Prosthetic Records signs Ancient VVisdom

Friday, March 9, 2012 6:52 PM PT

Official press release:

Austin, Texas-based Ancient VVisdom, whose "diabolical folk-metal" (classic rock) has already earned extensive critical acclaim, is pleased to announce their official union with Prosthetic Records. The label will reissue the group's latest release, A Godlike Inferno, in North America on April 24, the UK on April 30 and mainland Europe on May 4.

Nominated for Best Underground Band at this year's Metal Hammer Golden Gods Award, Ancient VVisdom will begin a European tour — their first time back on the road since supporting Ghost on an uber-successful national tour earlier this year — at the Inferno Festival in Norway on April 7. As a precursor to the unholy trek, Ancient VVisdom will spill their serpentine hymns upon unsuspecting ears in Austin on March 17 as part of the Scion-sponsored Death Comes Ripping SXSW day party alongside Early Graves, Primitive Weapons, Mutilation Rites and more.

Curious as to why prosthetic has signed this, it's not slick metalcore.

further proof that you haven't paid attention to the label since 2006...

This band does suck, though.
