eOne/Good Fight Music announces two new signings

Official press release: eOne Music/Good Fight Music has signed Western Mass metal titans Within The Ruins and Tampa's finest, Dark Sermon to world wide deals. Both bands are slated to release new records early next year. Within The Ruins has been hard at work for nearly 10 years. With two full lengths already released and an impressive touring resume, the band has set the stage for what is to be their best material to date. Guitarist Joe Cocchi adds: "This is extremely exciting for us. We're proud to be a part of this new family. We look forward to growing as a band with eOne / Goodfight now behind us, and we're thankful to be working with people who care.The new album is complete! It's also completely different so we're very excited for our fans to hear it." Dark Sermon was formed in 2009 and has been making their mark on the Florida scene in spades. The band uses their fast, thrashy riffs, bone-crushing blast beats, and throaty vocals to bring something fresh and new to the table. Frontman Johnny Crowder comments: "We are humbled and extremely excited to be working with such heavy-hitters as eOne & Good Fight. We couldn't have asked for a more welcoming reception to our new label home. As far as the new record goes, there is a great deal of diversity throughout; think dark, think fast, think heavy. With great minds such as Scott Givens and Carl Severson behind us, it is safe to say that 2013 will be a big year for us."

JOE COCCHI IS IN THE DIRT

too bad dark sermon is boring and has an embarrassing name

anonymous 11/12/2012 1:26:25 PM

Within the Ruins rules. Dark Sermon sucks and the only person excited is Frank Fanelli... Wait who's Frank, oh yeah the singer of TWWK... So technically nobody is excited.

anonymous 11/12/2012 1:39:51 PM

I remember when they were called in reference to a sinking ship. Either way, great guys, about time another local got signed, stoked for them.

anonymous 11/12/2012 1:44:19 PM

Western Mass Metal Titans? Seriously?

In other news, I took a shit today.

Within The Ruins is sick. IMO they were the last decent band on Victory. I'm betting they'll probably get replaced in the next months or so with some girl-pants, makeup wearing synthcore band. That's the natural order of things these days.

"Throaty vocals" I thought we were talking about bands, not favors.

Johnny rockstar crowder with the ego boost that's already to big for his Fatass head.

"Western Mass Metal Titans? Seriously?" My thoughts, exactly. More like 9th rate metalcore band.

jonny crowder is literally the most annoying sucker i have ever had the displeasure of meeting. i dont mean a c-cksucker like he is a prick. i mean sucker as in ive never heard or seen anyone so flamboyantly gay when he meets your touring band as you pass through FL. its kind of a shame that he has no clue everyone thinks hes a toolbag. his band is okay. he makes them a joke.

LoydChristmas238 days ago how the hell has Tony Brummel not run this band into the ground yet? Unless you have mass appeal like ADTR, Victory's plan for your band is to just suck money out of your small but willing fan base for 1 maybe 2 albums until you either break up or try to get out of your contract, where he'll inevitably sue you anyways.

anonymous 11/12/2012 5:56:10 PM

Victory is going to the shitter

anonymous 11/12/2012 6:28:53 PM

Johnny Rockstar Crowder lol nailed it

Official Press Release: Victory Records is proud to welcome avant-garde metalers Remember The Fake Skyline to their roster. They have crafted an original sound combining abrasive metal with pop-punk, alt-rock and electronica. You may have seen them sharing the stage with such legendary acts as Suicide Silence, Woe Is Me, Asking Alexandria and Bassnectar.

anonymous 11/12/2012 9:32:24 PM

Not one fck was given throughout the land

anonymous 11/12/2012 9:40:49 PM

WTF is this label? These new sub-labels of sub-labels seem to be sprouting out of the ground. Does it actually benefit a band to be "signed" to a hole-in-the-wall label like this?

anonymous 11/12/2012 11:03:31 PM

gay BAND SWITCHES FROM EXTREMELY-GAY LABEL TO MODERATELY-GAY LABEL FLORIDIAN "DEATH METAL" BAND GETS SIGNED TO SAME MODERATELY-GAY LABEL; EVERYONE TAKES A COLLECTIVE SHIT

anonymous 11/12/2012 11:13:26 PM

Remember The Fake Skyline guitar Justin "Warlock" Jones comments: "We are very excited to join such a great roster. We've been in the studio with (former Pigeon Head drummer) Danny Snorgood working on our new album. I'm sure you've all heard our older stuff but I am excited to say that this will be more brutal and more melodic than our previous work. You guys (and girls) can catch us on the "Your Mom Likes Pickles" tour with Enter Shikari and Make Me Famous, tour dates coming soon."

anonymous 11/12/2012 11:35:25 PM

Remember The Fake Skyline keyboardist JB "Monsterteeth" Hanover comments: "It's great to be around such great people here at Victory. But the thing I'm most stoked about is that 10 years ago I would have had to be a merch guy but now thanks to this shitty genre, I can actually be a member of the band without knowing anything about music! See you guys soon!"

anonymous 11/13/2012 1:44:44 AM

Why is everyone bumming Within The Ruins? They are like a shitty third-rate Whitechapel rip-off

anonymous 11/13/2012 4:40:12 AM

"WTF is this label? These new sub-labels of sub-labels seem to be sprouting out of the ground. Does it actually benefit a band to be "signed" to a hole-in-the-wall label like this?" Actually, this is an independent label. Carl Severson and Co. started it after they sold off Ferret Music a couple years ago.

anonymous 11/13/2012 5:23:50 AM

Your knowledge of this subject is mad gayy my dude.

"Your knowledge of this subject is mad gayy my dude." No. I was an intern there at the time.

I had fun with Bryson once. Needless to say it was amazing. He BLASTED the shit out of my jerk. GET IT? No but really he's good at that and if your a girl you should let him blast you.

Dude WTR is fcking sick. Never heard of this other band before but Dark Sermon is a gayass name...anyways WTR is sick. Congrats on leaving Victory! Come to SoCal sometime soon!

anonymous 11/14/2012 9:20:24 AM

Deathcore is done. WTR will be lucky to last one more album cycle

anonymous 11/14/2012 1:16:37 PM

Dick Sermon

anonymous 11/14/2012 1:20:57 PM

Wtr isnt really deathcore brah. Either way, their tracks get iller and iller with every disc so im pumped to get this new one.

anonymous 11/14/2012 2:14:18 PM

dick stuff

anonymous 11/14/2012 4:38:28 PM

Wtr isnt really deathcore brah. Actually they are essentially deathcore but better musically than most of the other deathcore bands (SS, WC, Carnifex, JFAC). They remind me a little of Through The Eyes of The Dead. It's true though that deathcore is a dying scene, hopefully WTR can go more towards technical metal which they have been doing in their more recent work.

anonymous 11/15/2012 7:37:30 PM

Carl Severson and Co. started it after they sold off Ferret Music a couple years ago. I realize this, easily available on wikipedia. Sub-label or offshoot of ferret, same thing. Opportunistic music biz douches start "label", sign a couple popular but shitty bands and all of a sudden this "label" has cred, starts stealing bands like WTR from older but shittier labels. I'm not buying.

anonymous 11/16/2012 12:02:40 AM

Frank Fanelli is just happy somebody is saying his name

Stupid_News_Poster 12/1/2012 2:08:57 PM

Remember The Fake Skyline is stoked.
