Noctural Art Productions, the record label run by Samoth (ZYKLON/ex-EMPEROR), has announced that they have signed extreme metal act, MINDGRINDER. The debut album, MindTech, will hit the streets during April 2004. MindTech was earlier issued for release via another label, but the band ended up terminating the contract, and shortly after a deal was inked with NAP. Since the recording of MindTech, the band has completed their line-up and are now a full hard working unit. MINDGRINDER, already experienced in the live arena, are now putting the final touches to their live set. The band has been given a slot at next year’s By:Larm – Norway’s biggest music industry event. It’s being held in Bergen from the 12th to the 15th February 2004. By:Larm combines music-related business conferences and workshops with showcases of up and coming bands.
The band has already written most of the material for the next album, and there’s a strong development in the band since the MindTech recording. The band is expected to start recording the follow-up already in the summer 2004. Check the band’s website for more info: www.mindgrinder.com
