Pulverised Records has announced the signing of Japanese death metallers GxSxD.

GxSxD (which stands for GOD SEND DEATH) exploded onto the Japanese extreme metal scene in 2002 and barely a decade into the band's career, the group found itself touring massively throughout its homeland and thus gaining widespread popularity as one of the most powerful death metal acts to have emerged from Japan. With an unforgettable trademark of the Japanese-tattooed twin brothers Yusuke and Yosuke Oka's synchronised windmill headbanging style; and with the unforgiving assault of heavily-induced Euro-death metal, GxSxD is definitely the perfect combination of flawless musicianship with an amazing stage presence.

Commented the band: "Finally we have found our home!! We are very excited to work with Pulverised Records since we've been recognizing them as one of best label. We'll prove what we can do. Expect our Pulverised release."

Added Pulverised Records A&R Manager Calvin: "I was instantly jaw-dropped by what I heard when I discovered GxSxD! Unbelievably tight and a literally vicious twin-guitar attack, GxSxD caught our attention and we knew they are an exceptional class of their own. After some discussions with the band, the deal was quickly sealed and plans are currently underway for their second full-length effort, which we should expect sometime this year. GxSxD is truly an unstoppable force and be prepared for their brand of barbaric death metal!"

Pulverised Records label manager Roy Yeo also added: "I had the pleasure of seeing GxSxD live in action when they stopped by in Singapore recently. The band is just visually stunning on stage and I was absolutely blown away! GxSxD is probably one of the most outstanding death metal band coming from Asia that I have heard in a long time, and also not forgetting that Japanese bands are notoriously known for producing real quality metal. It is a great honour to have GxSxD as a part of the Pulverised family and we will expect nothing less than a devastatingly crushing album from GxSxD!"
