Metal Blade Records has announced the signing on Minneapolis-based symphonic metal band EPICUREAN.Formed in early 2004, EPICUREAN quickly gained the attention in the Minneapolis metal scene and developed a reputation for being a powerful and unpredictable live act. In July 2006, EPICUREAN released their debut CD, "A Consequence of Design", and in February 2007, Metal Blade Records approached EPICUREAN with an offer that they promptly accepted. EPICUREAN comments on their signing: "We are extremely excited about the signing, and what that means for the future of our band. To be a part of the Metal Blade family, along side so many bands that we have looked up to, is an honor indeed, and something we have only dreamt of until now." EPICUREAN's debut release, "A Consequence of Design", will be available exclusively on iTunes, Napster, Music Net, Sony Connect and MusicMatch in June 2007. Digital records offered via Metal Blade will also feature two exclusive bonus tracks.
