Wanted to share this with you guys because if you've never heard of Akphaezya, then they're probably one of the coolest bands you've never heard of.

French avantgarde metallers AKPHAEZYA have signed a new album deal with code666 (part of the Aural Music Group).

Akphaezya guitarist Stephan H. commented on the new deal: "We are very proud to work with a cult label like code666, The new album Anthology IV: The Tragedy Of Nerak which is mastered by Brian Gardner (DOWN, LAMB OF GOD, QOTSA) will be released in March 2012."

code666's Emiliano Lanzoni further commented: "Akphaezya are crazy, in the good way. I enjoyed their debut album, but when I received the new songs I was blown away: this is really top notch avantgarde metal: what code666 is renowned for."

Akphaezya are now working on the artwork and video for the new album which is scheduled to be released March 2012 on code666.

Sure was. I was kind of expecting them to fall off the map after not hearing anything about them for a long time, so this is fantastic news.
