Metal Blade Records has announced the signing of New Haven, Connecticut black metallers IPSISSIMUS to a worldwide deal. The band will enter Sonic Environments studio in Bloomfield, Connecticut to record its full-length debut for an early 2011 release. A longtime friend of IPSISSIMUS guitarist His Emissary, Jeff Weed is not only the owner of Sonic Environments studio but has also stepped in as the band's "sonic alchemist" (a.k.a. engineer/producer).

IPSISSIMUS began recording in June 2010 and is taking a short break before returning to Sonic Environments in early September to finish the record.

The CD will include the band's "Three Secrets of Fatima" EP along with three new songs.

IPSISSIMUS drummer Haimatokharmes comments: "Metal Blade is a label that has been home to artists brutal, technical, filthy, blasting, wildly successful, and, most importantly, unique. Ipsissimus is very proud to join this family, and looks forward to adoring the Goat with them by producing ritual black metal that is truly ipsissima!"

"A three-piece black metal symphony that is at the forefront of the American black metal movement… IPSISSIMUS is technical yet punishing, perfect for Metal Blade Records and fans of our brand of metal," adds Michael Faley, President of Metal Blade Records.

IPSISSIMUS has a handful of upcoming one-off shows that will see the band sharing the stage with the likes of THE ABSENCE, SKELETONWITCH, WITHERED, LANDMINE MARATHON, UNEARTHLY TRANCE, BLACK PYRAMID, SUMA, and more.
