Official press release:
Metal Blade Records is thrilled to announce the signing of German Progressive Death Metallers Over Your Threshold!
Arising from Munich, Germany Over Your Threshold began playing live in 2007. After numerous gigs with renowned Death Metal acts like Obscura, Deadborn and Hokum, the band made a name for itself in the local metal-scene. Over Your Threshold is known for tight playing and an expressive performance at live-shows.
The first record, Progress In Disbelief (EP), was self-released in 2008. Over the years the band's concept of Death Metal gained ground and its actual sound is enriched with a great diversity of musical elements. Influenced by different Death Metal bands (reaching from the 80's up to now) Over Your Threshold's music combines progressive Death Metal with a bit of Thrash and some fusion components.
In 2011, Over Your Threshold entered the Woodshed Studio in Landshut, Germany to record their first full-length album, entitled Facticity. The sound of Facticity is not only more blasting but also more technical, interspersed with energetic Death Metal riffing as well as melodic acoustic guitars. It's enriched by brute-force blast beats, Thrash Metal, jazzy harmonics and the distinct tones of smooth, fretless bass. Furthermore, the band recruited guest musicians Steffen Kummerer (Obscura, Thulcandra) and Jonas Fischer (Hokum, Ex-Obscura) to jazz up their debut album. Facticity was mixed and mastered by V. Santura (Triptykon, Dark Fortress).
Over Your Threshold comments on the deal with Metal Blade Records: "Metal Blade Records ranges among the highest renowned labels for extreme metal music and we are very glad about the possibility to release our upcoming debut album 'Facticity' via such a strong partner. We are looking forward to work with Metal Blade and the future development!"
Facticity will be released August 24th/27th via Metal Blade Records in Europe and on August 28th in North America!
