BYZANTINE is back! This forward thinking heavy metal act from WV, known for their spectacular blend of musicianship with memorable, groovy riffs, has risen from the ashes after a 5 year hiatus. Upon forming, Byzantine quickly caught the attention of Lamb of God and went on to release three classic and critically acclaimed albums. In May, the band entered the studio for the first time in five years to create a brand new, self-titled album. The album is expected to be released Feb 26, 2013 on WV Snakepit Records and will most certainly be one of the most devastating records of the year.
