Metal Blade has announced the signing of Swedish death metallers EVOCATION. The band's fifth full-length album will be released in the first quarter of 2017.
Comments Marko Palmén of EVOCATION: "We are extremely proud to announce the signing of a new world wide recording agreement with Metal Blade Records.
"EVOCATION will, from this day on, be part of a legendary roster consisting of bands such as BEHEMOTH, BOLT THROWER, CANNIBAL CORPSE, MERCYFUL FATE, etc.
"For us, it was a natural choice to join Metal Blade Records since we already since several years had a successful co-operation with them for the licensing of EVOCATION's first three albums in the U.S. and Canada. Metal Blade Records is also a label that is widely known for its commitment within the death metal scene, which, for us, means a lot.
"On behalf of EVOCATION, I can only say that we are very pleased to have found a new home for the band. Huge thanx to Brian Slagel, our old friend Andreas Reissnauer and all the people at Metal Blade Records for making us a part of the Metal Blade family!"
