New York death metal veterans, IMMOLATION, have inked a worldwide, multi-album contract with Nuclear Blast Records. Their first release for the label, the band’s eighth, will drop early 2010.
The band commented: “We are looking forward to working with Nuclear Blast, a classic label that has become one of the largest driving forces in metal today. We intend to have a new album out for early next year. Expect the new one to have some of the most dark and intense music we’ve ever put together!”
Jaap Wagemaker, A&R of Nuclear Blast Germany, stated: “Nuclear Blast is very proud to announce the signing of IMMOLATION! Few other bands have the ability to embody torment and suffering into their music in the way that IMMOLATION does. By fabricating the essence of agony within their sound, IMMOLATION immerses you into the depths of eternal damnation where you can actually hear them burning within the unquenchable flames. They are the type of band that really put the death back into death metal. We are so stoked to welcome IMMOLATION to the Nuclear family and look forward raising the fires of hell for you once again.”
Gerardo Martinez, Label Manager and A&R representative for Nuclear Blast USA, followed up: “Without sounding nostalgic, 1991’s Dawn Of Possession was definitely the soundtrack of my high school years. Very few bands from that era still make great records and are relevant, and that’s why IMMOLATION fit right in with our roster. We are very proud to have them on board!”
