Official press release:

St. Louis metal outfit Black Fast will enter Mana Studios in St. Petersburg, FL this week with veteran producer Erik Rutan to begin work on their debut LP for eOne Music. Known for his work with Hate Eternal, Six Feet Under, Goatwhore, and Cannibal Corpse, Rutan was an easy choice for the band. "We can't wait to work with Erik Rutan! Erik is a legend." says front man Aaron Akin. "Excited doesn't even do justice to the mind frame we are in. I've followed his work for over a decade, and he's been at it for way longer than that. I mean, it's f***ing Erik Rutan!"

"I am very excited to work with Black Fast," Rutan says himself. "They have a very unique style with a ton of energy, creativity, and a certain aggressiveness and fire rarely seen in this day and age of music." Creating a modern twist on the energetic riffs of metal's glory days, Black Fast harness the spirit of their metal forefathers, whether exploring hand-cramp-inducing riffs or blazing through straightforward thrash. Black Fast songs have a hungry ferocity reminiscent of the Bay Area thrash scene, the likes of which haven't been this raw or hyper-charged in decades. "From the moment I first heard them I knew that we would be a great pairing in making a massive album. Their potential is limitless and their originality and creativity shows no boundaries. I look forward to bringing out the best of them in their performances and helping craft a masterful record!"
