Metal Blade Records signs Miami, FL's Abiotic; tour with Enfold Darkness announced
Video for "Vermosapien" available on Metal Blade TV
Agoura Hills, CA - April 2nd, 2012 - Miami, FL newcomers, Abiotic, have become the newest addition to Metal Blade's roster with a newly signed, worldwide, multi-album deal. Abiotic stormed onto the underground metal scene with the release of their A Universal Plague EP in September of 2011. Since then, through word-of-mouth on-line and steady gigging in the South East, Abiotic has become one of the top bands to watch. Their music video for Vermosapien was released in January of 2012 and was viewed over 40,000 times within the first month of its release. The band has proven that they have the wherewithal to stand alongside the best and brightest in the technical death metal genre worldwide. Fans of Obscura, Veil of Maya, and Cannibal Corpse will immediately identify with their finely-honed technical attack.
Abiotic comments on the signing; "We can't express how amazing it is to be on the same label as some of our favorite bands and how great it feels to be working with one of the biggest labels in metal!"
Metal Blade comments on the signing; "It's rare to come across a band as well put together as Abiotic. The video for Vermosapien makes it immediately evident that this band has the chops, songs, work ethic, and live show to perform alongside any contemporary death metal act. We very much look forward to releasing this band's music to a worldwide audience later this year!"
Hometown and Florida-area fans will be able to see Abiotic's prowess live and in-person on the Shredded To Pieces Tour with King Conquer, Forty Winters, and In Reference To A Sinking Ship throughout April. Following those dates, Abiotic will tour the Midwest/southeast on the Shred Till You're Dead Tour with Sumerian Records artist's Enfold Darkness and Vale Of Pnath, who recently signed a deal with Willowtip Records. Also in tow will be After the Spire. These tours feature some of the best up-and-coming talent in extreme metal and should not be missed! The full listing of confirmed dates can be seen below.
