Hells Headbangers today announces the signing of Faithxtractor, and the first fruit of this union shall be Faithxtractor's third album, slated for release during the second half of 2017.
This third full-length album, tentatively titled "Proverbial Lambs to the Ultimate Slaughter," is now well into the tracking process at the band’s own Frequenscream Studios. Unconcerned with scene schemes and useless labeling tags, Faithxtractor will continue down the dark path set forth on previous releases while forever moving forward into darkened territory. The prime directive: sick riffs, metal & death.
"We are honored and very pleased to have the opportunity to release our next album through Hells Headbangers," says Ash Thomas. "Having worked with them personally on other projects, I've come to greatly respect their work ethic and dedication. We are extremely proud of the death metal we've created for album #3, and it's very assuring to have a label such as Hell Headbangers behind the coming onslaught!" More...

Razorback Recordings has issued the following announcement about an upcoming release from Ohio act FaithXtractor:
"Razorback Recordings is proud to be releasing the 2nd full-length album from FaithXtractor! They recorded one of the best debut death metal albums in 2008, and have now returned with their long-awaited 2nd album. We are thrilled to be releasing this masterpiece!"
Here are some words from the band itself: "FaithXtractor was spawned by Ash Thomas with the sole intention of playing savage Death Metal as an assault on the pathetic meat puppet human race. Now, nearly 7 years later, with the "old school death metal" tag being consumed, shat out, & spewed about repeatedly like every other tired labeling scheme, the FaithXtractor would like to tell you to 'CAST YOUR ASSUMPTIONS ASIDE...SHUT THE FUCK UP & HEAD BANG!' This musical entity was created as an outlet to voice thoughts & feelings on this ever crumbling existence, to channel our life-philosophy, & to praise the Metal essence that is inherently in our veins. Plain & simple...
"This new 11 song monster holds true to the vibe set forth on the previous releases while plunging ever further into heavily darkened territory. With a strong focus on real life horrors, infectious riffs, & haunting arrangements, 'The Great Shadow Infiltrator' will crush the weak as the FaithXtractor poisons the soul for the better. 'The Great Shadow Infiltrator' will be released in 2013 through the Cult Horror Label Razorback Recordings."
Further details on the release will be announced soon.
