Holocausto Canibal has inked a worldwide record deal with Xtreem Music
National release will be handled by Raising Legends and Raging Planet Records.
The band’s fourth full-length album, “Gorefilia”, will be released during April 2012. The album was recorded at 213 Studio [Heavenwood, Grunt] and mastered / mixed at Hertz Studios [Behemoth, Decapitated, Vader]. Some changes can be expected regarding the sound and lyrical content, but keeping intact the musical filthiness supported by the repulsive imagery which always made us (in)famous through our 15 years of existence.
Commenting, bassist Z. Pedro said: “Back in 1997 when Holocausto Canibal was born, bands such as Incantation, Vader, Deranged, Immolation, Deeds Of Flesh… were not only an influence to the sound which we were creating, they also had released material though the legendary death metal label Repulse Records. This label became Xtreem Music a few years ago and is still releasing brutal music, gathering over 100 releases so far, being “Gorefilia” their 108th release.”
Eduardo F. states: “We’ve known Dave Rotten [Xtreem Music A&R] for over a decade, having in on stage in some gigs as special guest and we also shared stage with Avulsed in several European festivals. Adding to this, a release history of more than 100 titles, make us strongly believe that Xtreem Music is the reliable and hardworking label that we were looking for.”
Regarding the national release, it will be handled by Raging Planet Records along with Raising Legends Productions.
Diogo P. says: “After some search and several proposals, we chose these guys since they show some serious commitment with their artists and all the other things related to a band’s work and progress. It’s a team of experienced and reliable people and with proofs given in the scene, we couldn’t expect more for the Portuguese release.”
The national version of “Gorefilia” will have some minor changes compared to the worldwide release so stay tunned and get ready to acquire both versions!
