United Kingdom-based melodic technical metal band SUBVERSION has inked a two-album deal with Rogue Records America for publishing and distribution.
"I remember hearing SUBVERSION a while back, actually putting them on one of our compilations 'Songs In The Key Of D' and thinking how much I'd love to work with them one day," says Rogue Records America owner Dean Martinetti. "Well, that day has finally come and I am super excited. Kai and the band have something special and we are really honored that they are sharing it with us."
The band had this to say about the new relationship with Rogue: "SUBVERSION has been given an opportunity to grow in a way that we have been striving for since the band's inception. We are proud to be a part of such a passionate and caring label that shares the same vision for this band as we do. This is the start of something remarkable."
SUBVERSION has been tearing up the metal scene since 2010. Born of the mind of Kai Giritli (guitars, clean vocals) in 2008, SUBVERSION is a five-piece experimental metal band from Kent in the U.K. Featuring hard-hitting aggro vocals from Karl Harrigan, Kai's hook-filled clean vocals and guitar riffs that sway from heavy groove to epic melody, and extremely tight percussion from Ben Atkinson. Dabbling in the arts of odd time signatures combined with huge thought inducing soundscapes; this band is not afraid to push the boundaries of modern music and move away from the norm of any genre.
SUBVERSION's first full-length release, "Lest We Forget" (2010), was critically acclaimed by Metal Hammer, Kerrang!, Terrorizer and Rock Sound magazines. Singles such as "Treason", "Butchered" and "What We Are Entitled" received airtime on XFM, Total Rock and Radio 1 as well as various international stations across the world, securing SUBVERSION a slot on 2011's Euroblast festival in Germany.
