Metal Blade Records signs In Solitude
Official press release: Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of the metal act In Solitude, who hails from Uppsala, Sweden (the same town as Watain and Invidious). In Solitude comments on signing to Metal Blade Records: "It's been a very long, uneasy process finding the right home for In Solitude. After going over several offers from labels, Metal Blade's genuine interest in, and understanding of our music, singled them out. This coupled with our respect for them, made this historic label the obvious choice. Over the years, Metal Blade has put out an amazing array of masterpiece records. We are very excited and honored to be able to add to this respected collection over the years to come." President of Metal Blade Records Michael Faley adds; "In Solitude has a sound that is reminiscent of the classic metal of UFO while stamping their own evil imprint on it. We are extremely excited to have In Solitude on our label and look forward to working with this talented band while turning this underground innovator into a household word. Look for their new album in 2011." The week of November 15th, the horde entered Nicke Anderson's (Hellacopters) brand new studio Gutterview Recorders in Stockholm, Sweden with producer Fred Estby (Dismember, Death Breath) to record the band's sophomore record, which will see release in the spring of 2011.The band comments; "From the first meeting with Fred, we knew that we wanted to work with him. He fully understood our needs and what we are aiming to create. After hearing his work, we knew that he was also a fan of organic production. This is very important to us. His studio is recently built and we are thrilled to be one of the first bands to record within its walls."
