3 INCHES OF BLOOD sign worldwide deal with Century Media Records
One of the biggest defenders of traditional heavy metal, Canada's 3 INCHES OF BLOOD, has crafted a new dynamic, epic opus of grandeur that is soon to be hailed as the gospel of all things heavy. Century Media Records is proud to welcome these metal warriors to its worldwide family roster and fans can expect their massively anticipated new full-length release this fall.
Cam Pipes (vocals) further comment:
"Ever since our departure from our previous label, Century Media has been in the forefront trying to get us to sign with them. No other label showed as much enthusiasm and belief in our band as they did. Right from the start we all got a great feeling from the whole Century Media team. We feel comfortable with the vision they have for us and are confident they have the necessary tools and motivation to help us in the ways our previous label didn't. We can't wait to unleash this new material upon the masses."
3 INCHES OF BLOOD entered Seattle's London Bridge Studios to commence the recording process in mid April with renowned producer Jack Endino (High On Fire). The group took a break from the studio for a slew of high profile US shows with genre leaders Slipknot, Pipes further states:
"The shows with Slipknot were absolutely amazing. Any band would be fortunate to get to play in front of their crowd and because we are such a different band than Slipknot. This was an excellent opportunity for us to put ourselves in front of people who have never heard us before and make some new fans. Obviously, Joey Jordison (Slipknot drummer), our friend and past producer, had a part in getting us on these shows and we are massively grateful to him and everyone else that made it happen."
Born out of a love for pure metal, weaned on a diet of fantasy and mythology, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD have been slaying the infidel for nearly a decade. In that time, they've released three albums and splattered the ground with crimson streaks while on tour with such acclaimed acts as Satyricon, Black Dahlia Murder, Motorhead and Cradle of Filth, just to name a few.
In 2009, 3 INCHES OF BLOOD raises the chalice another notch leaving their definitive mark on the metal genre. Stay tuned to www.myspace.com/3iob for video updates, studio reports and more!
