Surprised to see Century Media signing them! Very cool though, they deserve it. :rocker:

Century Media Records is proud to announce the signing of MORBUS CHRON from Sweden. Often described as a perfect mix between Autopsy and Carnage, MORBUS CHRON clearly is one of the most talented and promising bands among all the new traditional death metal acts which have been popping around since more than 3 years now.

MORBUS CHRON comments: "Always expect the unexpected. MORBUS CHRON are thrilled to join the ranks of Century Media Records. We know that with greater assistance and sturdier tools, the more clearly we can focus our attention solely on the music. So it is with big smiles that we ink this deal tonight. To keep the momentum going, we're entering Gutterview Studios in March/April to record our first 10" EP. Expect to have us around for a while."

Jerry MarÚchal, A&R at Century Media Europe comments: "Coming from Sweden without sounding like the 9265465th clone of Left Hand Path Entombed is not a sinecure, to say the least. What MORBUS CHRON has been achieving for more than 3 years since their first demo tape is far more impressive as the band manages to merge varied and classic influences ranging from US death metal to Swedish and Euro death metal with their own very personal conceptions be it musically or aesthetically. The result is an intense and fascinating traditional death metal act. Period."

As previously mentioned, MORBUS CHRON will soon record new tracks for a 10" vinyl to be released at the occasion of their first live appearance in Germany at the Hell's Pleasure festival July 20th and 21st, 2012 in P÷▀neck, East Germany along with other Century Media Metal of Death youngsters Sonne Adam and Necrowretch! Later this year, the band will start writing the follow up to their critically acclaimed first album entitled "Sleepers In The Rift" which was rewarded with a fabulous 9 out 10 points review in German Rock Hard magazine.

I'd love to see these guys live, so hopefully this means that they might score a spot on some US tour.

That would be awesome. Since it's a worldwide contract I would say there is a possibility of that in the future, but not until they become more established in Europe first.
