Candlelight Records Drop Mithras

Leon Macey of the UK psychedelic brutal death metal masters MITHRAS has issued the following update:

"First off, we're no longer signed to Candlelight Records. Although we signed with them for a possible three albums (of which 'Behind The Shadows Lie Madness' was the first), Candlelight decided not to take up the option in our contract for what we're just calling 'album four' at the mopment, giving the reason that we don't tour. While we're not particularly disgruntled by this, it did come as a bit of a surprise given the fact we made them aware we weren't a touring band when they signed us (and we signed as a duo). However, the music industry has changed a lot over the last few years and it is definitely a different and harder market these days. Nonetheless, it was a great experience working with Candlelight on 'Behind The Shadows...' and we wish them all the best for the future. Work continues on album four as I type this..."

"But rather than start a hunt for a new record label and go through agonizing negotiations, we've taken the astoundingly obvious and logical step of signing to my own label Galactic Records for our next release, which is scheduled to be an extensive double CD package and celebrates the 10th anniversary of MITHRAS. More details to follow..."

"Behind the Shadows Lie Madness" was released in May 2007. The CD featured cover art by Dan Seagrave, who is known for his work with MORBID ANGEL, ENTOMBED, SUFFOCATION and many others.
