Century Media Records has announced the signing of Sweden's MIASMAL. The Gothenburg-based band caught the label's attention with its uncompromising way of playing real, straightforward, stripped-to-the-core and no-bullshit death metal. Their DIY attitude and previous releases (a demo, a seven-inch EP and one studio album) have gained them a constantly growing fan base.
Commented Philipp Schulte, A&R representative at Century Media Records: "We are very happy about the signing of MIASMAL. The current death metal underground scene is offering many excellent new and promising bands, but only a few have that certain edge that makes you feel there is much more to come. It's the combination of their music, style and attitude that makes MIASMAL simply outstanding. When I listened to tracks like 'Kallocain', 'Toxic Breed' or the epic 'Chronicles' for the first time I felt this band has a spirit most other bands are lacking."
Added Pontus Redig, guitarist and vocalist in MIASMAL: "We are happy to announce that we just signed a deal with Century Media! As fans of many of the label's releases and bands, we feel that we are in good company. The new cooperation offers lots of opportunities for the making of our next record which is something we are very excited about. We've just begun the writing process and plan to head to the studio during the winter to immortalize our second album and Century Media debut."
MIASMAL's self-titled full-length debut was released last year on CD by Dark Descent Records and given the vinyl treatment through Detest Records and Me Saco Un Ojo.
