Sign To Century Media. Wednesday 19th June 2013
Century Media Records is thrilled to welcome metal
veterans UNEARTH to their roster in Europe.
UNEARTH have recently started working on their
sixth album with renown producer Mark Lewis (Trivium,
DevilDriver, The Black Dahlia Murder, Deicide
and many more) which is roughly scheduled for
a late 2013 release. It is their sixth album since
their inception in 1998. Vocalist Trevor Phipps
offers the state of the band and their intentions
for this new release in his comments below:
"A new chapter has begun for UNEARTH as we
have found a few new places to call home. By joining
forces with Century Media (Europe), E1 (North
America), Howling Bull (Japan) and 3Wise (Australia)
we will have a more focused attack from some of
the most well known and respected labels in the
world. We know this new beginning of sorts will
bring bigger and better things for UNEARTH and
our fans and we couldn't be more excited for the
future of all things UNEARTH. We are currently
in the studio recording some of the most aggressive,
anthemic and energized metal we have ever written
and we look forward to unleashing it to you all
when it is finished. Expect to hear more about
our new album, release dates and future world
wide touring plans later this summer. - We also
want to take this opportunity to thank Metal Blade
Records for being our label home for almost a
decade. In that time we released four LP's and
a double DVD, circled the Globe playing Heavy
Metal dozens of times and experienced some of
the greatest moments of our collective lives.
Metal Blade helped us along the path of our dream
and we are eternally grateful. We start new label
relationships today, but we will always consider
ourselves part of the Metal Blade Records family."
After an awe-inspiring 15 years of blazing trails
and dominating stages, UNEARTH is now institutionalized
as a relentless force in heavy metal, standing
the test of time with consistently triumphant
creative output, tireless road warrior resilience,
Blue Collar style workmanship and a resolute determination
to deliver the goods.
With over 500,000 in worldwide sales, UNEARTH’s
continued staying power has also hinged on their
highly interactive and toweringly heavy live performances.
Over the course of their impressive 15 years career,
UNEARTH have played amphitheaters, sheds, theaters,
halls and clubs with a diverse group of bands
that includes Slipknot, Slayer, Killswitch Engage,
Lamb Of God, All That Remains, DevilDriver, Dimmu
Borgir, Gwar and Whitechapel. They’ve appeared
at prestigious festivals like Download in the
UK, Germany’s With Full Force and Wacken,
Belgium’s Graspop, Hellfest in France and
Japan’s Loud Park.
With an average age still well behind the genre-forefathers
and legends ahead of them, Unearth are committed
to collaborating on uncharted new heights within
their music. No sellout, no experimental adventurousness
and no letdown for their extremely dedicated fans
on the horizon. With a blank slate in front of
them, UNEARTH will always steadily maintain and
powerfully proclaim their allegiance to the lifestyle,
the ethos and the community of heavy metal, both
now and forever.

Of The Month - April/May 2013 - Slagerij
a 3 piece ska-punk band from Swindon they formed
back in late 2007 and since then have had an exciting
journey releasing various different EP’s
as well as two self-recorded and self-produced
albums, the band have toured across the UK many
times over and have also visited America for a
Recently Slagerij have been
on the road supporting 4FT Fingers who were back
on the scene for a handful of shows back in March
and this was where we first saw Slagerij on the
live circuit and were totally blown away with
their energetic shows in both Bristol and Swindon
where the crowd fully got into it and opened up
mosh pits at nearly every opportunity whilst a
few people chose to take things further with a
bit of crowd surfing as Slagerij unleashed their
The likes of ‘Set It
Off’, ‘Girls Got Rhythm’, ‘...
Now For The Weather’ and ‘Can’t
Stop A Nation’ have been fan favourites
for years and it is so easy to see why as no two
Slagerij songs are the same as one minute they
go down the ska route sounding like the bastard
love childs of Whitmore meets Less Than Jake and
then the next they go down the more in your face
punk rock route sounding like 4Ft Fingers mixed
with a legion of Oi punk bands.
Slagerij have just released
their new single ‘Non Stop Party Machine’
which shows that after not releasing any new material
for a couple of years they still have the knack
at writing big in your face catchy songs that
are going to get you dancing in your bedroom and
causing carnage in your local venue when Slagerji
next come to town.
Over the next couple of months
Slagerij have a hectic touring schedule as they
tour the likes of Bath, Swindon, Birmingham, Torquay,
Cheltenham, Cardiff, Keynsham and also head to
Scotland to play at the long running Wickerman
Festival, and if that was not enough they have
also announced a New Years Eve show where they
will be seeing the New year in supporting Whitmore
who are reforming for the one off special show.

sure everyone else has a goodtime in the process.
