Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of Sweden's Miasmal. According to a press release, the Gothenburg-based act caught Century Media's attention with the band's "uncompromising way of playing real, no-bullshit death metal. Theeir DIY attitude and previous releases (a demo, a 7" EP, and one studio album) have also gained them a constantly growing fan-base."
Philipp Schulte, A&R at Century Media Records, comments: "We are very happy about the signing of Miasmal. The current death metal underground scene is offering many excellent new and promising bands, but only a few have that certain edge that makes you feel there is much more to come. It's the combination of their music, style and attitude that makes Miasmal simply outstanding. When I listened to tracks like 'Kallocain', 'Toxic Breed' or the epic 'Chronicles' for the first time, I felt this band has a spirit most other bands are lacking."
Pontus Redig, guitarist and vocalist in Miasmal, comments: "We are happy to announce that we just signed a deal with Century Media! As fans of many of the label's releases and bands, we feel that we are in good company. The new cooperation offers lots of opportunities for the making of our next record which is something we are very excited about. We've just begun the writing process and plan to head to the studio during the winter to immortalize our 2nd album and Century Media debut." More...
Gothenburg based death metal band Miasmal signed a recording contract with Century Media Records. The band issued its self-titled debut release on April 15, 2011 through Dark Decent Records subsequent to the self-titled EP of a year earlier and the highly tauted self-titled demo in 2008. The band features drummer Björn and guitarist/vocalist Pontus, both from the Southern Lord Recordings artist Agrimonia.
No official press release has yet been issued as to whether the band is working on new material or whether the self-titled debut will receive a re-issue.
I’ve only heard half-remembered memories about this festival. I really had no idea what to expect about the stage lay-out, the area of town, the people, or the bar situation. As I walked down the hill to Sonar, I gradually saw the small bunch of metalheads walking in to see the first band Witchaven. I entered the main hall and followed the crude, hand-written signs explaining where the stage was in the dark, labyrinthine building. Entering into the main room for the first time was like stepping into a metal dream; coming from the hot, sunny outdoors to a cold, pitch black massive room with seemingly no end and seeing an awesome band already in progress with ultra bright flashing lights interrupting your vision and furthering the illusion of this chamber.

The Maryland Deathfest organizers report that "Sonar will be re-opening before MDF, and technically they already have."
As previously reported, the venue of the Maryland Deathfest was up in the air when Baltimore's Sonar nightclub failed to renew their liquor license and closed its doors.
The organizers futher commented: "These last couple of days have been incredibly confusing and stressful, but we are currently back to the regularly scheduled program. And don't worry, beyond plan B is a plan C, because that's how we roll. See you in a couple of weeks."
As such, the set times that were previously announced should now hold.
Here's the updated flier: More...
