Svolk Signs To Napalm Records

Norway's Svölk has issued the following announcement about inking a record deal with Napalm Records:

"After hibernating the last months, the battle bear rockers of Svölk are back, and this time with heavier weapons on their side: Napalm. The band have just signed a deal with the Austrian record company Napalm Records, and are now in the same cave as Monster Magnet, Brant Bjork, Alestorm, Stuck Mojo and Trail Of Tears, to name a few.

"We are proud to sign the contract with Napalm Records, a respected label with people who knows and loves metal. We are looking forward to spread the gospel of the battle bear together, and it's no secret that Svölk loves the smell of napalm in the morning, says the band in a press release.
