Official press release:

Prosthetic Records has signed the UK's Dragged Into Sunlight to a worldwide recording contract. This marks the first signing of a UK act for the label, which will re-release the UK-based band's album, "Hatred For Mankind," in April, 2010. The album, recorded by Tom Dring and Billy Anderson (Eyehategod, Neurosis, Weedeater), was originally released in 2009 by Mordgrimm Records (Anaal Nathrakh, Covenant). The mysterious band, whose sound can be described as a mixture of black, death and doom metal, has shared the stage with acts such as Vader, Grief, Trap Them, Gama Bomb, and Lazarus Blackstar.

The band, who appear masked in photos, play in near total darkness and smoke and do not publicize their individual names, commented about today's heavy music scene: "A few blastbeats, a scrawled logo and people accept it, regardless of the reality. Dragged Into Sunlight is a concept, we've taken the time to come up with our own understanding and presentation of what we want to see associated with extreme metal in 2009 and beyond."

The band will be making its first trek to North America this spring in support of the re-release. Check out a culling of the gruesome beast here.
