Sonne Adam Signs To Century Media Records For The Release Of "Transformation"

Century Media Records has signed a record deal with Israel based old school death metal band Sonne Adam, who will unleash the debut album “Transformation” on April 4th, 2011 in Europe.

Jens Prueter (Head Of A&R, Century Media Records Europe) commented: "Back in 1991, Century Media Records released the groundbreaking debut albums by Asphyx, Grave, Morgoth and Unleashed as well as the second album of Tiamat. It was the year death metal changed the metal world and thousands of bands were founded in garages around the world. 20 years later we are proud to sign a young band from Tel Aviv, Israel that knows the meaning of death unfortunately better than most of us. Sonne Adam mix the old doom/death of early Paradise Lost and technical insanity of early Morbid Angel with a fresh passion and raw energy that reminds me of the hunger and dedication I heard in the aforementioned debut albums 20 years ago, without sounding retro. Welcome to a new chapter of Century Media death metal!"

Sonne Adam instrumentalist Davidov states: “We didn't imagine that we will receive so much attention when we wrote the album a year and a half ago, when the 'Armed With Hammers' EP wasn't even released yet. Hell, we didn't even know back than how strong the old school death metal scene will be again. We never were 'label hunters' so it was a big surprise. Actually, being from Israel and signing to a big label is more crucial than you think as we are very isolated from our crowd. No matter what, our heart is in the underground. Always was and always will be! If someone thinks that we are selling out he can go f**k himself. We are very pleased with signing with Century Media.”
