Earache Records signs Cauldron

Official press release: Earache Records is proud to announce the signing of Toronto, Canada's Cauldron to a multi-album worldwide deal. The high energy traditional heavy metal three-piece have built a steady following while producing a fresh heavy metal sound built out of a passion and love for the genre, and a deep understanding of the elements that go into making memorable straight-up metal music. Having already issued the 'Into The Cauldron' EP to underground acclaim, the band is currently putting the finishing touches to their first full-length, due for release in early-2009. The band's sound encompasses all the best elements of classic metal, with nods to old school NWOBHM and a focus on stand out riffs and sung vocals. Commenting on the band's new label home, Cauldron vocalist/bassist JASON DECAY says: "Its pretty alright. I always thought Earache was the best name for a record label, and as a kid I was actually a little disappointed when I found out that I didn't come up with it! But at least I get to be a part of it after all! Its also nice to be a part of a catalogue that includes some of my favourite records, like Carcass' 'Heartwork' and Cathedral's 'Forest of Equilibrium'. I'm right into it!" Cauldron's Earache Records debut, 'Chained To The Nite,' is scheduled for an early-2009 release.
