CODE OF SILENCE Signs With MAUSOLEUM RECORDS

British melodic metallers CODE OF SILENCE, who are fronted by Brazilian vocalist Gus Monsanto (REVOLUTION RENAISSANCE, ADAGIO, SYMBOLICA, LORD OF MUSHROOMS), have signed with Mausoleum Records and Rubicon Music.

Produced by Paul Logue (EDEN'S CURSE) and mixed and mastered by Italian producer Alessandro Del Vecchio (EDEN'S CURSE, HARDLINE, LIONVILLE) CODE OF SILENCE's full-length debut, "Dark Skies Over Babylon", is described in a press release as "a grandiose thematic album based upon the tales of the legendary Knights Templar during the period of the Crusades." The CD is scheduled for release on January 23 in Japan, February 25 in Europe and April 9 in North America.

CODE OF SILENCE filmed a promotional video for their first single, "Sky Is Falling Down", in early December in Glasgow with Mycho Films. The clip will make its online debut in the spring.

A two-minute audio sample of "Sky Is Falling Down" can be streamed using the SoundCloud player below.

Alongside the experienced Monsanto, CODE OF SILENCE features young virtuoso guitarist Ben Randall (POWER QUEST) who turned heads when he won "The Most Promising Young Guitarist" award at the 2008 inaugural Guitar Idol competition in London at just 17 years old. With a field of over 750 international entrants, Randall wowed judges who praised "his level of technical virtuosity at such a young age, coupled with a level of phrasing beyond his years," a hallmark of his playing throughout the CODE OF SILENCE debut. The rest of CODE OF SILENCE consists of keyboardist Scott McLean (FALLOCH, CONCEPT OF TIME), drummer John Clelland (THE CROWS, THE JACK, KARMA, THE TROUBLESHOOTERS), and bassist and band leader James Murray.
