Glasstone Records has announced the signing of MACHIAVELLIAN for a UK release of their latest album.
MACHIAVELLIAN is a five piece metal band from Lancashire (UK). Formed in 2006, the band’s inspiration for "The Impossibility Of Death In The Mind’s Of The Living" was coming from a town with no opportunities or potential, and the struggle to break away or be productive with it’s confines without losing hope and settling for the hand with which they were dealt. The record deals with the resulting anger and despair associated with such a scenario.
The mini-album was recorded at Foel Studios, Llanfair Caereinion, Wales, and produced/mixed by Chris Fielding (Napalm Death, Electric Wizard, Primordial). It was also mastered by legendary metal producer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir).
Since forming, the band has toured with the likes of Misery Index, Sikth, Dry Kill Logic, Job For A Cowboy, SSS and Bring Me The Horizon.

Skelmersdale, England's death-thrash outfit Machiavellian recently signed with Year of the Sun Records for the release of their upcoming debut four-song EP, "The Impossibility of Death in the Minds of the Living." The album will see release through the label on April 29th. Machiavellian marks the first international signing by the Canadian label.
"We couldn't be more proud to be part of the Year of the Sun roster," says Machiavellian bassist Ant Hurlock. "For a band from a small town that no one had ever heard of we have come a long way. It's amazing to see that our hard work is finally being recognized and we can only hope we continue to receive recognition both from the EP and from our upcoming live shows. I can't wait to see what people think of the EP and what people make of us as a band."
Recorded at Foel Studios in Wales with producer Chris Fielding (Primordial, Napalm Death, Raging Speedhorn), "The Impossibility of Death in the Minds of the Living" was mastered by Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir). The group's eclectic sound fuses together all the sub-genres of metal, death and thrash with hints of doom and stoner rock. The band's explosive live show has earned them high profile opening slots for Job For A Cowboy, Misery Index, Dry Kill Logic, Sikth, Skinlab and Bring Me The Horizon.
"Machiavellian really points to the future of our label," stated label president Chris Benn. "It's not that we're just excited to branch out into the European market, but we're also excited to have been able to find such a promising band. We look forward to working with Machiavellian for a number of years to come and we feel that North American metal fans will find the same kind of appreciation of their brand of metal."
Machiavellian is currently previewing demo tracks from their upcoming new EP on their MySpace page.
