SPREADING DREAD is a metal band from Prague, Czech Republic. Their music combines the elements of thrash, death, rock, forming coherent concept works. The music and lyrics are supported by symbolic, pictures and videos. The band members introduce themselves as “people with various synergic psychic disorders, that form a complex musical body”.
The very beginning reaches to the year 2006, when Simon Kotrc (guitar) got himself into an alcoholic asylum and started to compose thrash-death music. A year later, Michal Pejznoch (bass) and Karel Safarik (drums) got interested in Simon’s compositions and they started to work on the album SANATORIUM. During the process Lukas Fujan (guitar, lyrics) and Miroslav Korbel (vocals) joined in and the band was complete.
The Album SANATORIUM, self-released in 2012, is a sort of autobiographic tale with a main character being built on the band members’ stories. A video clip followed, capturing a part of the story in song BASTARD BRAIN.
Right now SPREADING DREAD is releasing the second album AGE OF AQUARIUS, which focuses on civilizations facing constant degradation despite their modern achievements, all set on the background of inevitable cosmic cycles of creation and destruction. For this album a video DEVOLUTION was made and another one is planned for the song SALVIA DIVINORUM.
SPREADING DREAD has played only within the Czech Republic so far, from October 2015 they are starting to raid neigboring countries (Poland, Germany, Austria).
