3 Inches Of Blood - Sign With Century Media Records


Century Media Records press release

One of the biggest defenders of traditional heavy metal, 3 Inches Of Blood, has crafted a new album that is soon to be hailed as the gospel of all things heavy. Century Media Records is proud to welcome these metal warriors to its worldwide family roster and fans can expect their massively anticipated new full-length release this fall.

Cam Pipes (vocals) further comment: "Ever since our departure from our previous label, Century Media has been in the forefront trying to get us to sign with them. No other label showed as much enthusiasm and belief in our band as they did. Right from the start we all got a great feeling from the whole Century Media team. We feel comfortable with the vision they have for us and are confident they have the necessary tools and motivation to help us in the ways our previous label didn't. We can't wait to unleash this new material upon the masses."

3 Inches Of Blood entered Seattle's London Bridge Studios to commence the recording process in mid April with renowned producer Jack Endino (High On Fire). The group took a break from the studio for a slew of high profile shows with genre leaders Slipknot and stay tuned to www.myspace.com/3iob for video updates and studio reports.

Cam Pipes further states: "The show with Slipknot were absolutely amazing. Any band would be fortunate to get to play in front of their crowd and because we are such a different band than Slipknot. This was an excellent opportunity for us to put ourselves in front of people who have never heard us before and make some new fans. Obviously, Joey Jordison (Slipknot drummer), our friend and past producer, had a part in getting us on these shows and we are massively grateful to him and everyone else that made it happen."

Born out of a love for pure metal, weaned on a diet of fantasy and mythology, 3 Inches Of Blood have been slaying the infidel for nearly a decade. In that time, they've released three albums and splattered the ground with crimson streaks while on tour with such acclaimed acts as Satyricon, The Black Dahlia Murder, Motörhead and Cradle Of Filth, just to name a few. These are mighty accomplishments for dedicated warriors from Vancouver, British Columbia, a region that's not exactly the Camelot of heavy metal. With their last album, "Fire Up The Blades", they have surpassed even their own manly exploits, crafting a number of undeniable anthems that crash, rip and roar like a Medieval skirmish.

3 Inches Of Blood demonstrate that the best way to stay ahead of the heavy metal curve is to write music that comes from the heart and sounds nothing like the horde of bands tapping into the latest trends. To that end, they draw fuel from their favorite artists, including Judas Priest, Mercyful Fate, UFO, Rainbow and Enslaved and compile it all into their own lethal potion.

In 2009, 3 Inches Of Blood raises the chalice another notch leaving their definitive mark on the metal genre.

Yep, Already knew that.

Yeah, them signing with Century Media has been in the rumour mill for quite some time, and I figured a new album was going to be announced sometime soon.....but Jack Endino?! YES! If he does half as good a job he did on High On Fire's Death Is This Communion, it'll be fan-fucking-tastic.

Excuse me while I go wipe the drool off my shirt.

EDIT: Just remembered he also produced Toxic Holocaust's "An Overdose Of Death..." I don't think its a coincidence that most of these bands he works with start shitting gold-nuggets after hes done with them.

I love 3iob, but i suppose its ironic (or maybe just stupid) that a band that always insists they are true, traditional metal is playing shows with slipknot..

Haha yeah, I feel the same way, but they are awsome. But they are true you know. The only reason why they tour with slipknot is so they can slay an enemy of metal in it's sleep. "Enemies of metal, your death is out reward." Don't forget to quote your 3iob bible.

That or they just don't give a shit. I think a lot of the promoters try and push them like that, but in the end they're just a bunch of cool stoner-guys who just like heavy metal.
