Swedish abjection horde MAJALIS has inked a deal with Pulverised Records. The band's debut EP will be released later in the year.

With this project, group suspended for several years and ultimately resurrected by the group's pivotal figures Tobias Netzell and Björn Pettersson, also of IN MOURNING fame; MAJALIS is now ready to take the first leap forward and introduce the band's EP to the unsuspecting world of mournful harmonious scorn.

Much of the material for MAJALIS' first EP was written by Tobias and Björn several years ago. All four members are active musicians in other bands and are no strangers to playing live or writing music.

Comments MAJALIS six-stringer Björn Pettersson: "We are happy and proud to be able to work with Pulverised for our debut EP. Some of us have been working together before and it feels like both us and the Pulverised guys are pretty stoked about this project, so we have no doubts that this will be a good collaboration."

Adds Pulverised label manager Roy Yeo: "Having worked with IN MOURNING previously, we knew very clearly what Tobias, Björn and Co. were capable of for sure. MAJALIS, although are amongst the same musical territory with the likes of IN MOURNING, KATATONIA, etc. and its predecessors, they sound nothing like the aforementioned bands. There is really no better way to describe MAJALIS than somewhat sounding dangerously close to a funeral-like post rock band with unyielding depressive underlings."
