Unique Leader Records signs Alterbeast
Official press release: Alterbeast is a technical death metal band hailing from Sacramento California, formed in 2011 under the working title: Gary Busey Amber Alert (GBAA). Alterbeast quickly began writing songs, combining influences from favorites such as The Black Dahlia Murder, Necrophagist and Spawn of Possession, along with numerous other classic death metal acts like Dissection and Morbid Angel. After a year of dedicated writing, Alterbeast released a demo in the winter of 2012 and played countless shows alongside such greats as Deicide, Dying Fetus, Testament, Revocation, Exhumed, Severed Savior and many others. They soon began gaining momentum in the death metal community and became known for their intense riffs, blistering drums, elaborate guitar solos and a very developed stage show. One year after releasing their demo they entered Augmented Audio at Sound Temple Studios to record their debut album "Immortal" with former The Black Dahlia Murder bassist Ryan "Bart" Williams engineering the record. After recording at Sound Temple, the band acquired Gabe Seeber (The Kennedy Veil) for drum duties. Deciding that it was a must to have Gabe's talents on this record, Alterbeast booked days at legendary Castle Ultimate with engineer Zack Ohren to record drums and mix and master. Immortal will consist of 8 tracks of extreme, melodic, brutal, and uncompromising death metal that is slated to be released early 2014 with Unique Leader Records. Monumental steps are to be taken in 2014 with huge opportunities on the horizon, so keep your sites set on Alterbeast.
