Metal Blade inks deal with Poison Tongue Records

Official press release: Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce it has inked an imprint deal with Alan Averill "Nemtheanga" of Primordial to handle distribution of his label Poison Tongue Records. Alan's Poison Tongue Records has already begun to gain notice as a promising label in the underground scene in Europe and now with distribution being handled by Metal Blade Records in North America, the label will be able to further expand its reach into States. Alan Averill 'Nemtheanga' elaborates: "so after twenty years experience in the music industry I am starting my own imprint label called Poison Tongue Records through Metal Blade Records, working in conjunction with Darragh at Invictus Productions and Cyclone Empire. The reasons are many fold and despite the confused state the industry itself is in I felt it was time to step up and make a few things happen. Poison Tongue will be underground, make no bones about it and will concentrate on a couple of releases a year together with Invictus dealing with the underground traders, Cyclone hitting the middle ground and Metal Blade taking care of the shops, main mail-orders and bigger advertisements. Attack on all fronts! "The first release is the Blood Revolt Indoctrine album. Poison Tongue is responsible for the limited digi version available right now through Metal Blade in conjunction with Profound Lore in the States and Invictus here in Europe taking care of the jewel edition. "Next up is a joint collaboration on a new Destroyer 666 7" together with Invictus Productions. Something I'm very proud to be connected with having long connections with the Destroyer 666 boys, this should be out to coincide with their tour with Watain in the fall. Then we are going to begin working with fellow Aussies, and one-time Destroyer 666 members, Berserker and Assaulter on their new album, having recruited new members this is going to crush, plain and simple. A demo track is now up on the Poison Tongue site so be sure to check it out. More news will follow about releases to follow."
