2018 release. With Countersighns, Necrytis by former Onward main man Toby Knapp already had a deal with Pure Steel Publishing. Now, not even one year later, the second output Dread en Ruin is already finished and Necrytis join the main roster of talent on Pure Steel Records! The influence of Onward can be heard everywhere, although Toby provides his work here with an even more progressive and playful mark. Drummer, vocalist, lyricist Shane Wacaster and Knapp have created an album that not only salutes the obvious influences of Fates Warning and Queensryche but gives a nod towards early NWOBHM era Def Leppard and even vintage Jethro Tull!
