Paindivision Signs Japanese Record Deal with Soundholic Records

PAINDIVISION has announced that they've signed a deal with Soundholic Records in Japan. Alongside label mates such as Hatesphere and Soilwork, Soundholic have built a reputation as one of the most respected metal labels in Japan.

The band comments on the deal: “We are very happy to be releasing through such a well respected company like Soundholic. The Japanese metal fans have shown strong support for the band on our 2007 tour and the current plan is to head back to Japan in support of the new album in 2009.”

Soundholic will release the Japanese version of the album with a special bonus track. The featured track will be "Like Hell" a cover of Japanese metal legends Loudness.

Stu (guitarist) comments “I have always been a big fan of the guitarist from Loudness, Akira Takasashi, he’s one of the most underrated guitar players and has influenced and entire generation of players. In Japan he’s a god, so this was a test from a players perspective for me and we had a great time recording it. We performed the song live on our final show at Takamatsu in 2007 and it seemed the perfect choice for the new record.”

“One Path” was recently released in Australia by Riot Entertainment in October this year. “One Path” signals a return to high powered shred metal while remaining true to the classic metal roots of WASP, Motorhead and Black Sabbath.

The release is scheduled in Japan for February 2009. Check paindivision.com for all new song samples and news.
