Nuclear Blast is proud to announce the signing of US hardcore metal kings, Hatebreed, who have just inked a record deal including all European territories. North America and Canada will be handled by Razor & Tie.
The forthcoming album was co-produced by Hatebreed, Zeuss (SUICIDE SILENCE, ALL THAT REMAINS, SHADOWS FALL) and Josh Wilbur (LAMB OF GOD, AVENGED SEVENFOLD). Wilbur also handled mixing duties on the new record. The new studio album will be supported by extensive global touring that will stretch well into 2014.
Commented singer Jamey Jasta, "We're really excited to be working with such great people at both Razor & Tie & Nuclear Blast. We've made an awesome album and we're chomping at the bit to get it out and hit the road. Global domination begins now."
Nuclear Blast A&R Jaap Wagemaker adds: "In the past we had seen Hatebreed play several times live when they were headlining indoor hardcore festivals or when they played one of the many shows at Graspop in Belgium! The band that defined metal / hardcore with their releases "Perseverance“ and "The Rise of Brutality“ will be releasing another milestone in their career by the beginning of 2013!! After seeing Hatebreed turning this years Hellfest upside down in front of 30,000 hardcore and metal-fans and doing the same a couple of months later at Bloodstock in the UK it became very clear that Hatebreed and Nuclear Blast would be the perfect match. Something that became even stronger after we had the chance to listen to a couple of new songs! We are very proud to welcome Hatebreed to the ever-growing Nuclear family!! In 2013 their new album will be out and I can tell you that the fans who have been waiting for this for a couple of years now won't be disappointed!! Hatebreed is stronger than ever!!“
The sixth studio record is set to be released in January 2013.
The band will also hit the road headlining the notorious Persistence Tour which marks the first live run for the upcoming album.

As far as Global Metal Apocalypse is aware, we only know of Caribbean metal bands from:
Trinidad & Tobago / Grenada / Cuba / Puerto Rico / Dominica / Dominican Republic / Bahamas / Jamaica / Curacao
As of today, "Dojana," the first music video by Dordeduh - the new band of the former Negura Bunget masterminds Hupogrammos and Sol Faur - is online!
"Dordeduh" comes from three Romanian words, annexed together. "Dor de duh" means "Longing for spirit".
Hailing from the Eastern European country of Romania, this band is sure to challenge first place alongside Negura Bunget.
Dordeduh's debut album, 'Dar De Duh', will be out in North America on November 13th via Lupus Lounge / Prophecy Productions.
On October 12th, Seance Records will release Crowned's 'Vacuous Spectral Silence' debut. A cloaked trinity, Crowned's 'Vacuous Spectral Silence' is Australian black metal created under night’s transcendental veil with intelligence, subtlety, and abundant atmosphere, an austere opus traversing life, death, and infinity. A new rising force in the Australian underground creating atmospheric black metal for fans of Burzum, Wolves in the Throne Room, Mayhem, Drudkh, Abigor, Summoning, Midnight Odyssey, and Spire, the silence of ages past is broken by Crowned's spectral choir. Their murky veil of atmospheric black metal echoes like the chant of choral ghosts in forgotten crypts, channeling a haunting resonance of the dark ages as creeping shadows enshroud, light scarcely breaking upon the cold stone where a Vacuous Spectral Silence lingers eternally.
