Cardiac Arrest Signs With Razorback

A foreboding covenant dripping with darkness and dread has been sealed that will bring together splatter metal label Razorback Recordings and the punishingly perverse Illinois act Cardiac Arrest.

2014 will now see to the unleashing of the band's fifth and most foul album to date, “And Death Shall Set You Free." Razorback Records comments:

"Formed deep in the black infamy-choked bowels of Chicago in the late ‘90s, Cardiac Arrest has been a known associate of Razorback’s for years and, while the two camps had bonded over their shared obsessions with all things horror and metal, they never worked together – until now!

"Releasing their four previous albums elsewhere, the fearsome foursome of Midwest metal maniacs continue their legacy of death metal brutality with 'And Death Shall Set You Free' and the ten cruel scythe cuts of horror-weltered cacoffiny offered therein, with such aural atrocities as 'There Is No Escape,' 'Bridge Burner,' and 'Rise! Part Man, Part Beast.'

"While the new album will be the catchiest yet, it will still be as unforgivingly heavy as a sledgehammer to the skull. And it is coming for YOU in the late Summer or early Fall of 2014 … You have been warned! ‘Til then, as those abominable gore-adorers who are Cardiac Arrest always proclaim … ROT FOREVER!"

Crimson Shadows Entering The Studio

Epic Canadian death power metallers and 2013 International Battle for Wacken winners Crimson Shadows of Toronto have announced that they will enter the studio next month to record their follow up to 2013's EP "Sails of Destiny" with Jonathan Lefrançois and Jee Gagnon at Silverwing Studios in Montreal. The record will be mixed by Eyal Levi of Audiohammer Studios.

As the winners of the 2013 International Battle for Wacken Open Air Festival in Germany, Crimson Shadows is fresh off a triumphant year and started 2014 strong with a recent first run in the United States with thrash band Battlecross. Known for a Canadian twist on epic power European metal, the band is also set to make an announcement that they are signing to an international record label who will release the new record this summer. The band commented:

"Our new songs show a progression of the band as we have been through a lot over the past few years. With a full length and an EP behind us we look forward to this new record and working with Jo and Jee at SilverWing Studios to make these songs truly come to life, and have Eyal provide the finishing touches," said drummer Cory Hofing.

I'm really looking forward to spending a couple weeks in beautiful Montreal to hammer out these new tracks and show everyone what we've been up to since coming back and winning the metal battle in Wacken." More...
