Swiss metalcore band CATARACT have inked a deal with Metal Blade Records. The band have just completed work on their new album, "With Triumph Comes Loss", at Antfarm Studio in Aarhus, Denmark with producer Tue Madsen for a September 6 release. A vinyl version of the album will be released through Dead Serious Records.

The band, whose music is being described as "the perfect link between SLAYER and HATEBREED," commented on the signing: "YES, the rumors are true — as of this month we inked a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records! We can tell you we're so excited about it! This is more than a dream come true for all of us!

"After corporations with Ferret Music and Lifeforce Records, this will take us much further than we’ve ever expected to go as a band. It gives us an even bigger artistic platform and opens up a whole new audience to express what we are all about.

"From what they have done for us already by now, we can say that we can't wait for the future to begin… Metal Blade is home to some of our personal faves like CANNIBAL CORPSE, UNEARTH, AMON AMARTH, AS I LAY DYING, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER and has been home for SLAYER when they started off. So you can tell that we are very proud to be part of the Metal Blade family!"

With regards to the upcoming CD, the band said, "The final mix for our upcoming full length has just reached us and Tue Madsen at has done an incredible job. The first mix was already top notch (it blew away our previous recordings easily), but the new one is just killer, we hardly can believe it's us. It's gonna kill. These are by far the tightest and most in-your-face songs we have ever written. We can't wait to have everybody to listen to it. The layout will once again be done by Frans Mettes of It's gonna be dark and threatening, depressive and disturbing…"
