Admittedly, I had never heard of Sweden’s Morbus Chron before they signed this week with Century Media Records. Perhaps that’s why I am not an A&R dude.
But I have to say — if this press release I received is actually not bullshit, they may be my new favorite band.
“Often described as a perfect mix between Autopsy and Carnage…” Stop. That’s the sentence the press release starts with. Fucking hell. If that’s even slightly true, I’m fucking down.
“Morbus Chron clearly stands out as one of the most talented and promising bands among all of the new traditional death metal acts that have been popping-up in the scene for over three years now,” the press release says.
Yuh. I think I may be down.
Commented the band: “Always expect the unexpected. Morbus Chron are thrilled to join the ranks of Century Media Records. We know that with greater assistance and sturdier tools, the more clearly we can focus our attention solely on the music. So it is with big smiles that we ink this deal tonight. To keep the momentum going, we’re entering Gutterview Studios in March/April to record our first 10-inch EP. Expect to have us around for a while.”
