Century Media Records signs two bands

Century Media Records signs two bands Continuing to live up to the slogan of "diversity in extremes," Century Media Records is proud to announce a licensing agreement with Dark Essence Records that sees Dead To This World and Helheim join the Century Family for the North American territories. Both bands are scheduled to release their first albums for Century Media on November 11th. Dead To This World was formed in Bergen, Norway in 2002 by Iscariah (Necrophagia, ex-Immortal) after his departure from Immortal. Originally formed as a solo project, Iscariah later recruited the mighty Kvitrafn (ex-Gorgoroth) behind the kit and has since tapped Thurzur (bass) and Divra Xul (guitar) to round out the line-up. Their debut album, "First Strike for Spiritual Renewance," was recorded at Conclave & Earshot studios with producer Bjørnar Nilsen. Having formed in 1992, Helheim are one of Norway's oldest and most revered Viking Metal bands. The band's sixth album, "Kaoskult," shows that with age comes maturity as the band unleashes their most progressive album yet. With their Century Media debut, Helheim focuses on the monumental and epic versus speed and brutality. Recorded by Bjørnar Nilsen, Kasoskult is the definitive epic masterpiece!
