Swedish death/thrashers IMPIOUS have inked a deal with Metal Blade Records. The group plan on entering the studio this summer to begin recording their fourth album, tentatively due in October.

"We saw the band live when they toured with NECROPHOBIC in early 2003 and they kicked MAJOR ASS!" a spokesperson for Metal Blade Records Europe said in an official statement. "We see many shows each year, but this was one of the few moments we felt completely blown away. We didn't get into the albums they released before very much, but the pre-production with five brand new songs they sent us in late 2003 showed an explosion in songwriting and intensity. Much, no, MUCH better than all their previous stuff!"

IMPIOUS hail from Trollhättan, Sweden — the city that has already brought the "Deathrace Kings" THE CROWN to the world of metal. The music of this quintet is an intense and sharp combination of death and thrash metal.

"We are very excited about signing to Metal Blade," said guitarist Valle Adzic. "To be on the same roster as some of the finest bands in the extreme metal industry just feels fucking awesome. Very few record labels have such a good reputation, such an amazing history, and such a bright future. We're definitely looking forward to be a part of all that."

IMPIOUS lineup:

Martin Akesson – vocals
Valle Adzic - guitars
Robin Sörqvist – guitars
Erik Peterson – bass
Mikael Norén - drums
