February 28, 2004

Relapse Records recording artists comprise almost one quarter of Alternative Press magazine's "25 Most Important Bands in Metal" list. Relapse garnered six of the twenty five available positions in the just unveiled register. AP's "25 Most Important Bands in Metal" were determined via a poll of a host of musicians, writers and other metal experts by the noted magazine.

Relapse artists the DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN, MASTODON, HIGH ON FIRE, NEUROSIS, PIG DESTROYER and NILE join an impressive list of the magazine's leading heavy music acts which also includes LAMB OF GOD, the MELVINS, ARCH ENEMY, HATEBREED, OPETH and KILLSWITCH ENGAGE, amongst others. The full list of AP's "25 Most Important Bands in Metal" can be found in the magazine's April, 2004 issue — on stands now.

The AP poll advances what will be a busy year for each Relapse band found on the magazine's list as the DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN (June, 2004),MASTODON (August, 2004),HIGH ON FIRE (Fall, 2004),NEUROSIS (Spring, 2004),PIG DESTROYER (Fall, 2004) and NILE (late 2004 / early 2005) are all hard at work on their highly anticipated forthcoming releases.
