Latest 7th Plague News
Below is our complete 7th Plague news coverage, including columns and articles pertaining to the band. Some articles listed may be indirectly related, such as side projects of the band members, etc.
One of Metal Blade Records' recent signings, Seventh Plague, comprised of 5 seventeen year-old musicians out of Streetsboro, OH, recently changed their name to Forever In Terror as another band in the US had already trademarked the name. As the band states "Forever In Terror was a name we kicked around for quite some time so finding out we had to legally change our name was actually a blessing in disguise. Forever in Terror was a title of one of our older songs plus it's all over the demo artwork, and we had been asked on several occasions if that was the band name. I guess, in the end, things work out the way they should."

Los Angeles melodic thrash/death metallers CERBERUS have uploaded another track entitled 'The Gates Of Mercy' from their latest offering, The Cage Of Existence on their MySpace page at www.myspace.com/cerberus.
The band's debut CD, The Cage Of Existence was released in June 2005 through Hell and Death Records. Cerebus are currently in the studio recording a six song E.P., titled What Have We Become?, due for release on Hell and Death Records in mid-July. The tracklisting will be revealed soon.
This is the group’s last record with Hell And Death, and they will be shopping around for other labels. Interested parties can contact their manager at Jordan@churchofthe8thday.com. Plans for a full US tour with YEAR OF DESOLATION (Prosthetic Records) and 7TH PLAGUE in August are underway to support the release and dates will be announced soon.
7th Plague have accepted an offer from Metal Blade Records for a four-album recording contract. The band will be signing the record deal on Wednesday, February 8th. The band is extending an invitation to all interested press to come to the signing.
7th Plague came into full form in July of 2004. All of the members are currently 17 years old, still in high school and have made huge advances with their music and talents in less than two years. In a short amount of time the band has performed with bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, DevilDriver, The Haunted, Byzantine, All That Remains, The Agony Scene, 3 Inches of Blood, Children Of Tragedy, Still Remains, and others.
Recently, the band completed a demo with Hardcore Marketing in house-producer Don Debiase (Gatlin, APG). The band then had their Manager Neil Sheehan from HM, Inc. shop the demo to several record labels. In October of 2005 the band learned through Sheehan that Metal Blade was putting an offer in on the band. In January 2006 the band received initial copies of their negotiated contracts and accepted the mutually agreed upon terms. The band will sign the official agreement alongside Manager Neil Sheehan and their respective parents on Wednesday February 8th during a dinner at Westlake, Ohios Dave and Busters.
