Metal Blade Records have announced that they have just signed the Virginia based metalcore act WINTER SOLSTICE. Starting in 2001, WINTER SOLSTICE has secured an underground following by playing with bands such as NORMA JEAN, BETWEEN THE BURIED AND ME, and LIVING SACRIFICE. The band’s most recent EP was recorded at Cloud City Studios by Mike Hasty of WALLS OF JERICHO in January 2004. The band will head back to Cloud City Studios in Detroit, MI in October to start recording their debut full-length release that will be out on Metal Blade Records in the winter of 2005.
WINTER SOLSTICE drummer Duke had these comments: “We are very excited to be with Metal Blade. It’s exactly where we wanted to be. We are glad to be a part of a label with such great bands on their roster.”
