Jaldaboath Inks Deal With Napalm Records

Medieval folk metallers Jaldaboath have issued the following update about signing to Napalm Records:

"Mighty brethren hordes, I scribe to you on the business and strategies of our war. As we all know, the field of battle is in constant flux with the ebb & tide of fortune, and further-more is not a cost-free venture. Even the mighty Knights of Jaldaboath are susceptible to the whims of the crown and the usurer in these times of high austerity!

"Thus, in planning campaigns of war and victory, truces must be made and the rivalries and mistrust of the past must be set aside for the greater good of Hammering Heraldic Metal, enabling us to mount sieges and battles and progress towards total victory over the Wyvern’s minions.

"From behind the walls of Rhydian, we received a message by carrier pigeon from our distant Teutonic cousins Napalm records: 'all misunderstandings to end. Stop. We admire the length of your swords. Stop. The jingle-jangle of Jaldaboath must never stop. Stop. Join us for greater victory. Stop. (message ends)'

"Ponder did we this proposal, for many unexpected things do come to pass in these strange and poverty-stricken times. For instance, just look at the marrying of the Meek and the Mightily Cruel in our very own houses of parliament, or the grabbing of groats of the Witch of Moulsecoomb, or even the hastily fashioned pig-iron candelabra of the mongers of Oxfordshire. For sure, these are strange days indeed!

"Thus it was, a secret meeting was held by our sect in the crypts of our unimposing yet mighty castle, and we decided that in order to pursue the path of the armed troubadour, we must now submit all our powers beyond this isle to the will of the mighty army of the Teutonic Knights of Napalm Records - who will embark on a global campaign of releasing our debut album 'The Rise of the Heraldic Beasts' to the unsuspecting masses in both Europe (27th of September) and the new world (date to be confirmed) ! 'Tis sure that this will greatly contribute to raising a far larger army of Bishop Bashing warriors to fight for our just cause!

"As a result, all our own stock of 'The Rise of the Heraldic Beasts' CD (pressed early this year as a limited edition run of 500 copies) - will only be available until our remaining munitions run out (to become collectable heirlooms to be passed down the generations!). And soon the smoke will rise as the smithies of Eisenerz fire up the furnaces to manufacture this metal missal of hymns in greater number and the colours of Jaldaboath shall rise up the pole of Leopoldstein! So let it be trumpeted that a small victory has been claimed on all sides:

"1) Napalm Records benefit from adding our highly-skilled masters of the minstrel metal craft to their mighty Ostrich legions (Alestorm, Falkenbach, Kampfar, Summoning etc…)

"2) The knights of Jaldaboath exchange their hay-cart for a siege engine with which to launch larger campaigns further afield and consolidate our forces to defeat the foes of Hammering Heraldic Metal.

"3) The hard-core followers and pilgrims of Jaldaboath whom have supported us thus far, now have a limited edition and soon-to-be collectable item to be treasured for eternity!

"Therefore, we look forwards to a continuing mutually beneficial and profitable pact with our warrior-cousins in Austria. The Orders are now one! Lend the strength of your sword to the continuing crusade of Jaldaboath! May the mighty griffin bless your beeswax!"
