Xtreem Music has announced the signing of San Diego's old-school death-mongers DEATHEVOKATION. With only one demo out, simply titled "Blood" and recorded during the first months of 2005, this band — led by a native of Germany, Götz Vogelsang — has already had an impact on the extreme-metal underground. The demo, which features three songs in the vein of UNLEASHED, BOLT THROWER, ASPHYX and AUTOPSY, was rated 10/10 in Germany's biggest extreme metal magazine Legacy and is going to be featured in an upcoming issue of Metal Maniacs. The demo was released the old way — on a pro-done cassette accompanied by a three-inch mini-CD with the same songs in MP3 format; it has since been released on a CD-R for the "less old-school-minded" fans who prefer the digital facilities.

DEATHEVOKATION are currently jamming with their new drummer and revamping the demo songs as well as writing new songs with titles like "Infinity Blights the Flesh", "Day of Shadows" and "The Chalice of Ages". A full-length album, also titled "The Chalice of Ages", is expected to arrive before the end of the year.
