Obliteration: Signs to Relapse Records in North America

Norway Death Metal band Obliteration have just signed to Relapse Records and plan on releasing their new album next year.  The band is from the same hometown as legendary Black Metal band Darkthrone and the two guitarists are also in the excellent thrash band Nekromantheon.  Obliteration is a killer fucking band and this signing is long overdue, check out the press release from Relapse:

"Relapse Records is extremely proud to announce the North American signing of Oslo, Norway's death metal warriors Obliteration! Formed in 2001, Obliteration (Sindre Solem - guitar / vocals, Arlid Myren Torp - guitar, Didrik Telle- bass, Kristian Valbo - drums) have released one EP (Total Fucking Obliteration - 2005) and two full-lengths (Perpetual Decay - 2007, Nekropsalms - 2009) to much critical acclaim in the metal underground. Combining a cosmic blend of old school death metal mixed with the best elements of doom, punk, thrash and primitive black metal, the band has quickly built a name for themselves with their unique, repulsive style.

Obliteration recently finished recording their highly anticipated new album at their home studio in Kolbotn, Norway which will be released later this year by Relapse in North America and Indie Recordings in the rest of the world. Vocalist / guitarist Sindre Solem commented on their upcoming partnership with Relapse:

"We in Obliteration are extremly psyched that Relapse Records are going to handle the American release of our upcoming LP. Relapse have a long stream of quality metal releases, and their reach is vast, so we are honored, and confident that Relapse Records will do a stellar job in spreading the word of Obliteration. Onward hail!"

Obliteration plans to return to North America in early 2014 in support of their new record. You can stream two tracks from the band's most recent album Nekropsalms via their Bandcamp.
