SUSPERIA Confirm Split With NUCLEAR BLAST: 'It Was The Best Thing That Could Happen To Us'

Norwegian black/thrash metal act SUSPERIA have officially confirmed their split with Nuclear Blast Records after releasing two full-length albums through the label.

"Let's get this straight," vocalist Athera wrote in a recent e-mail. "Nuclear Blast has not dropped SUSPERIA. We have decided to leave the company and delete the contract due to lack of co-operation and fulfillment of our professional needs. And it's definitely not bad news. It was the best that could happen to us, that they agreed to let us go. We have much bigger plans ahead of us this coming year."

The band, who are said to be talking to STREET LEGAL mastermind Björn Boge about producing their next studio effort (Boge had served as the "vocal coach/producer" during the recording sessions for this year's "Vindication"), are currently seeking a new label home prior to commencing the recording sessions for the upcoming CD, tentatively due in late 2003.
