Century Media Records has announced that they have signed Swedish metal legend, Dan Swanö (EDGE OF SANITY, INFESTDEAD, NIGHTINGALE, BLOODBATH).
Dan Swanö comments about the signing:
“It’s been 23 years since I signed my first ever record-deal, but never before have I been this excited…I have now signed with Century Media Records!
“I bought the first release from Century Media back in 1989, and it is amazing to see how much the label has grown over the years.
“After working with CM for a few compilation CDs and for two and a half albums with BLOODBATH, I knew it would be the perfect home for me whenever I felt like returning to the recording-industry as a performer again.
“And now…I am back! With a vengeance!!!”
The first release will be his newly founded metal outfit WITHERSCAPE, which sees Dan teaming with another talented multi-instrumentalist, Ragnar Widerberg.
Swanö comments about the upcoming WITHERSCAPE album:
“I have just completed the final mixes of the first album from my new project WITHERSCAPE.
Fans of my ‘Moontower’ album and the catchier parts of EDGE OF SANITY won’t be disappointed!
I sing, both clean and growl, play drums and keyboards. Ragnar Widerberg plays all guitars & bass and has co-written almost all the tracks with me.”
