Candlelight Records is proud to announce the signing of thrash metal band Nuclear from Santiago, Chile.
Formed in 2003 Nuclear is one of the most dynamic South American metal bands of the new era. Nuclear’s musical career started under the name Escoria in 1995 but it wasn’t until 1997 when the first recording was released. After disbanding in 2001, Escoria’s name turned to Nuclear and the original members Puente, Haussmann and Sudy found a steady line up which is kept up to date.
Heavily influenced in ‘80s thrash and old school death metal, Nuclear has released four studio albums and toured in several countries sharing the stage with acts such as Testament, Forbidden, Voivod, Grave, Hirax, 1349, Joey Belladonna, Destruction, Brujeria, Hate Eternal, Absu, At The Gates and many others.
Nuclear’s best-selling album “Jehovirus” (2010) was mastered in the UK by metal music engineer Russ Russell (Napalm Death, Dimmu Borgir, Evile, etc.). Nuclear EP "Apatrida" was released in 2012 via Sick Bangers and distributed in Europe through Code7 / PHD.
In 2013, Nuclear released “Sick Mosh” a live DVD and “Inner Hate”, a 7” split vinyl. The band is currently working on their fifth studio record to be released in 2014.
