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, 2008’s “In Narcosis” and 2011’s “Forward Into Regression”, to very positive reviews. Their forthcoming full-length 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 and AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED 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.
Vocalist Mitchell Luna commented on the signing: “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.”
MARUTA‘s previous two albums plus songs from Relapse‘s “This Comp Kills Fascists” collection are available for streaming via their official Bandcamp page. They have toured the U.S. and Europe multiple times.
