Metal Blade Records has announce the signing of Chillicothe, Ohio's WOE OF TYRANTS.

According to a press release, WOE OF TYRANTS is "comprised of five guys dead-set on playing metal the way they want to, never listening or caring what scene they belong to or what sells the most records; who mix the best of death, thrash, and power metal in a concoction that defies pigeon-holing. Mix the vintage sounds of TESTAMENT and METALLICA, brutal death metal, epic power metal, and even some southern fried flair thrown on top, and you have what has become known as WOE OF TYRANTS."

Commented the band: "We are extremely excited about working with Metal Blade and feel that we have a lot to offer the label and more importantly the heavy metal community all together. We feel Metal Blade has our best interests at heart as they've shown their dedication to their artists and fans by releasing some of the best metal in the world for decades. We have always stuck with our guns when writing and performing our music, refusing to give into any of the trends or clichés that pop-up in the heavy music genre and are very thankful that Metal Blade has not let this go unnoticed. We are prepared to unleash the best and most crushing material we've written thus far and hope to reach as many people possible with our music. We are blessed to have such an opportunity. Keep a lookout for our debut, and lots of touring, this is only the beginning!"

Added Metal Blade Records' Jen Graham: "WOE OF TYRANTS plays a unique blend of death, thrash, melody, exceptional guitar riffs and even a little bit of Southern rock. They have a great work ethic and we can't wait to work along side them to take them to the next level. W.O.T. will definitely be a band to keep all eyes and ears on. Welcome to the Metal Blade family, guys!"

WOE OF TYRANTS will be touring through the winter and will be finishing up the writing of their Metal Blade debut in the spring with plans to enter the studio in early summer 2008. More details on tour dates and the album will be made over the coming weeks and months.
