Mercury Tide Signs To Limited Access

Limited Access Records has issued the following announcement about inking a deal with Mercury Tide:

"Limited Access Records is proud to announce the signing of the melodic metal band Mercury Tide, the new main band of former Angel Dust singer Dirk Thurisch. Beside the record deal for the new album 'Killing Saw,' which will be probably released next spring, Mercury Tide signed a publishing deal with Limited Access Publishing / BMG Rights Management, too. Mercury Tide's current line-up is Dirk's old friend and companion Carsten Rehmann (Unchallenged Hate) on drums, who produced the new album in his CKB Studio in Essen Germany. On keyboards is Sim Reaper and the new bass player is Christian Pohlmann. In the past both played together at the graverockers The Spook."

Limited Access Records label manager Torsten Wohlgemuth also commented about the signing:

"We are very happy about the collaboration with Dirk Thurisch and MERCURY TIDE. The new album is a killer and will not capture only the fans of the debut 'Why?.' Dirk pulled out all the stops. The melodies are shaping directly into the metal heart, catchy riffs and of course his distinctive voice which we all have missed for such a long time."

Dirk Thurisch is also glad about the new record and publishing deal and has got a message for his fans: "Hey folks! We are very happy about the collaboration with Limited Access Records, too. The work makes a lot of fun and we have many goals to reach. First of all we have recorded the new album “Killing Saw“ for you and now we can’t await to present it to you. Live we will have some exciting surprises. For old Angel Dust and our Mercury Tide fans we will perform some old classics. Thank you for being so patiently for such a long time and in return we have a great album for you. It has been worth waiting and I cannot await to see you all back on tour again!“
