Bands in Deathrock Around The World: Secular Plague

Secular Plague has been created in January 2012 by Saphire, who used to be the bass player of the Parisian deathrock band Sleeping Children from 2003 to 2005.

Only four months after giving life to Secular Plague, Saphire started to record 12 songs all alone, singing and playing all instruments, following a strict “Do It Yourself” ethic.

Secular Plague first, unnamed album was released on May 17, 2012 on both Flehmen Records (CD) and Zorch Factory Records (Free download).

With the addition of Randy (guitar) and Dick (drums) the band recorded a new album named “Death for Sale”. Even more angry than the first album, “Death for Sale” explores themes of animal rights, consumption, freedom and social norms. The album has been downloaded more than 500 times in only 3 months and received enthusiastic reviews from magazines and blogs such as Maximum Rocknroll, Mick Mercer and The Screever.

Secular Plague has been comparated to bands such as T.S.O.L, Rudimentary Peni, Voodoo Church, and the Circle Jerks.
