Century Media Records has announced the signing of California's death metal act SKELETAL REMAINS. The band's third studio album will be released in the spring. The disc is being tracked at Trench Studios (ABYSMAL DAWN, EXHUMED, HIRAX) in California and will be mixed by Dan Swanö at Unisound Studio (ASPHYX, DISSECTION, BLOODBATH).The as-yet-untitled effort will be made available via Dark Descent Records in North America and Century Media Records in the rest of the world.
"We're extremely excited and honored to announce our signing with Century Media Records and Dark Descent Records," said SKELETAL REMAINS. "We'd like to thank Rico and the FDA family for everything they have done for us and helped us with in the past few years! "We will be going into the studio record our next album in late October, so expect a release around spring next year. "Thank you all for the support and we'll be seeing you out on the road real soon!"
"Death metal is an integral part of Century Media's DNA since day one," said Stefan Franke of Century Media Records in Europe. "The label owes its early '90s success to acts like ASPHYX, GRAVE, UNLEASHED, MORGOTH and TIAMAT, and today holds one of the most impressive rosters within the genre including bands like AT THE GATES, ABORTED, DEICIDE, NECROPHOBIC, VAMPIRE, TRIBULATION, ENTOMBED A.D., DESERTED FEAR, IMPLORE, VALLENFYRE, BROKEN HOPE and many more. "SKELETAL REMAINS have proven themselves live and on their excellent first two records turning influences from PESTILENCE, DEMOLITION HAMMER, DEATH, OBITUARY and early GORGUTS into one hell of a lethal combination. "After hearing some pre-production demos, you can rest assured: the deadliest is yet to come! Welcome to the family!"
SKELETAL REMAINS formed as ANTHROPOPHAGY back in 2011 and released the two much-lauded studio albums — "Beyond The Flesh" (2012) and "Condemned To Misery" (2015) — via German label FDA Rekotz. They constantly toured Europe, the U.S. and Japan, and performed at renowned festivals as Maryland Deathfest, Party.San, Brutal Assault, Obscene Extreme and Hellfest.
