Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of Sweden’s Miasmal. According to a press release, the Gothenburg-based act caught Century Media’s attention with the band’s “uncompromising way of playing real, no-bullshit death metal. Theeir DIY attitude and previous releases (a demo, a 7″ EP, and one studio album) have also gained them a constantly growing fan-base.”

Philipp Schulte, A&R at Century Media Records, comments: “We are very happy about the signing of Miasmal. The current death metal underground scene is offering many excellent new and promising bands, but only a few have that certain edge that makes you feel there is much more to come. It’s the combination of their music, style and attitude that makes Miasmal simply outstanding. When I listened to tracks like ‘Kallocain’, ‘Toxic Breed’ or the epic ‘Chronicles’ for the first time, I felt this band has a spirit most other bands are lacking.”

Pontus Redig, guitarist and vocalist in Miasmal, comments: “We are happy to announce that we just signed a deal with Century Media! As fans of many of the label’s releases and bands, we feel that we are in good company. The new cooperation offers lots of opportunities for the making of our next record which is something we are very excited about. We’ve just begun the writing process and plan to head to the studio during the winter to immortalize our 2nd album and Century Media debut.”

May 10 – Czech Republic, Breclav @ Piksla Kafé
May 11 – Czech Republic, Prague @ 007 Strahov

Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of Morbus Chron from Sweden. The label commend, “Often described as a perfect mix between Autopsy and Carnage, Morbus Chron clearly stands out as one of the most talented and promising bands among all of the new traditional death metal acts that have been popping-up in the scene for over 3 years now.”

Morbus Chron added: “Always expect the unexpected. Morbus Chron are thrilled to join the ranks of Century Media Records. We know that with greater assistance and sturdier tools, the more clearly we can focus our attention solely on the music. So it is with big smiles that we ink this deal tonight. To keep the momentum going, we’re entering Gutterview Studios in March/April to record our first 10″ EP. Expect to have us around for a while.”

Jerry Maréchal, A&R at Century Media Europe comments: “Coming from Sweden without sounding like the 9265465th clone of ‘Left Hand Path’ Entombed is not a sinecure, to say the least. What Morbus Chron has been achieving for more than 3 years and their first demo tape is far more impressive as the band manages to merge varied and classic influences ranging from US death metal to Swedish and Euro death metal with their own very personal conceptions, be it musically or aesthetically. The result is an intense and fascinating traditional death metal act. Period.”

As previously mentioned, Morbus Chron will soon record new tracks for a 10″ vinyl to be released at the group’s first live appearance in Germany at the Hell’s Pleasure festival July 20th and 21st, 2012 in Pößneck, East Germany along with label-mates Sonne Adam and Necrowretch. Later this year, the band will start writing the follow-up to the first album entitled “Sleepers In The Rift,” which received an outstanding 9 out of 10 points in German Rock Hard magazine.
