Seventh Rule Recordings has announced the signing of Chicago's PLAGUE BRINGER.

PLAGUE BRINGER is a duo from Chicago whose music is "an assault of programmed bulldozer blast beats, de-tuned stabbing guitars and savage animalistic vocals, yielding a relentless blend of spastic electronic carnage," according to a press release.

PLAGUE BRINGER was formed in December 2002 by Greg Ratajczak, an accomplished sound engineer and guitar player who has played in and or worked with numerous indie rock bands in recent years, most notably with MODEST MOUSE on their Epic Records debut, "The Moon and Antarctica". Greg initially sought out long-time friend and gifted writer Josh Rosenthal to contribute lyrically. Josh eventually became the killer lead vocals and the duo has been bringing the plague ever since.

PLAGUE BRINGER has played countless shows in the Midwest with the likes of PSYOPUS, MISERY INDEX, THE BLACK DAHLIA MURDER, INTERNAL BLEEDING, THE END, MUTILATED, PUTRID PILE, HEWHOCORRUPTS, INDIAN and THE LOCUST , and toured with BODIES IN THE GEARS OF THE APPARATUS in August of 2004, and with HARLOTS in the winter of 2005.

In the summer of 2005, the band completed work on their self-produced debut full-length album, "As the Ghosts Collect the Corpses Rest", which was mastered by Scott Hull (PIG DESTROYER, AGORAPHOBIC NOSEBLEED). Seventh Rule Recordings is planning a May/June release date for the record.
