The band Sarpa states, «The illusory mirrors of time and space have fractured…The sublunary cease!!!».
Sarpa was created to bend the laws of audible physics and more importantly, unchain the hearts of the fire born. Sarpa plays Black/Death Metal from the abyss and their latest effort is the album Soilvagus. The sole musician in the band is David Baxter with all instruments and voices. The track Triad Of Might,
Sarpa is rooted in Austin in Texas…Sarpa is a serpent ready to swarm the lands!While primarily embedded in the essence of black metal, Sarpa throws other ingredients such as progressive rock, acoustics, old school death/thrash, and some Afro/Latin rhythms into the pot.
Solivagus was written and performed (all instruments, vocals) by David Baxter (drummer of Plutonian Shore, ex-Skrew, ex-Škan) in various studios throughout Central Texas in 2019. The album was mixed and mastered by Tony Petrocelly of Trepan Studios.
Sarpa was created in 2018 when Baxter decided to move ahead with a solo record, after which a process of furious writing commenced. The dawning of this solo venture came subsequent to the performance of numerous shows/festivals across North America and Europe over the years with the aforementioned bands..
The journey will not end with the release of Solivagus though. Baxter plans on writing more Sarpa material for the next album, the purpose of which is to fracture the illusory mirrors of time and space!
