Schwarzer Engel Signs With Massacre Records To Release EP, New Album

Massacre Records has checked in with the following announcement about inking a deal with Schwarzer Engel:

"We're happy to announced the signing of German dark metal band Schwarzer Engel! The band was formed in 2007 by the vocalist and guitarist Dave Jason. The live line-up includes Jens Lindmaier (guitar), Stefan Grießhammer (guitar), Bert Oeler (bass) and Marcel Woitowicz (drums).

"In 2010 they signed with Trisol Music Group and released their debut album 'Apokalypse.' In late 2010 Schwarzer Engel toured with Ahab and The Vision Bleak through Germany, Austria and the Netherlands. The tour was accompanied by the release of the band's EP 'Geister und Dämonen.' The second album 'Träume Einer Nacht' followed in April 2011.

"Schwarzer Engel played at several festivals in 2011 and 2012, such as the Wave-Gotik-Treffen, Hexentanz Festival, Castle Storm Festival and Dark Storm Festival. Schwarzer Engel's music can be described as modern dark metal with heavy guitar riffs, double bass attacks, catchy melodies and furious, deep vocals - all topped with orchestral arrangements.

"The band's poetic German lyrics are about human failures, impressions of nature, myths and the cruel reality of today's world."

Band leader Dave Jason commented about the signing with Massacre Records: "I'm happy to announce that Schwarzer Engel has teamed up with Massacre Records! The label has proven that it's doing a great job in supporting their artists. Massacre Records is the perfect partner for the release of Schwarzer Engel's upcoming album as well as the 'Schwarze Sonne' EP, which will be the album's harbringer."

Schwarzer Engel's "Schwarze Sonne" EP will be released in late May via Massacre Records, followed by the worldwide release of the band's third album "In Brennenden Himmeln" in late July.
