Sceptre, the legendary Thrash Metal band hailing from Mumbai, known for it’s originals such as “Nuclear”, “Charred” and “Wrath of God” made a roaring comeback earlier this year with the release of their second studio album “Age of Calamity”.
The band recently began a hunt for a new frontman after parting ways with their vocalist of 4 years, Samron Jude. The band is on the lookout for people who have a penchant for Thrash Metal and embody the presence and confidence of an ideal Metal frontman. Drummer Aniket says
We’ve been Thrashing for a long time, and this time we’ve raised the stakes. We want the new frontman to have that ‘wow’ factor that you’d expect from a band like Sceptre!
vocalists are encouraged to apply from all parts of India as long as they’re available to audition and jam with the band.
So far, Sceptre has received applications for auditions from people in Mumbai, Bangalore, Delhi and even from far away places such as Lucknow and Kolkata. Having auditioned over 30 musicians already, the hunt for a new Sceptre frontman still powers on.
Bass guitarist Janus Sayal states
We’re looking for someone who can come in with that raw 80’s Thrash energy, the grit, the power, the presence, it needs to be a total package, we’re not about to settle for anything less!
The band’s primary musical influences lie in the era of Classic Thrash, where bands such as Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer and Vader come to mind. There are no gender, age or location bars for the aspiring vocalists, but with the band making a switch back to Traditional Thrash vocals, it is required that the candidates come prepared.
To reach out to the band for an audition, please drop an email to firstname.lastname@example.org or contact band manager Dushyant (+918905177387) or Aniket (+919820711617) for further details.
