Dispute the Truth
Formed in the suburbs of Los Angeles, Cerberus began as four junior high school friends that all had a similar interest in metal. In May of 2000, the members of Cerberus first jammed together and there was immediate chemistry. They recorded a few demos throughout the first few years that circulated the local scene and gained them a devoted following. During the recording of their third demo, the band decided that splitting the vocals between themselves just wasn't cutting it; so they recruited ex-Crucible singer John Guettler, and started working towards a more brutal and melodic sound. In June of 2005, Cerberus released their first full length album through Hell and Death Records, entitled 'The Cage of Existence'. It defined their sound and was praised by metal press and radio across the country. Cerberus toured the west coast in support of the release of 'The Cage of Existence' and upon returning home they began writing for their next offering. 'What Have We Become?', a 5 song EP, was released in July 2006 and complimented with a full US tour with Year of Desolation (Prosthetic Records) and Forever in Terror (Metal Blade Records). Due to the great response and underground following they garnered with those two releases, Creator-Destructor Records signed them and released 'Dispute the Truth'. The band entered Castle Ultimate Studios with producer Zack Ohren (Light This City, All Shall Perish, Animosity) in January to record the effort, which consists of 10 crushing tracks of relentless melodic death metal. Cerberus plans on hitting the road for the remainder of the next year in support of the release.
