Secular Plague has been created in January 2012 by Saphire, who used to be the bass player of the Parisian deathrock band Sleeping Children from 2003 to 2005.
Only four months after giving life to Secular Plague, Saphire started to record 12 songs all alone, singing and playing all instruments, following a strict “Do It Yourself” ethic.
Secular Plague first, unnamed album was released on May 17, 2012 on both Flehmen Records (CD) and Zorch Factory Records (Free download). Since its release, the album have been downloaded more than 500 times and received enthusiastic reviews from independant zines and blogs.
With the addition of Randy (guitar) and Dick (drums) the band recorded a new album named “Death for Sale”. Even more angry than the first album, “Death for Sale” explores themes of animal rights, consumption, freedom and social norms.
Secular Plague has been comparated to bands such as T.S.O.L, Rudimentary Peni, Voodoo Church, and the Circle Jerks.
