´VARIX "Fear of God"
13.07.

A small US-label recently re-discovered the 1995 demo tapes of the southern germany based metal band VARIX and asked for permission to release the old material.
Thus coming back together after more than 20 years the band decided to also write and record one brand new song to put on the release.
Sebastian "Basi" Roeder was in charge of recording, mixing and mastering for this new tune called "Fear of God" in his BACKYARD STUDIOS.
CD will be out shortly.
