Pulverised Records has announced the signing of Swedish grind guerrillas EXHALE.
Formed in 2004, EXHALE has proven to be a devastating force, bombarding the grindcore community with two full-length albums, "Prototype" in 2006 and "Blind" in 2010.
Due in early 2013, EXHALE's new CD, "When Worlds Collide", sees the band taking on a much more dynamic approach while still maintaining an extremely strict diet of sick and demented modern grind-sanity.
Commented the band: "We're really proud to announce that we have inked a deal with Pulverised Records. The label has released some really good albums during the years (BOMBS OF HADES, DESULTORY, MORBUS CHRON, just to name a few), so it feels great to be among them.
"'When Worlds Collide' contains 14 tracks of grinding death metal. You will recognize the sound of EXHALE but there are also a few surprises for you!
"Can't wait to release this monster! See you on the road in 2013!"
Added Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin: "Throughout the years of our search for the signing the 'right' bands, there were, of course, many bands that we felt were a great addition to our roster. Then came along EXHALE's four-song promo by way of email one day, and those four tracks became an instant hit with us! There are some real serious chops and unbelievably stalwart songwriting amongst all that chaos; it is almost unreal.
"We are extremely proud to have EXHALE join the Pulverised family, and we cannot wait to present 'When Worlds Collide' on a worldwide domination crusade. Onward to grind-gotha we shall!"
EXHALE recently filmed a video for the song "Wrath Unleashed," the opening track from "When Worlds Collide". The clip, which can be seen below, was shot and directed by acclaimed Swedish videographer Daniel Falk from FramedNoise.com.
