under the new banner of Athanasia.
