Earache Records has announced the signing of Brooklyn’s heavy metal warriors NATURto a worldwide recording deal.

Formed in 2008, NATUR channels the old-school, high-energy sound reminiscent of legendary artists JUDAS PRIEST, MERCYFUL FATE, and MOTÖRHEAD with New York intensity. The band has already achieved cult status among Brooklyn’s developing metal scene, joining prominent acts like TOMBS, KRALLICE, and BLACK ANVIL and catching the eye of popular publications Revolver magazine and Vice.

Steadily gigging locally and abroad, NATUR has earned a reputation for putting on an explosive live show. Appearances at Maryland Deathfest IX and the Live Evil festivals have established them as a force to be reckoned with. The band has shared the stage with GHOST, MARDUK, and AURA NOIR, as well as Earache‘s own CAULDRON and HOUR OF 13. NATUR also hosts New York City’s East Village Radio‘s “Metal Inquisition” show.

Commented the band: “So here we are, on bellies full of free Thai food and drink, somewhere in Long Island City. We’ve just signed our souls over to legendary metal maniac label Earache. We are very excited to take our old metal to a new level and look forward to working with these guys.”
