Century Media Announces Worldwide Partnership with Roadrunner Records to Release New DAATH Album
Century Media Records is proud to announce a worldwide partnership with Roadrunner Records to release D電TH's new opus, "The Concealers", on April 20th (Europe) / April 21st (US), promising a straight shot of pure, unfiltered extreme metal at its very best!
The Atlanta based quintet certainly set out with a mission to truly separate themselves from the rest when recording their much anticipated new album. The dueling guitar virtuosity of Emil Werstler and Eyal Levi harkens many comparisons to Mustaine and Friedman, all the while the acclaimed Kevin Talley (ex-Chimaira, ex-Dying Fetus, ex Misery Index) pounds away with fury and precision and bassist Jeremy Creamer provides a powerful groove. The band's current line-up is completed by new singer Sean Z who performs an extraordinary job on "The Concealers".
The album was produced and mixed by Jason Suecof and Mark Lewis (Trivium, All That Remains, Devildriver) and to allow you a glimpse at D電TH's unparalleled musicianship and vicious impact the brand-new track "Sharpen the Blades" can now be heard at http://www.myspace.com/daath!
Werstler comments: "We mutually agreed that CM would be much more appropriate for the band at this stage, but that nobody felt like it was time to end the relationship with Roadrunner, so we worked out a deal where Roadrunner still makes our records, but CM works them."
D電TH shot to the forefront of the metal world with the 2007 release of "The Hinderers". The band built a worldwide following by touring with the likes of Job For A Cowboy, Devildriver, Unearth, Despised Icon and others while also taking part in the 2007 edition of Ozzfest. After this wrapped and the band underwent some healthy lineup changes, D電TH entered the studio more focused than ever before to begin work on their sophomore album.
D電TH is the brain child of Levi and features amongst its ranks some of the best all around musicians in today's heavy music scene. Werstler is one of the most heralded up-and-coming guitarists today, see him shred: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fXfO6Ob8Vv0. The band also enlisted the full-time duties of drummer Kevin Talley (ex- Chimaira, Dying Fetus, Misery Index,), who is renowned for his technical proficiency, speed and strong attack.
Talley comments: "It's amazing that Roadrunner and Century Media are collaborating for the release of our upcoming album because I have been friends with both labels for so many years. My experience with Century Media dates back to my DYING FETUS and MISERY INDEX days when I would stop by their office and raid the CD warehouse for killer music. I was even wearing a Century Media shirt during my SLAYER audition. Overall, I am stoked because these labels are not only my friends, but they are great labels and I am honored to have their names on the upcoming release."
Levi further states: "I'm not going to waste your time or insult your intelligence with a plethora of metal words and brutal adjectives about our new album. I'll just say this: In my opinion this is the first true D電TH record. I think it's amazing. Any preconceived notions you may have about our band will be destroyed. We came together on this like one five headed, pissed off beast that's out for blood. Everyone's strengths shine like never before. It's the best I've ever written and played and it's the best I've ever heard my band mates write and play. Call me cocky if you will, but check out the record and if you disagree feel free to write me on our MySpace and call me a prick. Otherwise I hope you enjoy the hell out of it and look forward to seeing you on the road!"
