Relapse Records has announced the signing of Portland, Oregon riff worshippers LORD DYING. The band's full-length debut was recorded in September with Sanford Parker (NACHTMYSTIUM, YOB, RWAKE) and is currently being mixed and mastered for a summer release.

Formed in 2010, LORD DYING are veterans of the heavy music scene, having played in bands such as BLACK ELK, PORTALS, LE FORCE, and CREMAINS. The band has so far released a sold-out seven-inch single and a self-titled tour EP. The song "In a Frightful State Of Gnawed Dismemberment" from both releases can be heard below.

LORD DYING has built up a reputation with their ear-shattering live shows, having recently trekked across the U.S. with labelmates RED FANG and BLACK TUSK in addition to being direct support for BLACK COBRA, WITCH MOUNTAIN and GAZA. Now they will be hitting the road for a string of shows with DOWN and WARBEAST starting on January 22 in Seattle, Washington

Commented the band: "We are honored to be a part of the Relapse family. Throughout the years, Relapse has released some of the most intriguing records in the world of extreme music. While it is intimidating to join the ranks of the Relapse roster, we look forward to the future. The gloves are off."
