New CD:  "The Serpentine Deception", 5 songs of experimental brass metal.   

  THE SERPENTINE DECEPTION is the follow up to the acclaimed debut EP "Final Dying Breath", and it features a full brass section that includes live trombone, trumpet, tuba, euphonium, and cimbasso, and more pronounced timpani integrated into Extreme Metal.  The music has evolved and progressed into a more intense exprience, all done on a shoestring budget to create a new sound never heard before in the underground heavy metal world. 

THE SERPENTINE DECEPTION CD features 3 songs of Brass Metal with vocals and 2 unique instrumentals. 

Here are some words from the critics: 

"Once in a while, there comes a band that simply cannot be nailed under one specific sub genre of metal. Though the overall sound of the band can be broadly classified under one major sub genre, it often ends up not doing any justice to the finer nuances in the band’s music. Markradonn is one such rare breed, where though I can call them a death metal band, that single term cannot help me to describe every aspect of their music. This band draws influence from a wide array of sub genres and has come up with a palatable combo of all such influences."

"This is true symphonic metal as the band makes use of unconventional instruments like timpani...and a full brass section to create something that sounds cinematic, dark and brutal at the same time."

-Top Discovery 2013
Shrivatsan Ragavan, Axis of Metal

"These guys’ mission is to redefine heavy music by any means necessary. Well folks the game changer is here! This is just a sampling of what’s to come...They boast a full time brass section and timpani player, also hand percussion and aboriginal instruments- and it works."

-#4 “Best EP 2013”
Bob Williams, Kingdom Promotions

-for our biggest supporters, we will list you in our "hall of fame" of our next hard copy release!

And more to come!

This is a great way to be part of our "Brotherhood of Markradonn" and support an underground band working hard to create something a little different.  We have a very close-nit fanbase and we love every single one of our fans as if they are family.  That's what this is about.  We'd rather have 100 great fans who love us than 10,000 casual fans who couldn't care less about what this means to us.  Markradonn is about creating music, first and foremost, and about bucking the trend to do something unique to us.  Your support means that we will be able to continue this journey, and the next step is our first full album, CEREMONIAL ABNEGATION PART 1:  EXCORIATION OF THE FLESH, which has been several years in the making. 

Without your support, none of this is possible!  This means that you are not just buying a CD or a t-shirt, but you are quite literally part of the process that brings all this to life.  It is very rare that a fanbase can have a direct connection to a band on such a deep level, and we honor and welcome you to join us on this quest. 

Remember, the more you donate, the more we can create!

And with every donation, goal reached, or after a large amount of shares, we will release a new picture, video, or add a new "reward" to our rewards packages!

Special thanks to Anthony Harvey, the "Harvestor of Sound"  for being such a huge part of the production.
