It’s true, folks.
Back from the dead, Massacre have now inked a sweet new deal with Century Media. The 1990s Floridian death metal outfit have been working on a new album since mid-February at CGM Studios in Altamonte Springs, Florida.
Producer Tim Vazquez is working with the band on two new songs — “Succumb To Rapture” and “Back From Beyond” — to be released as a seven-inch single in August, in time for the group’s appearance at the Wacken Open Air festival in Germany.
“I am overwhelmed, and overly flattered, for this great honor in this day and age of being part of the Century Media family,” says guitarist Frederick “Rick Rozz” DeLillo.
“I remember touring with [Century Media CEO] Robert Kampf and his band Despair back in the late 1980s, on tour with Death, when he was first starting Century Media… and now we are on the same team 25 years later.
“After so many years gone by, it is great to be working with Terry again and our former Death manager Eric Greif, as well as getting to write and record with Ed Webb and Mike Mazzonetto.
“This whole thing came together on the fly, after 17 years in the waiting. Way cool… if you ask me. Nothing but respect!”
