Indie Recordings has announced the signing of Athens, Greece band Menea. Mencea delivers groove oriented, intense modern metal that bends the listener's perception of the various genres of extreme music. "Their music oscillates in between fast, aggressive moods, melodic hooks, and is executed with punishing precision," according to the release. "Big and spacey melodies, over raging riffs and extreme drumming, ear-grinding vocals, and atmospheric passages, demonstrate the band's songwriting skills and technical prowess."
The band's pre-production demos reached the hands of Daniel Bergstrand (Meshuggah, In Flames, Soilwork, SYL etc), who instantly expressed his interest in taking up mixing duties on their debut album.
With two upcoming producers in their ranks, Mencea entered 210 Studios in Berlin, Germany, with their own Stamos Koliousis and Vangleis Labrakis taking up engineering and production duties on "Dark Matter, Energy Noir," which was later mixed by Daniel Bergstrand, at Dug Out Studios, in Uppsala, Sweden.
Finally, mastering was done by the legendary mastering engineer, George Marino (Metallica, Iron Maiden, AC/DC, etc), at Sterling Sound Studios in New York.
The album will come with a free bonus DVD with their amazing live-show from K17 in Berlin at the INDIE RECORDINGS LABELNIGHT during POPKOMM 2008.
