Athanasia Band To Release Debut Album, ft Members of Five Finger Death Punch, Sebastian Bach and Murderdolls

Los Angeles power-trio Athanasia is a new group featuring former members Five Finger Death Punch, Sebastian Bach, and Joey Jordison’s Murderdolls. Founded in California by veteran guitarist/vocalist Caleb Bingham under the band’s original name Ascension. The bands’ early demos landed Caleb a slot with the first incarnation of Five Finger Death Punch in 2005. Leaving that band in 2007, Bingham continued to write under the name Ascension, recording several more unreleased demos (and one EP) at the behest of then Roadrunner Records A&R, now Nuclear Blast Entertainment impresario and tastemaker Monte Conner (Sepultura, Slipknot, Type O Negative, Machine Head, Fear Factory). Now Athanasia is ready to strike with their debut full-length The Order Of The Silver Compass on March 15 via Seeing Red Records and Rock of Angels Records. New music to follow soon, but check out the album details.
