Saskatoon, Saskatchewan-based thrash/death metal trio UNTIMELY DEMISE has signed a worldwide multi-album deal with Sonic Unyon Metal!
The group’s self-released debut full-length album, City Of Steel, has already brought UNTIMELY DEMISE incredible praise from international magazines and media outlets, as well as from countless notable and influential metal artists who have heard the album or shared the stage with the band. The blazing seven-track release was produced by ex-Megadeth/King Diamond guitarist Glen Drover, and showcases over 32 minutes of professionally-executed metal supremacy.
The band commented on their recent recording agreement with Sonic Unyon: “We are extremely excited and honored to be on the Sonic Unyon Metal roster! Joining the likes of legendary Canadian thrash originators such as Sacrifice and Voivod, as well as modern rising talents Augury and Suicidal Angels, we realize that we have found a perfect fit for our sophisticated thrash/death metal sound! We had been in talks with about half a dozen labels that had expressed interest in our band, but none of them hit the nail on the head like the one we signed with. Furthermore, this label has been receptive to our music since we first made contact with them in early 2009, so this isn’t just some spur of the moment decision. Working with their talented and passionate team of music fanatics assures that our music will reach the right audience, and ultimately the interests of the art will take precedence over everything else. Totally stoked to see where we can take this thing!”
“We are very excited to be working with UNTIMELY DEMISE, as we feel they are one of the best new metal bands in Canada,” says Sonic Unyon owner Tim Potocic. “The band is dedicated and diligent towards their craft, they have a work ethic not seen in most bands and is a great fit on our roster next to Voivod and Sacrifice.”
Sonic Unyon Metal will re-release City Of Steel in North America on September 13th, with European release dates to be announced shortly. Check out the album artwork and more at this location.
