Dutch metallers MAGNACULT have inked a deal with Rusty Cage Records. The group's debut album, "Synoré", was produced by the band themselves along with Jochem Jacobs (TEXTURES) and Bouke Visser and was mixed and mastered at the Split Second Sound Studio. A May release is expected.Commented guitarist D.: "When we were thinking of a producer, Jochem was the first person that came in our minds. We all like the sound he made for TEXTURES and the other stuff he did." Added guitarist Tom: "We knew he would be the one that could give us the sound that we were looking for." Musically the MAGNACULT members are influenced by many different bands, ranging from modern metal to death metal and beyond. "We always like to challenge ourselves with what we do," said D. "Putting the ladder a step higher every time and pushing you to the limits every day again. Come up with weird counts but not to confusing and most important still keeping the groove in the songs. That was where we were aiming for while writing the material." For more information, visit www.myspace.com/magnacult.
