Being in a funeral doom metal band does not mean you can't have a sense of humor. Indeed, that's one of the messages the German horde Ahab showed through a comical set of photos via their Facebook page, and as the band has put it: "As music business is a dirty business find here an 'educational' comic how to better NOT sign a record deal." Not only that but they have also officially announced their contract renewal with Napalm Records.

Not much is known about their new album yet, but a new deal usually means a new album is coming. Recently, Ahab confirmed via Twitter that they are recording the first demos for the next album.

Max Riedler (The Captain of Napalm): "Thank you Ahab! I'm happy to be roadie for such an innovative band. I'm looking forward to navigate the seven seas with you on our Napalm cutter!"

Sebastian Münch (Steersman and A&R Manager): "We feel absolutely happy, proud and extremely doomed to announce, Ahab have renewed their partnership with Napalm Records! Ahab is arguably one of the most unique and original bands within the Napalm band roster! Everytime I listen to Ahab I feel I am getting sucked into the depth of an endless stormy ocean.... and I have to admit I quite enjoy that feeling!"

The last album was a bit of a let down for me so I'm not getting my hopes up too much.

Skilled negotiators.

Cute way to announce the news anyway.

I haven't listened to The Giant in so long, but I do remember being really underwhelmed by it. I'll listen to it again soon just to be sure but I'm hoping they capture the atmosphere of their debut regardless of the direction they take.

I'm not sure if they are able to do something as good as The Call Of The Wretched Sea again.

The Giant is my favorite, hope they continue that path. Parts III and IV of the comic are the best

Norz is a fucking rockstar.

I don't know if I'm excited for this, the band needs to go back to the dark and massive sound o their first album I think.

Probably one of the few people that found The Giant quite enjoyable. I'm also one of the few people that finds the debut a tad overrated though, so that could be why.

TCotWS is my fave extreme doom record ever released. Also The Giant was fairly decent, so I'm stoked for this.

Going from Divinity of Oceans (which is a Masterpiece) to The Giant was a big letdown. I have some high hopes
