New York-based thrash metallers PYTHON have inked a deal with Chavis Records.

PYTHON was formed in 2001 by Joe and Kurt Holzapfel, who later added Ken Decker and Geoff Allen to the group's lineup. The band has been generating massive amounts of noise within the heavy metal community with their self-released debut EP, "Good & Evil". Reminiscent to the Bay Area thrash scene, PYTHON pulls influences from metal greats such as EXODUS, TESTAMENT, FLOTSAM AND JETSAM, ICED EARTH, NEVERMORE, JAG PANZER and ANGEL DUST.

PYTHON's new album, entitled "Demons Within", will be recorded in December for an early 2006 release. The band are currently in the final writing and pre-production phase and will head to Alpine Sound before the end of the year.

Commented label owner Bill Chavis: "It's a great fit for the label. I've wanted to delve into the heavier market for sometime but really hadn't found the right band until now. The guys in PYTHON are young, aggressive and are very talented. Their music and style are exactly what we're looking for to further expand our growth in the music industry but more important unleash more metal to the masses. It reminds me of 1980 something all over again. They possess everything that the 'godfathers' of thrash did and still do this day."
