Mithras Signs To Galactic Records

Following their departure from Candlelight Records earlier this year, the UK’s extreme metal duo Mithras decided to go it alone, sort of. Galactic Records label head Leon Macey just so happens to be one half of Mithras, responsible for writing and playing both drums and guitar for the critically acclaimed duo. Having experienced life as a band on a label such as Candlelight and ultimately parting ways due their inability to commit to a schedule of intensive touring having had persistent bad luck in finding a drummer to fill in live, signing to Leon’s own label for their next release made a lot of sense, for obvious reasons.

"I really enjoyed working with Candlelight, both with them reissuing our first two albums ’Forever Advancing...... Legions’ and ’Worlds Beyond The Veil’, not to mention our first release proper for them, ’Behind The Shadows Lie Madness.’ However, as a band, both Rayner (Coss - vocals / bass) and I decided that rather than enter into the gruelling task of starting up discussions with interested labels, we’d sign the band to my own label Galactic for our next release. It was a logical step to take - at least we know who we’re dealing with at Galactic, and they’re top notch guys, of course - lol!"

A Mithras release is scheduled for Autumn this year. Full details are set to follow shortly.

In related news, the band’s website, mithras.org.uk, has been completely overhauled. As well as featuring new galleries which span their near 10 years of existence, the site will soon contain extensive information about each of their releases.

All their current albums; ’Forever Advancing...... Legions’, ’Worlds Beyond The Veil’, and their current release, ’Behind The Shadows Lie Madness’, remain available through Candlelight Records.

Mithras is:
Rayner Coss: oratory / bass
Leon Macey: guitar / drums
