Cretin Signs To Relapse Records

Relapse Records have announced the signing of Bay Area grindcore trio, CRETIN. CRETIN (Dan Martinez: guitars / vocals, Matt Widener: bass, Col Jones: drums) take lo-fi to new heights and depravity to new lows. CRETIN's first official release as a band on the Relapse roster will be a split release with label-mates PIG DESTROYER, due out later this year. CRETIN is also rehearsing material for their first full-length album, slated for a late 2005 release via Relapse. Senses will be debauched. Eardrums, assaulted. Prepare for the cretanic grind invasion.

"We're very proud to be part of the Relapse roster," Martinez says, "a label that has represented grind and death metal for over ten years. We hope to make everyone proud." Widener, who also fronts political grindcore band, Citizen, says, "Relapse is the perfect home for Cretin; really, the only one I can imagine. I'm glad that they're giving us this chance." Jones, who still drums for thrash metal band, Dekapitator, admits, "I've been with Relapse for years, and I know Cretin can deliver the goods.
