Theories signs with Metal Blade Records

- July 31st, 2014 –

Seattle, WA based death/grind newcomers, Theories, has signed with Metal Blade Records! The band, which features former members of Book of Black Earth, Skarp, and Samothrace, has been performing across the US since their inception in late 2010. They’ve earned slots on tours with Goatwhore, Fallujah, Toxic Holocaust, King Parrot, and more. Now in 2014, Theories, are preparing to release their debut full length album. The lineup of vocalist Rick Powell, guitarist Lee McGlothlen, bassist Kusha Karimi, and drummer Joe Axler have joined forces for one purpose: to write vicious grindcore/death metal, and to tour extensively.

Drummer Joe Axler comments: “After grinding hard for almost 4 years we had finally taken a (short) break from touring to record our first full length record engineered by Derek Moree at Red Room Studios and mastered by Scott Hull at Visceral Sound and are extremely excited with the results. During a tour around the states to Marlyand Death Fest, just after recording, we fell upon the ears of the label we will be releasing with, Metal Blade, we couldn’t be happier with this new relationship and plan on continuing to go hard and bust as many fucking ear drums as possible. Grind hard or stay fucking home!
