Austrian extreme metallers MASTIC SCUM have inked a deal withMassacre Records. The band is currently working on material for its fifth studio album for a fall release.
Commented MASTIC SCUM guitarist Harry Gandler: “We are proud to announce that we signed a worldwide deal with one of our favorite labels. We know Massacre Records since quite a long time and are happy to be a part of it now!”
Regarding the progress of the songwriting sessions for the forthcoming CD, the band recently said, “We are fucking excited about the new record which follows our last album, ‘Dust’, our strongest release to date! The new release will be for sure a progression from the songwriting and sound production points of view! Most of the songwriting is already done, but we still have work to do! The new material so far is fucking brutal, combining shredding rhythms, mosh grooves and grindcore blast attacks! We sure give 100% in the songwriting process and we cannot wait to enjoy with everyone the new overdose of brutal distorted structures! Be prepared!! As our goal is to enter the studio in summer, we are very focused on our work and will play just a few live shows this spring/summer. Nevertheless, we really look forward to grind with you at our upcoming shows!”
