Hackneyed Signs To Nuclear Blast Records

Nuclear Blast has announced the signing of south German death metal maniacs HACKNEYED.

"These five youngsters are just as convincing as MORBID ANGEL must have been when they released their first album back in the day," reads the press release. "Not only is the band already a bright star in the sky of extreme metal but is also the youngest band Nuclear Blast has signed ever since. Probably HACKNEYED are also the youngest death metal act on the planet as the average age of the band members is just 16 years (guitarist Devin being just 14 years old!), but already shredding and grooving as hell - mark these words!"

Being founded in 2007 the band has already achieved to play an amount of successful shows as well as draw attention from several bigger bands and also of Achim Ostertag (organizer of Germany's Summer Breeze festival and CEO of Silverdust Records), who presented the band to the deeply impressed Nuclear Blast staff that signed them right away.

The first neck breaker, "Gut Candy" (also included on the below linked trailer), has also been made available through the bands MySpace page.

Last but not least HACKNEYED also just joined the roster of Dragon Productions who will handle all live and booking duties.

HACKNEYED are more than ready to release their first audible massacre "Death Prevails," produced by Roger Grüninger and mastered by Achim Köhler, on July 25th and will also guest on several open airs in summer 2008. The bands has just been confirmed for the Summer Breeze Open Air.
