Candlelight Records Signs Krieg and Yaotl Mictlan

Candlelight Records confirms the recent signings of Krieg and Yaotl Mictlan. All three add to the English label’s growing American roster, a concentrated effort of the label the past several years. Currently celebrating is ninth year of US operation, the label opened US offices January 2001 with the release of its first album, Zyklon’s acclaimed debut. "World ov Worms," in early April, Candlelight continues its quest to deliver quality recordings by both new and established recording artists.

"The Isolationist" is the confirmed title for the sixth album from New Jersey-based Krieg. Main creator Imperial says, “it is truly an honor to get to work with a professional label at this point in Krieg’s career. 'The Isolationist' will be more experimental, uglier, and yet more beautiful than previous Krieg records.” The album will start production in early February at Volume Studios in Chicago. The record is tentatively planned for a July release.

Salt Lake City-based Yaotl Mictlan have completed recording of their second album currently planned for release in April. "Dentro del Mantro Gris de Chaae" showcases the band’s Mexican and Mayan culture (their name in the Mexican language of Nahuatl meaning “warriors from the land of the dead”). The band, originally discovered by Brujeria vocalist Juan Brujo, was formed by brothers Yaotl and Tlatecatl in 1998. The band plan to tour in support of the album throughout 2010.
