Nuclear Blast Records has announced the signing of technical brutal death metallers DECREPIT BIRTH from Santa Cruz, California. The band, founded in 2001, has so far released two highly acclaimed albums, "And Time Begins" (2003) and "Diminishing Between Worlds" (2008).
Commented the band: "Nuclear Blast Records has a special tradition for signing some of the best metal acts of all time, including DEATH, DIMMU BORGIR, TESTAMENT and EXODUS, just to name a few. We feel very lucky and honored to be a part of the family! Our intention is to take the music to the next level and continue to release quality progressive death metal. We are confident to have Nuclear Blast Records in our corner! We also want to thank Unique Leader Records very much for the years of dedication to DECREPIT BIRTH. After we complete more touring in support of the current release, we will begin pre-production for the next album."
"Diminishing Between Worlds" was released on January 28 via Unique Leader Records. The CD was recorded at Castle Ultimate studios with engineer/producer Zack Ohren.
Guitarist/vocalist Matt Sotelo previously said about the CD, "This album will be a step in more of a melodic and progressive direction yet still have a heavy dose of technical brutality. Very reminiscent of bands such as later DEATH, CYNIC and QUO VADIS mixed with the brutality that DECREPIT BIRTH is known for. We are really trying to do something new with album, and we feel that we have grown as musicians and that 'Diminishing between Worlds' will be a reflection of that."
