German metallers DEADLOCK have inked a deal with Napalm Records. The band is currently recording the follow-up to 2011’s “Bizarro World” for a late 2013 release.

Commented DEADLOCK: “We are thrilled to announce that we’ve got signed by the mighty metal powerhouse Napalm Records to release our new album. Since Napalm started in 1992 they have proven to be a high-demanded record label and it’s an honor for us to be on a roster amongst many other great bands. We couldn’t be more excited to start working with the guys and unleash the best and most intense record DEADLOCK did so far.”

“Bizarro World” was released in February 2011 in Europe and March 2011 in the U.S. via Lifeforce Records. The CD was recorded at Slaughter’s Palace studio and was once again produced and engineered by the band’s musical mastermind and guitar/sound wizard Sebastian Reichl.
