05. Unholy Cult
06. Into Everlasting Fire

IMMOLATION recently inked a worldwide, multi-album contract with Nuclear Blast Records. The band's eighth studio LP will be released in early 2010.

Commented the group: "We are looking forward to working with Nuclear Blast, a classic label that has become one of the largest driving forces in metal today. We intend to have a new album out for early next year. Expect the new one to have some of the most dark and intense music we've ever put together!"

Jaap Wagemaker, who works for the A&R department at Nuclear Blast's headquarters in Germany, stated: "Nuclear Blast is very proud to announce the signing of IMMOLATION! Few other bands have the ability to embody torment and suffering into their music in the way that IMMOLATION does. By fabricating the essence of agony within their sound, IMMOLATION immerses you into the depths of eternal damnation where you can actually hear them burning within the unquenchable flames. They are the type of band that really put the death back into death metal. We are so stoked to welcome IMMOLATION to the Nuclear family and look forward raising the fires of hell for you once again."

Gerardo Martinez, label manager and A&R representative for Nuclear Blast's USA office, added: "Without sounding nostalgic, 1991's 'Dawn Of Possession' was definitely the soundtrack of my high school years. Very few bands from that era still make great records and are relevant, and that's why IMMOLATION fit right in with our roster. We are very proud to have them on board!"

The upcoming album will be the third consecutive release featuring IMMOLATION's current lineup:

Ross Dolan - Bass, Vocals
Robert Vigna - Guitars
Bill Taylor - Guitars
Steve Shalaty - Drums

IMMOLATION's seventh release, "Shadows in the Light", came out in May 2007 via Century Media Records. The CD was recorded at Millbrook Sound Studios with producer Paul Orofino.

Guitarist Robert Vigna previously stated about "Shadows in the Light": "It's aggressive, emotional and haunting. The disc delivers all of IMMOLATION's attributes, as it's catchy as hell, very direct and to the point. The album devastates on all levels, from blasting madness and militant charges to sorrow-filled doom and depression. It is a very complete record with soulful solos, thunderous raging drums and vocals that lash right out at you!"

Along with bands like SUFFOCATION, INCANTATION and MORTICIAN, IMMOLATION is one of the all important forefathers of New York death metal. Not only has the band developed its musical capabilities over the years, but it has also become one of the most intense live acts in the industry.
