That’s right, people.
Relapse Records has announced the signing of tech-savvy grind specialists Maruta.
Founded in the swamplands of South Florida in 2005, Maruta has been blurring the lines between grindcore and technical death metal ever since.
The band has released two full-lengths through Willowtip Records, and the group’s forthcoming LP and Relapse Records debut promises to follow their upward trajectory of extreme music innovation.
Maruta will begin recording its new CD early next year with Scott Hull of Pig Destroyer producing.
The disc will be tracked at Visceral Sound Studios in Bethesda, Maryland.
“This collaboration marks the first time that Hull has agreed to record a band that is not his own, and certainly lays the groundwork for an ear-shattering Relapse debut,” says a press release.
Vocalist Mitchell Luna explains: “Relapse is a label with a very diverse roster, and one that has put out several records in the past that we consider highly influential. A partnership with them just felt like the next logical choice, and we feel like we fit right in.”
