Italian death metallers HIDEUOS DIVINITY have inked a multi-album deal with Unique Leader Records. The band's debut album, "Obeisance Rising", will be released in June. The CD was recorded at the renowned 16th Cellar Studios by mastermind Stefano "Saul" Morabito, the man who has turned the knobs on Italy's most acclaimed extreme productions. The lyrical concept is based on John Carpenter's immortal masterstroke "They Live".
Formed in late 2006 as the project of HOUR OF PENANCE founding member Enrico Schettino, HIDEOUS DIVINITY immediately gained the attention of the extreme metal underground thanks to the 2007 "Sinful Star Necrolatry" two-track demo, an intriguing mixture of European and American metal extremities. After a long hiatus, the band finally found a stable lineup, just in time to play two festivals in Scandinavia last year alongside Sweden's INSISION.
Commented HIDEOUS DIVINITY: "Now it's official, and we can say it: we're extremely happy to be part of the world's most renowned death metal roster. Being chosen by Unique Leader after only two short promos is also a huge reason for pride. We are working very hard to bring you the most crushing and epic death metal assault human ears can experience. Fans of NILE, IMMOLATION and relentless death metal worldwide, HIDEOUS DIVINITY is on its way!"
