Metal Blade Records signs Cataract

Swiss metal/hardcore band Cataract has officially signed a world-wide deal with Metal Blade Records. Formed in 1998, the band has previously released material with Lifeforce Records, Ferret Music, and Life Recordings, among others. Cataract just finished mixing the new album, "With Triumph Comes Loss," with Tue Madsen (The Haunted) at Antfarm Studio in Denmark. The layout will be completed by Frans Mettes, who has worked with the band before, and the record is slated to hit stores in Europoe on September 6th. Here's a portion of a statement from the band regarding the deal: "This [deal] will take us much further than we've ever expected to go as a band. It gives us an even bigger artistic platform and opens up a whole new audience to express what we are all about. From what they have done for us already by now, we can say that we can't wait for the future to begin. Metal Blade is home to some of our personal faves like Cannibal Corpse, Unearth, Amon Amarth, As I lay dying, The Black Dahlia Murder and has been home for Slayer when they started off. So you can tell that we are very proud to be part of the Metal Blade family!"
