Cubby Control Records enthusiastically announces the release of San Francisco band REPTIEL’s Violent Sagas of the Ancients, their new mini-album epic of conflagration, conjuration, and invocation spanning the ages. Violent Sagas of the Ancients is REPTIEL’s sophomore effort, building on and expanding the Indie Psych Prog Rock of its predecessor, the eponymous REPTIEL, which coincidentally was described by FLABmag as like “sailing across the high seas encountering adventures, but in a Viking’s ship.”
Violent Sagas of the Ancients was recorded and mixed by Elton Cunniffe at Light Rail Studios in San Francisco, CA, during 2012, was mastered by Thee More Shallows and Fops headman David Kesler at his infomercial production suite in San Francisco, CA, and post-mastered by Jason Gonzales at the SoAr Sound Shack in San Francisco, CA.
REPTIEL is Alec Way (occasional collaborator with Hans-Joachim Roedelius), Brian Weaver (co-founder of The Cubby Creatures and The Cubby Preachers, and founder of Cubby Control Records), Jason Gonzales (one-time multi-instrumentalist with Thee More Shallows), and Jason Yakich (former lead guitarist of San Francisco conspiro rockers Thee Druggles).
In addition to promoting Violent Sagas of the Ancients REPTIEL is preparing to enter the studio again to record a fantasy rock epic they’ve written, tentatively titled Hobbitozz (The Land That Never Was).
