German Thrash Metallers Dew-Scented have signed a European deal with Metal Blade Records for the release of their upcoming, still untitled new studio album.
The band comments the signing as follows: "We are happy to finally be able to announce that we have just signed a new deal with Metal Blade for Europe! We have known the European staff at Metal Blade for many years already and considering the label's massive history in Metal as well as the fact that their current repertoire includes several cool bands that we have toured with throughout the years like Amon Amarth, Cannibal Corpse or God Dethroned, we look forward to this new co-operation and are excited about the release of our next album, which we will be recorded in the coming weeks."
Andreas Reissnauer of Metal Blade Europe adds: "Dew-Scented is a driving force in European Thrash Metal. A band that delivered excellent records through the years and that is always giving 110 % on stage. Being fans and friends of the band since day one we are excited to finally be able to work with Dew-Scented in the future. The best is yet to come!"
Dew-Scented are entering Soundlodge Studios in Northern Germany in February with producer Jörg Uken (God Dethroned, Sinister, etc.), who has previously engineered the band's latest album Incinerate in 2007, to record their long-awaited new studio album. A release date is planned for May 2010.
A few weeks ago it was reported that Dew-Scented signed with Metal Blade Europe (see above), and now the band signed a North American record deal with Prosthetic Records. Here's the official press release:
"Prosthetic Records is proud to announce they will be releasing Dew-Scented's new album in North America. The effort entitled, Invocation, which was recorded by Jörg Uken at Soundlodge Studios (God Dethroned, Sinister, Despondency), is due out on May 25th. Invocation also marks the first appearance of drummer Marc-Andree Dieken (ex-Obscenity), and guitar team Michael Borchers and Martin Walczak, alongside long term members, vocalist Leif Jensen and bassist Alexander Pahl.
Leif Jensen commented on the signing: "Dew-Scented are honored to announce that our new album Invocation will be released via Prosthetic Records in North America. The label's dedicated staff, their outstandingly classy and pretty open-minded musical taste for all things extreme as well as the quality work delivered for cool bands like Lamb Of God, Gojira, Skeletonwitch, All That Remains or Beneath The Massacre make us happy and proud to be teaming up with them as new partner for our upcoming releases! We look forward to unleashing Invocation upon the thrashing masses in North America soon!"
