Engel Sign With Steamhammer/SPV

Steamhammer/SPV has announced the worldwide signing of ENGEL, the Gothenburg, Sweden-based quintet featuring guitarists Marcus Sunesson (ex-THE CROWN) and Niclas Engelin (PASSENGER, ex-GARDENIAN, IN FLAMES), drummer Mojjo (RELEVANT FEW, DRACENA), vocalist Mangan Klavborn, and bassist Michael Håkansson (ex-EVERGREY).

Already touted as one of the "Best Unsigned Bands 2006" by the readers of Metal Hammer U.K. and crowned winners of Rock Hard Germany's "Demo Contest" 2006, ENGEL is set to take the metal world by storm. Hailing from Sweden's famous breeding ground for riffs and groundbreaking bands — Gothenburg — the members of ENGEL have years of combined experience and a uniquely mesmerizing heavy-as-hell melodic sound to take over the world's metallic hearts and minds.

Anders Fridén (singer of IN FLAMES) helped his old friend Niclas (both played together in PASSENGER) record demos and is now assisting in the production of the debut ENGEL album at Dug-Out Studios in Uppsala with Daniel Bergstrand (producer of IN FLAMES, MESHUGGAH). A fall release is expected.

Commented ENGEL in a statement: "Finishing and unleashing this beast upon the world is not only a dream come true for us, but the result of genuine dedication. You will hear it, see it and believe it. We are extremely satisfied with having Steamhammer/SPV on our side in this, as we have no other goal in sight than global domination."
