CANDLELIGHT RECORDS Signs U.S. Licensing Deal With France's APPEASE ME RECORDS

Candlelight Records has announced its newly agreed cooperation with France's Appease Me Records. Under the agreement, Candlelight will handle the stateside release of all new recordings from the growing extreme metal label. The first planned releases include the debuts from MONOLITHE and SPEKTR.

Appease Me is owned and operated by members of the band BLUT AUS NORD. The band signed to Candlelight Records and released their first album through the label in early 2004. "The Work Which Transforms God" is for most U.S. audiences their introduction to the highly-regarded extreme metal band. Band leader/vocalist Vindsal says, "It's a great evolution for us. Candlelight's experience in all the domains — artistic development, production, distribution, promotion, etc — will be very precious for us. We want to present an ellitist vision of extreme music with Appease Me being a label of artistic explorators. All the bands signed are unique in their style and we'll always work in this way. Extreme quality not quantity."

Candlelight's Edward Christie says, "Appease Me is a unique label. Their artists, including BLUT AUS NORD, create music that is both challenging and special. Candlelight appreciates these qualities and hopes to bring their sounds to a wider audience."
