Heavy Artillery Announce Signing Of Sign Of The Jackal

The Heavy Artillery Records Myspace page issue the following statement today:

"Continuing to make their mark be known on the world of metal HEAVY ARTILLERY is pleased to announce the signing of Italy’s SIGN OF THE JACKAL. Fans of Enforcer, Cauldron, Ignitor, RAM, Gates of Slumber, Wolf and traditional heavy metal take note; when SIGN OF THE JACKAL come to fight for rock no prisoners will be taken!

Born in the frigid winter of 2007 in the Rovereto, Italy four friends were brought together by a mutual passion for classic heavy metal and horror movies. These four friends sought to create a band that paid homage to such 80’s metal legends as Warlock, Black Knight, Taist of Iron, Black Lace, Judas Priest and Lizzy Borden-that band became SIGN OF THE JACKAL. The core of the band was formed with Bob on rhythm/lead guitar, Sergio Mate on drums, Kill on bass and lead vocalist and front woman Laura on vocals. The bulk of gigs in their first year found SIGN OF THE JACKAL covering their favorite classic metal songs, opting to avoid the hits and instead keep things interesting with a set list full of rare b-sides and obscure album tracks. However, the band desired to write their own songs and have a fuller sound so in April 2008 rhythm guitarist Max was added to complete the line-up. With the line up complete, SIGN OF THE JACKAL quickly found their own sound, meshing together classic metal and horror influences to create a buzz for themselves amongst European underground metal fans. By Winter 2008 SIGN OF THE JACKAL’s debut two track demo, the aptly-named Haunted House Tapes, found its way across the Atlantic for American underground metal fans and ultimately to HEAVY ARTILLERY who proudly welcomes them to their roster of exclusive artists."
