Maudlin of the Well Part with Dark Symphonies

Boston-based avant-garde metallers Maudlin of the Well have officially parted ways with label Dark Symphonies, and announced they'll no longer compose music within the heavy metal spectrum.

"Maudlin of the Well and Dark Symphonies have officially parted ways," explains a Dark Symphonies press release to DigitalMetal. "Having released three highly acclaimed CD's under the Dark Symphonies banner, including their 1999 debut My Fruit Psychobell...a seed combustible, Maudlin of the Well will not be releasing their new CD with Dark Symphonies."

"After much discussion over the past couple of months, the band has reached the conclusion that the time is right to pursue a different direction in the music industry, and that new direction is with a label that doesn't promote their releases in the progressive, extreme metal market. Even though the band was under contractual obligations to release their next two releases with Dark Symphonies, both parties felt that it was in the best interest to go our separate ways."

"Maudlin of the Well have already secured a new label, and will release their new as-yet-untilted CD on Zorn Records (i.e., the avantgarde recording artist John Zorn's label) sometime at the end of 2003, beginning of 2004. Everyone at DS wish Maudlin of the Well nothing but the very best as they take their astral sounds into new and uncharted vistas."

Presently, Maudlin of the Well plan to have their fourth album ready by mid-July. No word on studio name, album title or song titles was given on their official website. Stay tuned for more on Maudlin of the Well.
