Official press release:

Today, Napalm Records announces the signing of Texan doom occultists Venomous Maximus. The label will be releasing the band's debut album, Beg Upon the Light, worldwide this summer, with their first new album for Napalm slated for 2014.

Says vocalist/guitarist Greg Higgins, "We are pleased to announce that we've signed with Napalm Records. They are going to release Beg Upon the Light this summer and another new full-length we are working on in 2014. All of this comes to a surprise, because this project was meant to be something that no one would ever hear about. So as time went on and we started to be successful, we always agreed to do everything ourselves, to keep it our way. The only way we were ever going to work with anyone was if we knew they were dedicated to worship the past as we were. Now that we are here with Napalm, we will continue to create this hidden message. But with their help, they will be revealing this to the masses, and we are okay with that now. Because of the records we first created only for ourselves will be released with everything we dreamed from the beginning, destiny has come for us to work with Napalm Records. Our hearts are in Texas but our souls come from Europe. Now having a family in Europe that takes care of the land where we arose, our spirits fly, where we are able to focus on the beautiful."

Adds Sebastian Muench, A&R for Napalm Records, "Sometimes, very seldom, you get the chance to discover a band that brings back the same feelings you first had when you listened as a teenager for the first time to Metallica's Ride the Lightning or Black Sabbath's Paranoid - you just know you've found something very magical and you are hooked for life. Venomous Maximus is such a band, and and we are thrilled, excited, and tremendously honored to call them part of the Napalm family."

In the meantime, the video for Venomous Maximus' "Path of Doom" (from Beg Upon the Light) can be viewed below.

The North American release date for Beg Upon the Light shall be announced shortly.
