Outrage Signs To Metal On Metal Records For Release Of "Go To Hell"

Metal on Metal Records has issued the following announcement about signing a deal with Outrage:

"Our latest signing is also the oldest band on our roster. And definitely not for those who like their metal nice, melodic and with polished production. Formed in 1983 in Germany, Outrage belonged to the first wave of black metal (even though black/thrash with some elements of doom and death metal would be a more accurate description of their style) - their 4 demos from the '80s were influenced by Hellhammer, Venom, Celtic Frost, Sodom and Possessed.

"Peers of the big 3 of the German thrash, they never 'made it,' instead dwelling in the underground, shrouded in obscurity, while their name was passed on by the word-of-mouth along with awfully recorded (and yet so great!) demo tapes (I happened to have one of them, 'From Nightmares And Myths' from '86 since the late '80s and it's been one of the favourite demos in my collection). The band split in 1988... to return in 2004 and self-release 6 CDs. Now, back with the original vocalist Frank P. 'The Voice Of Hell,' they decided to re-record some of their early songs, going back to their roots."

Founder, songwriter and guitarist Udo F. also had this to say: "It was on the 13th of December 2010, on the 283rd band rehearsal since our reunion in 2004, when we decided to call it quits and play our last concert on the 26th of February 2011. On the 5th of February 2011 I got an e-mail from Italy... Jowita was her name and she was writing to order all Outrage stuff... What shall I say? She was also from a label, Metal On Metal Records... What started as a 'fan-band' contact quickly developed into a 'label-band' relationship. What a perfect timing, as we were planning to play our final show! What a great luck... it's incredible!"

Metal On Metal Records will release the band's new CD "Go To Hell" in October, 2011.
