Metal Blade Records has officially inked a worldwide deal with the upstate New York metal band THE RED DEATH. Having previously released a six-song EP with Crooked Halo Records, band's first full-length album is scheduled to hit stores in the spring/summer of 2005. THE RED DEATH just finished up recording at Indie Audio in Syracuse, NY with producer Jason "Jocko" Randall (ED GEIN).The band had the following to say regarding their deal with Metal Blade Records: "We at THE RED DEATH camp are proud to announce our signing with the almighty Metal Blade Records. This is exactly the label we wanted to work with, and it's an honor to be given this opportunity. It's still unreal that a band from Western New York has been given the chance to work with a label that bands such as THE RED CHORD, AMON AMARTH, UNEARTH, AS I LAY DYING, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, CATTLE DECAPITATION, THE CROWN, VEHEMENCE, and many others call home. Look for us on the road starting in February." Added Metal Blade Records President Michael Faley: "We are extremely excited to be involved with the new core of metal bands that are cropping up across America and Europe. To that end we are proud to welcome THE RED DEATH to the Metal Blade family. They are a young, exciting metalcore band who are extremely talented and destined for a bright future."
