THULCANDRA — the reactivated German black/death metal band featuring members of OBSCURA, DARK FORTRESS and HELFAHRT — has inked a deal with Napalm Records. The group's new album will be released in 2010.

The band, whose sound is described as "a blackened abyss filled with furious riffs, devastating blast beats and pitch-black vocals," says in a statement, "We are very proud to announce our signing to the Austrian label Napalm Records, which have released timeless classics, including ABIGOR, FALKENBACH and VINTERSORG. With THULCANDRA, we will set our mark within the Napalm family by releasing our upcoming albums of furious classic black and death metal of the early nineties worldwide. If you are into DISSECTION, EUCHARIST or UNANIMATED, feel free to lend your ears to three pre-produced tunes off the upcoming debut album [at this location]."


Steffen Kummerer - Vocals, Guitar
Sebastian Ludwig - Guitar
Tobias Ludwig - Bass
Seraph - Session Drums

THULCANDRA was founded back in 2003 by Steffen Kummerer (OBSCURA) and Jürgen Zintz with the intention of writing music in the vein of DISSECTION and UNANIMATED, the "old way of Swedish blackened death metal." When Jürgen committed suicide at the end of 2005, the band went on a hiatus. THULCANDRA was revived when the evil twins Tobias and Sebastian Ludwig, both known for their guitar and bass duties in the German pagan/black metal band HELFAHRT, joined the fold and Seraph of the mighty DARK FORTRESS stepped in as a session drummer.
