These Are They Signs To The End Records

The End Records has issued the following statement about signing These Are They:

"Formed in May of 2008, THESE ARE THEY—a Chicago-based death metal band featuring vocalist Paul Kuhr (Novembers Doom), guitarist Steve Nicholson (ex-Novembers Doom), bassist Wiley Wells (Earthen) and drummer Sasha Horn (Trials)—entered the metal scene with an unrelenting aural assault.

Thirteen years after departing Novembers Doom, Nicholson reunited with Kuhr in 2008 in order to create something new and fresh. With the help of Wells, along with good friends Mike LeGros (Disinter, Earthen) and drummer Evan Berry, a musical style was chosen, material was written, and THESE ARE THEY recorded their debut EP, Who Manifest. Recorded, mixed and mastered at Belle City Sound with Chris Wisco at the helm, the EP instantly took on a life of its own.

Guitar driven, down tuned and powerful, the material is old school Chicago death metal with flashes of Bolt Thrower, Obituary, and Entombed and contains more headbanging hook than you can shake a fist at.

Paying tribute to the bands that have paved the way with their greatness, THESE ARE THEY will follow with their own take on a style of death metal that to this day has no equal in hook, power, and brutality."
