Metal Blade Records signs Ipsissimus

Wednesday, September 01, 2010 9:54 PM PT

Metal Blade Records is pleased to announce the signing of New Haven, CT black metal band Ipsissimus. The band inked a worldwide deal with Metal Blade Records and will be entering Sonic Environments studio in Bloomfield, CT to record their first full-length album and Metal Blade debut. Longtime friend of His Emissary, Jeff Weed, is not only the owner of Sonic Environments studio but has also stepped in as the band's "sonic alchemist" (aka engineer/producer). Ipsissimus began recording in June 2010 and are taking a short break before returning to Sonic Environments studio in early September to finish the record. Their feature full-length will include the band's EP Three Secrets of Fatima along with three new songs.

Ipsissimus drummer Haimatokharmes comments: "Metal Blade is a label that has been home to artists brutal, technical, filthy, blasting, wildly successful, and, most importantly, unique. Ipsissimus is very proud to join this family, and looks forward to adoring the Goat with them by producing ritual black metal that is truly ipsissima!"

"A 3 piece black metal symphony that is at the forefront of the American Black Metal movement… Ipsissimus is technical yet punishing, perfect for Metal Blade Records and fans of our brand of metal," adds Michael Faley, President of Metal Blade Records.

Ipsissimus was founded when His Emissary (guitars) and Haimatokharmes (drums) met by providence on 6/6/06 in New Haven, CT, and found in one another worthy vessels of channeling the occult philosophies into ritual Black Metal. lol
